Padres: So let’s talk about that disastrous Blake Snell start

The San Diego Padres traded for Blake Snell thinking they were getting an ace. But that’s hardly what the left-hander and 2018 AL Cy Young winner looked like on Tuesday night in Pittsburgh. Heading into the start, the big question was whether or not he could finally get into the sixth.

Blake Snell put the finishing touches on a perfect spring Saturday, doing everything in his power to silence any doubters heading into his first season with the San Diego Padres.

Blake Snell: “I’ll probably miss being a Tampa Bay Ray forever”

Snellzilla, whose last moments with the team in live play were the much-debated early removal from Game Six of the World Series, has since spoken about that choice.

Padres: Another day, another scoreless outing from Blake Snell

It’s only spring training. But, man, I’m really digging this pattern. Padres starting pitchers have been lights-out all spring long and Blake Snell has been no exception. The left-hander kept things rolling on Monday, tossing three scoreless frames against the Milwaukee Brewers. Across three Cactus League outings, he’s allowed just two hits in six innings […] Padres: Another day, another scoreless outing from Blake Snell - Friars on Base - Friars on Base - A San Diego Padres Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More
