Ron Fowler joined Ben & Woods: “We Want To Put The Best 8 Position Players Out There As Soon As Possible”
Padres Executive Chairman Ron Fowler gives a full 2019 season preview. Who does he want to see start on Opening Day? Will Fernando Tatis Jr. crack the roster or start out in Triple-A? Is Andy Green the guy to lead this team to the postseason? All that and more.
Paddack continues strong spring with sharp start – MLB
This spring, Chris Paddack is facing big league hitters for the first time in his life. It’s worth remembering that fact. Because it sure doesn’t look like it. With another dominant performance in Wednesday night’s 9-3 win over the Angels, Paddack moved into the Spring Training strikeouts lead with 20 over 12 2/3 innings. In the process, he further cemented his case to make San Diego’s rotation — if not an Opening Day start.
Myers, Padres work to make outfield work – Union Tribune
There have been increased sightings of Wil Myers, center fielder. The outfield the Padres tried to play Tuesday night was ostensibly the continuation of an experiment. It wasn’t the first time we saw Hunter Renfroe in left field and Franmil Reyes in right with Myers between them this spring.

NCAA tournament bracketology: How Saint Mary’s upset of Gonzaga alters No. 1 seeds, bubble – USA Today
The difference from February to March is significant. Saint Mary’s lost to Gonzaga by 48 points just a month ago. On Tuesday the Gaels shocked the top-seeded ‘Zags in the West Coast Conference tournament to claim the league’s automatic bid and affect the outlook of the bracket. The upset loss doesn’t move Gonzaga out of a No. 1 seed — yet. But it certainly leaves the door open for a No. 2 seed like Kentucky, Tennessee or Michigan State to steal a top seed that the ‘Zags seemed destined to secure.
Aztecs try to recapture magic and repeat history at Mountain West tournament – Union Tribune
A year ago, the Aztecs were riding the euphoria and confidence of a six-game win streak that culminated with a 79-74 win against then-No. 21 Nevada on Senior Night at Viejas Arena.
