Not too much to me: I'm a 20 year-old college student, who loves the Padres and Chargers. Big fan of Radiohead, Coldplay, U2, Bob Dylan and Imogen Heap, and anything that isn't Miley Cryus and (excluding Johnny Cash) country.

Review: The Benchwarmers

In the short time I've been reviewing baseball movies for this site, I haven't seen a film from this sub genre that I can honestly say I hated. Sure, I didn't care for Fever Pitch, but even with...

One name to watch, according to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports (via Twitter) is Padres right-hander Luke Gregerson. The 28-year-old could appeal to clubs as he has a 3.05 ERA with 9.5 K/9 and 2.6 BB/9 on the year. While Gregerson could be a valuable trade chip for San Diego, the Mets reportedly turned down a proposal that would have sent Gregerson to Queens for Daniel Murphy.

Could Gregerson be trade bait now?

Power-hitting outfielder Carlos Quentin and the Padres are on the verge of completing a extension that will keep him in San Diego and take him off the trade block, people familiar with the talks told CBSSports.com. The deal is believed to be worth about $27 million over three years and includes a very reachable bonus that could bring the total to $30 million.

"The doctors have told me they feel they caught the cancer early and there was not much of it there," he said in a story published Saturday. The parotid cancer was diagnosed after the former Padres star had a third round of surgery since 1997 to remove a tumor on the parotid gland. The previous procedures found no malignancies.

Sabean also was asked about a potential change in the rotation. One suggestion has been flopping Tim Lincecum and Barry Zito on Thursday and Friday so Zito would face the Diamondbacks and Lincecum the Padres. Sabean suggested the Giants might go the other way.

A.J. Smith is an egomaniac that must be fired. While he did a great job building the Chargers into an NFL powerhouse, he seems more content sitting on the roof watching his empire burn as he plays the fiddle instead of helping his team actually do what they are supposed to do; win the Super Bowl.

Bleacher Report: Fire A.J. Smith!

Padres Power Rankings

Even after being swept at home by the Phillies, The Padres are ranked #2 on MLB.com's Power Rankings. San Diego has the best record in the NL and it could be the best team in the league. The Padres' hitting has caught up with its superb pitching, a dangerous combination for any opponent.
