San Diego Padres
Forget Wally World; this summer’s hottest vacation spot is Petco Park.
The Rangers head into the All-Star break in a major slump, having dropped seven of eight on their homestand. The latest defeat was a tough 2-1 loss to the Padres on Sunday.
So when you look at the roster right now, there aren’t many young, inexperienced players who have a chance to make a big impact on the Padres in 2015. One name that does come to mind, however, is pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne.
Preller, 36, has been with the Rangers organization for 10 years, and is often credited with the clubs’ international scouting success.
Not all team logos are created equal. Some teams hang onto tradition, and it works. Other teams fall flat on their faces when it comes to marketing their brand.
Sometimes a team’s best players don’t make the All-Star team. Here are the National League’s mid-season team MVPs.

Will Venable and Carlos Quentin homered, Chase Headley drove in three runs with a pair of doubles, and the Padres beat the Rangers by a score of 11-7 on Sunday afternoon.
