Cameron Maybin won't need surgery after all
Just when all hope seemed to be lost for Cameron Maybin's 2014 season we all get a heaping dose of hope. I was not expecting that at all. When I hear "ruptured bicep tendon" I automatically think surgery as the best case scenario and amputation as the worst case.
To think that Maybin might be back on the field in 4 to 6 weeks sounds ridiculousl...
Rangers 8, Padres 4: Kennedy Faceplants, Torres Flails
Tommy Medica's ninth inning heroics were too little, too late.
I didn't actually see this game, because I'm in the process of moving and my TV and cable connection are not in the same place. And I couldn't listen to it either, because there was no radio. But looking at the box score, I'm okay with that.
The Boys of Summer
We wait with great anticipation and eyes set on the future of the 2014 season.
The warm Southern California breeze has begun to blow, and soon our San Diego boys of summer will be scattering our field of green and dawning blue, white and gold once again.

Can Yonder Alonso and Tommy Medica Be A Platoon?
Alonso and Medica both play 1B and hit from opposite sides of the plate. This is an idea worth exploring.
With Maybin out at least two months and the Padres already likely to carry 5-6 players capable of playing the OF, the roster spot vacated by the 26 year old CF could go to a non-outfieder. One of the names in that mix is Tommy Medica. One issue with M...
Jedd Gyorko: Error Magnet
Error cards come in many forms. Better-known variants include reversed negatives or a photograph of the wrong player, but most errors are less glaring and slip through the cracks. Jedd Gyorko has fallen victim to Topps' shoddy quality control at least twice already in his nascent career.
