DAILY LINKS: Aztecs notch first road win of the year vs. rival UNLV

Kell powers Aztecs to road win at UNLV – San Diego Union-Tribune
“Coach Fish came to me (during the timeout) and said, ‘I’m going to need you for the last nine minutes,’” Kell recounted. “I took that as a green light.”

Kell would score 13 of SDSU’s next 15 points, taking over a game, putting a wobbling team on his shoulders, grabbing the wheel and driving the bus to SDSU’s first road win of the season, 64-51 before an announced crowd of 10,007 that looked about 3,007 too high.

For one second, San Diego was on the mind of Chargers’ Anthony Lynn as L.A. era kicked off – Yahoo! Sports
New Los Angeles Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn began his introductory news conference by nearly referring to himself as the head coach of the San Diego Chargers. Oops!

Bolts braintrust bumbles in L.A. presser – San Diego Union-Tribune
President of Football Operations John Spanos, who should know better, stood at the Carson soccer stadium where the Los Angeles Chargers will play this season and waxed on about the facility’s spiffy video board and what it will do for his football team.

The remark implied that the truly awful video board at the former Chargers home, woefully neglected Qualcomm Stadium, created a disadvantage for past Chargers head coaches, on top of providing fans a poor visual experience.

If video clarity is so important, why didn’t Team Spanos buy an effective video board sometime in the past 15 or 20 years?

Trevor Cahill has agreed to a deal with the Padres – Gaslamp Ball
Cahill may have signed with the Padres with an understanding that he will get the chance to reestablish his career as a starter after spending most of the last three years working out of the bullpen. He has the repertoire of a starter and was successful early in his career, so stretching him back out so he can work through a lineup a few times shouldn’t be a tall task.

VIDEO: Andy Green On Locking Up Wil Myers: “The Sky’s The Limit For Him”
On Monday, Padres manager Andy Green talked about locking up Wil Myers to a long-term contract, and what he means to the Padres as core player to build around for the future.

For better or worse, Wil Myers now the face of the Padres – FanRag Sports Network
The team officially signed first baseman Wil Myers to a six-year extension worth $83 million on Tuesday, giving him by far the biggest contract commitment of any player currently on the roster — the second highest commitment belongs to Yangervis Solarte, at $7.5 million over two years with a pair of club options afterwards.

The deal gives Myers a $15 million signing bonus up front, then pays him relatively nothing over the next three seasons — $2 million each in 2017 and 2018, then $3 million in 2019, before the bought-out years of free agency kick in and Myers earns $20 million a year from 2020 through 2022, with a team option for 2023 at $20 million with a $1 million buyout. Myers also receives a $1 million bonus if traded, which is important because that’s probably exactly what’ll happen.
