Found April 20, 2012 on Reading Between The Seams:
The man with the biggest theft in Fenway Park’s history won’t appear at the 100th Anniversary Celebration. According to Scott Miller of CBSSports.com, Dave Roberts will stay with his San Diego Padres and coach first base for his team rather than travel to Boston for the event. As much as Roberts would like to appear at Fenway,

Chase Headley - for real?

There is not a more remote location in the continental United States from this Maine location than San Diego. From the top of Maine to the bottom of California is about as long a diagonal line as you can draw. And suffice it to say that most of the games that are played by the San Diego Padres occur beyond this East Coaster's bedtime. So you can imagine the surprise when the...

Alonso, young Padres focused on winning

Yonder Alonso is what the San Diego Padres are all about. He is young. He is talented. And he welcomes the challenge of being a cornerstone of what the Padres hope is the start of a rejuvenation of a franchise that has been hit by ownership uncertainty, a small-market budget, and a recent drought in production from its farm system. It is a different world for Alonso than what...

Richard struggles at Coors, Padres lose 8-4

Clayton Richard struggled at Coors Field. He's pretty sure he would have been bad in any ballpark though. In 5 1-3 innings, the Padres starter yielded eight runs on 10 hits, including six doubles and two homers, and the Colorado Rockies beat San Diego 8-4 Wednesday night. ''If I was pitching in San Diego,'' Richard said, ''it would have been a bad night...

Is You Loco, Holmes??? Maybe.

They play the games for a reason. As I’ve said before I’m a “Petco Park is half full” kind of guy so I’m going to go out on a limb here and say it. The Padres are going to win three games this series against the Phillies. Am I crazy? Not certifiably, I think. But I’ve got a great feeling that we can get over that hump against a team that is not fulfilling much loftier...

Daily Friar 4.20.12

Another day, another loss for the Padres. At this rate we will be lucky to have 20 wins at the All-Star break. I hate to bash my own team, but this is getting beyond ridiculous. Joe Wieland pitched a heck of a game last night, only to not have any offense back him up (shocker). I keep hoping for something to change, but nothing does. Bud Black is too predictable and nothing will...

Daily Friar 4.19.12

I apologize in advance if the quality of this is lacking today. I am writing it way earlier than I normally do today because I am seeing the Dalai Lama speak at SDSU. Because of that I am up at 5:30 putting this together for you all to have at a decent hour. The downfall to that though is that most websites haven't written stuff for today yet. Either way I did find some stuff...

MadFriars' Farm Report April 19

The Padres are not the only players to get off to a slow start offensively. Many of the Padres' top prospects continue to hit around the Mendoza line. Despite that the 4 clubs combined for a more respectable 24 runs in 4 games (though 0 HR), and ended the night breaking even at 2-2.

Like Reed Richards Before Me, I Will Travel To...The Negative Zone.

Since my sickening optimism has wielded me nothing but heartache, I shall go opposite of my cheery self and venture into the other side. Burdened by the realities and stresses of every day life, all I wanted was a nice three hour break. And my Padres, who I adore immensely, could give that to me, right?? Wrong! I ended up listening to the Smiths for the first time in a while and...

The Phils will continue their road trip with four games in San Diego, hoping that their recent good fortune at Petco Park will continue.

After droping two straight games to the Giants, including  a 1-0 extra-innings lost in which they wasted a very good effort by Cliff Lee, the Phils will head on south to San Diego, hoping that their recent success there will continue, especially as they face the team presently with the worst record in the Majors. The Phils (5-7, 5th East) are coming off a pair of loses to the Giants...
