Padres’ Pomeranz drawing interest from Rangers, others – San Diego Union-Tribune
The Padres’ current station is such that, with the exception of All-Star first baseman Wil Myers, the club is open to dealing anyone on its roster.

So many retro brown-and-gold batting practice jerseys and hats — a nod to the history of the host San Diego Padres — were sold that sales blew by the previous records set in San Francisco in 2007 and New York in 2008.

SDSU’s Shepard takes his shot at NBA – San Diego Union-Tribune
