Found August 30, 2012 on Fangraphs:
Overlord Dave and I exchange a lot of emails, and earlier Thursday he sent me an email declaring that everybody’s talking about the Padres. I chuckled heartily to myself, as Dave is one of the funniest people I know. The Padres are about as forgettable a franchise as any in the major professional...

Padres Win Third Straight Series, Beating Braves Two Out Of Three Games.

Though their season high eight game win streak came to an end on Tuesday; the Padres bookended that loss with a pair of wins over the Atlanta Braves, winning their third straight series. The series clincher on Wednesday was their ninth victory in their last 10 games. Yasmani Grandal knocked in all three runs on Monday and also had an RBI Wednesday, earning Friarhood player of the...

Mickelson's Padres title still 'fan'

PGA Tour star Phil Mickelson has talked excitedly about joining his hometown San Diego Padres as a minority owner. But as the team's new ownership group took control this week, Lefty was left out. Mickelson was prominently absent on the list of investors revealed Wednesday upon the close of the sale by former owner John Moores. Instead, it was San Diego businessman Ron Fowler...

Daily Friar 8.29.12

As the old cliche goes, all good things must come to an end. Thus the Padres ran into a road block in their win streak last night. Even though Andrew Werner pitched awesome again last night, he was stuck with the tough luck loss. The tough luck was the fact that he had to go up against Kris Medlen who has been nothing short of outstanding lately. I'm hoping that Werner doesn...

Braves struggle to score runs against Padres

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- With their new owners watching, Chase Headley and the San Diego Padres beat the Atlanta Braves 8-2 Wednesday for their ninth win in 10 games. Headley hit a two-run single and left-hander Eric Stults won his fourth straight decision as the Padres took two of three from the Braves, who lead the NL wild-card race.

Padres' new owners stress community spirit

A day after their purchase of the San Diego Padres from John Moores closed, the new owners met the press and the players at Petco Park before the Padres' 8-2 win over the Braves. Led by members of two families that trace their baseball heritage to former Dodgers owners Walter and Peter O'Malley plus San Diego business and civic leader Ron Fowler, the new group spoke about...

Daily Friar 8.30.12

I forgot that yesterday's game was an afternoon game until I went to turn the TV on at 7 and found out that there was no game to be seen. So I completely missed the fact that our Padres whooped the Braves to win yet another series. This is the 3rd series in a row they have won, and are now 9-1 in their past 10 games. Let's look at some numbers shall we? In the month of August...

Padres Improving But Many Fans Can’t Watch On TV

Yesterday Jeff Sullivan wrote about the San Diego Padres. If you haven’t read Jeff’s post, go read it now. I’ll wait. Okay, so now you know that since June 10, the Padres have a record of 41-30 and have outscored their opponents by 32 runs. But that’s not all. The Padres are 9-1 in their last 10 games, 13-7 in their last 20, and 18-12 in their last 30. They are outplaying...

Padres-Rockies Preview

It's almost certainly too late for the San Diego Padres and Colorado Rockies to make the postseason, but neither team is playing like they believe that. The Padres and Rockies, the bottom two teams in the NL West, open a three-game series at Coors Field on Friday night in a matchup of surging clubs. San Diego (61-71) won for the ninth time in 10 games Wednesday, 8-2 over wild...

Free Chase Headley!

In baseball, and I guess life itself,  it is always fun to play the “What if..” game. Always! What if Miguel Cabrera played for a contender, but in a hitter’s park? What if Bud Norris could pitch nearly as well on the road as he does at home? What if Tim McCarver enlightened people with his thoughts and insights? See? It’s a fun game, right? That’s rhetorical folks...
