Rumor Roundup: Are the Jays Preparing to Splurge?

2014 Blue Jays : Free Agency :: 2012 Blue Jays : Trading ?

Russell Martin is already in tow. But if there’s fire to go with the smoke below, there might be a whole lot more to come.

Fantasy Freestyle: What to Make of Odrisamer Despaigne

2

Keith Cromer

Can the Cuban righty be a reliable fantasy option in 2015?

So, here is a scenario I am assuming a few of you fellow fantasy baseball brothers and sisters were faced with just two months into the baseball season….

It’s late May, and your pitching is scuffling a bit. Despite the shaky start, you have faith in your squad and know that just one or two waiver-wire pitching finds could turn your season around. You need to act fast, though, so as not to dig a hole in ERA and WHIP from which you might not recover. You play in competitive leagues, and there is not much pitching available on waivers. You see a note saying the Padres have just promoted a 27-year-old Cuban righty named Odrisamer Despaigne to Triple-A and that he could be called up to the majors soon.

Pebble Hunting: The Padres' Sad Team Leaders

8

Sam Miller

What the back of the Padres' team leader card will tell us about the Padres, baseball, and team leader cards.

I remember the 1987 Cardinals team-leader card, where on the back it said the most home runs hit by any Cardinal the previous season was 13, by Andy Van Slyke. That was absurd, and it was so absurd that I had to explore further, and upon further exploration I learned my first lesson in team building: The Cardinals, with that artificial turf, were built for speed. They stole 262 bases. They didn't need to hit home runs, except inasmuch as they finished with the fewest runs scored in the National League and a .600 OPS. That was a fun team-leader card. It was an educational team-leader card.

Next year's Padres team-leader card is not going to be as fun. It'll be dispiriting, it'll be disorienting, and if it teaches you anything it'll be how to spell "Gyorko." But there is fun to be had with it, and this is the Fun Fact portion of this post:

The Call-Up: Rymer Liriano

3

Craig Goldstein

The Padres promote a player who has plenty of upside but could struggle early on.

The Situation: The Padres announced on Monday that they were calling up outfield prospect Rymer Liriano, who checked in at no. 5 on our offseason Padres’ Top 10. To make room for Liriano, San Diego designated folk hero and professionally handsome man Jeff Francouer for assignment.

Sam Miller, Mike Gianella and Jeff Moore

The Yankees land one of the era's most trade-rumored players, and the Padres' return is, in the end, bitterly small.

The ninth-inning perils in Anaheim should be fixed by Huston Street, while the Padres further deplete a weak Angels farm system.

Ben and Sam banter about the Nationals, then discuss where the Padres went wrong and whether Josh Byrnes deserved his dismissal.

The firing of Josh Byrnes ends a period of unprecedented GM job security. Did he deserve to get the axe?

In March, I wrote about the unprecedented job security major-league general managers have enjoyed over the previous two-plus years. Led by the long-tenured Brian Sabean, Billy Beane, Brian Cashman, and Dan O’Dowd (who was forced to share the throne but hasn’t been relieved of his duties), GMs have seen their occupation, historically a high-turnover one in which on-field success was the only sure route to remaining employed, morph into one that comes standard with the owner’s commitment to stay the course, even if it means suffering through some lean times. Accordingly, I dubbed the new strain of nearly unemployment-proof GMs the “Duracell GM Generation”—a cohort of front-office head honchos who last.

On Sunday, Josh Byrnes’ battery died. Byrnes, the Padres’ GM since October 26, 2011, became the first GM fired since the Astros axed Ed Wade on November 27, 2011. That’s a streak of 938 firing-free days—by far the longest such streak over at least the last four decades, even though baseball’s expansion to 30 teams has created more opportunities for a change to take place.
