Can GM A.J. Preller justify selling in July after that wild offseason of wheeling and dealing? I don't feel like he can. It'll be fun to watch if he does, though. We know he's not shy.
Leading into the All-Star break, the Padres have a 10-game road trip to St. Louis, Pittsburgh and Texas. I'd suggest they get their act together before that or it's gonna be a bloodbath. Maybe Tuesday night's late comeback and win in extras was the start.
They've lost six of eight and also their manager. Things are now looking bad in a season that was supposed to finally be fun.
They've won five of their last seven, but something still just doesn't seem right.
Between the offseason activity, optimism heading into the season, flashes of well-played baseball and what should probably be a more exciting and/or better team, this is the NL version of the White Sox, right? (I have higher hopes moving forward for the Padres).
You know, Will Venable is a very nice complementary piece. It's fair to say very underrated overall.
Where did Matt Kemp's power go? He had 17 homers in 64 games after the All-Star break last season. This year? He has one.
Andrew Cashner is 1-6, but has a good ERA. And in his last four starts, he's gotten a total of three runs scored for him combined.
One of the biggest upsets of the season has been Craig Kimbrel looking vulnerable. I wouldn't expect that to continue.
I can't apologize enough for whatever jinx I put on the Padres after gushing about them last week. What a bummer to have this karmic power and never be able to learn how to properly use it. Seriously, though, keep the faith. It's a long season and there's talent here.
