But the Padres get three former first rounders in return. Seems like the NL Central just got a bit more close.

This seems like a great deal for San Diego. You get a wide swath of quality prospects, plus a guy in Volquez who gives up a lot of homers, a problem that will be partially nullified by Petco Park. Wouldn't surprise me to see Volquez deliver a very solid season for the Padres akin to what Latos did last year.

Padres got a hell of a haul. Wonder if another move is on the way as they have Alonso and Rizzo at first base. Volquez should do well pitching half his games in Petco. Grandal could be a star. Reds did well too but I love the deal for the Padres.

Actually, all but one of the home runs Volquez surrendered at home last year would have been home runs at PETCO as well. So there goes the theory that Petco will change much for Volquez...

That's an interesting stat. Do you have a link you can share that gives the distances of all his homers vs. the corresponding distances at Petco?

He or she is probably using ESPN Home Run Tracker. They say his shortest HR allowed in Great American Ballpark would have gone a park neutral 382 to right field, which is long enough to be a home run in Petco.
