Michel Baez showed why he received a big bonus from the Padres with his impressive 2017 season.
The surprisingly not-terrible San Diego Padres.
Late-season contract extensions for Marco Estrada, Kurt Suzuki, Tucker Barnhart, and Clayton Richard.
On the 32nd episode of the DFA podcast, Bryan and R.J. take a left turn from their recent discussions about good teams to talk about a bad one: the San Diego Padres.

Another reason to worry about baseball getting boring.
