2010-12-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Mingled joy and pain. Some fans think that last offseason proves Hoyer can build a contending Padre team for 2011. I look at the roughly 60 VORP, plus other losses, and can't see us winning more than 72 games. Any hope for next season other than watching a good front office evaluate its options for the future?
(Geoff Young Fan from San Diego)
I really do think the Padres could contend in 2011 even without Gonzalez, but things have to break very, very right for them. If Wade LeBlanc gets a lot of starts, or they don't sign a solid replacement at first base, or Everth Cabrera can't do anything for them at all, then things have not gone right and they are probably stuck at .500 at best.

The problem is, it's going to be tough to evaluate that until we see who the new shortstop and first baseman are. I'm convinced Cabrera would make a fine second baseman with his strong arm and defensive instincts, so if they can nab a shortstop then they are fine there. None of the pieces the Padres lost from the 2010 season are irreplaceable except for Gonzalez, but losing him doesn't automatically make them a terrible team if they play the rest of their cards right.

2010-06-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)In my very deep, 14 team mixed league I'm in need of some pop, and have a day to put in a claim on Stanton (thankfully I have $ to do so). The question is, my pitching staff is very young & volatile, which of these 4 guys would you recommend dropping: W. Davis, Ely, C. Richard, W. LeBlanc? I'm leaning Wade Davis fwiw...
(Andy from Chicago)
I can see Davis getting pushed out by Hellickson. Wade LeBlanc had a few iffy starts, but he's in the NL with Petco, and probably won't get bumped by Tim Stauffer if he can keep it up. (Marc Normandin)
2010-01-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Why did I spend 5% of my tiny budget on Jerry Hairston when my starting rotation could use another full pitcher's worth of not-sucky innings?
(Jed Hoyer from Beautiful Downtown San Diego)
Because replacing Wade LeBlanc or Tim Stauffer is not going to win the NL West, and a guy like Hairston has his uses. Plus, with Jerry and Scott on the same club, I hope to see some kind of super Hairston, like a Voltron Hairston that's capable of playing defense and hitting well but counts as two roster spots.
