2/10/2016 | Lefferts tops list of Padres' middle relievers

We are going to close my Padres Top-Five lists next week with the five pitchers who I believe to be the top closers in Padres history.

2/10/2016 | 5 bats could shape how NL West is won

The Dodgers and Giants have ruled the National League West in recent seasons with dominant pitching, but the division also houses some serious offense.

It's hard to believe the All-Star Game could fall into the category of too much of a good thing. But that's what happened for four years starting in 1959, when Major League Baseball decided to play two All-Star Games each summer. The result didn't exactly measure up to the level of Midsummer Classics, and the dual All-Star Game experiment ended in 1962.

It was in that kitchen where Don Orsillo's love for baseball grew, hanging on the every word of popular broadcaster Ken Coleman, waiting, probably impatiently, for his favorite player, Dwight Evans, to take his next turn at bat. This is where Orsillo, hired in September by the Padres to call games on television and radio in 2016, realized what he wanted to do with his life. But it wasn't trying to be the next Dwight Evans.

2/1/2016 | American League rode relief to 1958 ASG win

The All-Star Game has a history of great individual performances and great games between the National League and the American League. Unfortunately for the 48,829 fans gathered on July 8, 1958, at Memorial Stadium in Baltimore, the 25th All-Star Game was no classic.


2/1/2016 | Towers would love a Freese deal do-over

By no means was Kevin Towers an inexperienced general manager at the time he dealt a Minor League infielder by the name of David Freese to the Cardinals for veteran center fielder Jim Edmonds.
