Brandon Mebane Impressed by Bolts’ Talent on D – Chargers.com
“There is so much talent on this team it’s unreal,” he said. “I was telling guys there is more talent on this defense than there was in Seattle. If you look at the draft, you have four first round draft picks and you have five second round draft picks all on defense. In Seattle, you only had two first rounders and one second rounder. If we put it together, just play together and work on our skill, I think the sky is the limit for our defense. It’s amazing. The skill. The talent level. It’s there. All we’ve got to do is just believe in each other and play together.

Padres reaping benefits of refined approach on D – MLB.com

Currently, they sit sixth in the Majors with 13 Defensive Runs Saved — compared with their dismal minus-28 mark from a year ago, which ranked 26th overall.
No time to waste in trading Matt Kemp – San Diego Union-Tribune
The Padres put a lot of stock into competing last season, only to fail miserably. As a result, Preller spent the offseason trading away several key players as a way to jump-start a rebuilding project. Make no mistake, the Padres are rebuilding. Which means there won’t be any room for a 30-something outfielder making over $20 million per year.
Not only would it be good for the Padres to take Kemp off their payroll, but they also need to make room in their outfield for their top two prospects, Manuel Margot and Hunter Renfroe. Margot is currently 39th on Scout.com’s MLB Top-100 Prospects.
