  • Padres Trail: A night with Baseball Prospectus

    I've been thinking about "Commie Ball" for the last couple of days and I'm beginning to conclude that just like real Communism it won't work. The current Padres lineup now has two small and scrappy middle infielders and two quick and athletic outfielders. You're not going to find fast players at any other position. You still need guys that can consistently hit even in Commie Ball and those players are even harder to find at Petco Park.
