Found October 12, 2012 on Friarhood:
Second base for the Padres in 2012 was a roller coaster to say the least. After rumors that the Padres were trying to practically give away Orlando Hudson (the Padres #3 hitter on opening day 2011), he started 2012 with the club and continued to struggle at the plate. Hudson was not a fan favorite and his effort in the field left a lot to be desired. The Padres finally grew weary of his act and cut ties with him in mid May. Enter Alexi Amarista AKA the Little Ninja. Amarista acquired in a trade with the Angels, stepped right in and held the job until June when Logan Forsythe returned from the 60-day DL. The two players platooned for the remainder of the season. As mentioned, Hudson was a hot mess and wasn’t able to bring much to the table on the field or in the clubhouse. Amarista proved to be a solid utility player taking the role away from Andy Parrino and Logan Forsythe established himself as a guy that hits LHP very well and is a solid solution at second base.

MadFriars Texas League Pitcher of the Year

Summary: Heading into the season, the Missions looked to sport one of the minors' best rotations. By mid-May, Casey Kelly, Robbie Erlin and Juan Oramas were all on the shelf, Keyvius Sampson was struggling, and the team was in a world of hurt. The Missions finished last in the division in the first half then, after surging in July, faded down the stretch and posted just a 60...

Daily Friar 10.11.12

What an exciting night for baseball fans. It's not too often you get two walkoff wins in one night, when there are only four games being played. This year seemed to be that way. There are two games that are extremely close, then the other two are blow outs. This was exactly the same case last night as the A's and the Evil Empire walked off, while the Giants and Cards had...
