Found June 12, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera will be in the lineup Tuesday in Seattle after Glendale, Ariz., prosecutors on Monday abruptly dismissed domestic charges against the player stemming from an incident during spring training. Cabrera, 25, flew from Milwaukee to Arizona late Sunday night to appear in court Monday morning while his teammates were enjoying a day off in Seattle. "We were ready to proceed to trial, but they (the prosecutors) wanted to dismiss," said Richard Suzuki, Cabrera's attorney. "It lasted five minutes or so." The charge was dismissed "without prejudice," meaning the case against him could be refiled at some point by next March. That doesn't appear likely, however. Suzuki speculated that the case was dropped because of "discrepancies about what happened that night (March 16)." Cabrera was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault in Glendale, about five miles from the Padres' spring training home in Peori...

Thoughts on the Padres draft

Once the annual MLB amateur draft is completed you can expect every team to speak glowingly of the crop of players they chose that year. If each club’s evaluators were to be believed, their staff likely just selected several players who will one day suit up for multiple All-Star games, who might just win major awards and perhaps even gain entry to the MLB Hall of Fame. That frame...

Vedder Cup!!! Vedder Cup!!! Vedder Cup!!!

The Padres are a whopping 19 games out of first place and 21 games below .500. One would say this season is lost and there would be nothing to look forward to. But those that think that do not realize that the Padres are a mere four wins away from being champions; Vedder Cup Champions. That’s right the Padres traveled to Seattle to start a series against their loathed “natural...

Padres Launch Furious Comeback But Ultimately Lose Series Looking.

The Brewers and Padres played a tough series that went down to a bases-loaded full count in the top of the ninth before the Padres lost the game and the series on a called strike three. Milwaukee blew out the Friars in the first game before the Padres came from behind and won on Saturday. Sunday’s rubber match was a tale of three games as the Padres dominated the first half, only...

Tony Gwynn Wants To Buy Padres, Not Pay Taxes

Tony Gwynn was the ideal franchise player. He spent his entire career with the San Diego Padres, slash lined .338/.388/.459 and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2007. Plus he had those chubby cheeks that your grandma was just dying to squeeze. While Gwynn never finished higher than third in MVP voting (1984), he was the last guy to seriously flirt with .400 when he hit .394...

Sweden looks for answers after loss to Ukraine

Like many Ukrainians, Sweden coach Erik Hamren was up for most of the night following his team's 2-1 loss to the co-host at the European Championship. While the home supporters were celebrating in Kiev, Hamren was sitting at the team hotel watching video footage of the game until 4:30 a.m. and trying to pinpoint where things went wrong. With a must-win game against England coming...

Padres 5, Mariners 4

Clayton Richards pitched seven strong innings, Everth Cabrera had an RBI triple in a four-run sixth and the San Diego Padres hung on for a 5-4 win over the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday night. Seattle starter Felix Hernandez (4-5) foundered in his first outing in 11 days. The 2010 Cy Young Award winner pitched six innings, allowing nine hits, five runs and three walks. The Mariners...

Daily Friar 6.12.12

In the world of baseball every team has a few rivals. For the Padres we have the Dodgers and the Giants (as well as the Rockies and DBacks to a lesser extent in my eyes). In the playoffs we have the Cardinals (since we got beat by them twice in a row). And in interleague play we have the Seattle Mariners. This is based solely on geography, but it's a fun little rival that we...

Source: Three bidders for Padres left

The sale of the San Diego Padres is gaining momentum. Three bidders remain, and Padres owner John Moores expects to select a buyer between Wednesday and Friday of next week, according to a source close to the sales process. A group led by former Dodgers owner Peter O'Malley is one of the finalists, and the other two bidders also are from southern California, the source said...

Daily Friar 6.11.12

Another series lost by the Padres. This time though we didn't just lay down and give the Brewers the win. We fought back hard and ultimately lost because John Baker couldn't figure out how to get the bat off his shoulder. If he had gone down swinging the loss would have hurt, but less so then it does that he went down looking. Also I want to know who the schdule makers are...

AP source: Tull not among finalists to buy Padres

A person familiar with the sale process says Hollywood mogul Thomas Tull has been told his group is not among the finalists to buy the San Diego Padres. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Tuesday because of the sensitivity of the negotiations. The person says ''several'' groups remain in the bidding to buy the Padres, who went into...

MadFriars' 2012 San Antonio Notebook

SAN ANTONIO -- Last year the San Antonio Missions won their twelfth Texas League Championship behind top prospects 3B James Darnell, CF Blake Tekotte and RHP Casey Kelly.

Daily Friar 6.13.12

The battle for the non existent Vedder Cup is off to the right track for the Padres. They (barely) won last night, beating King Felix in the process. So this team has defeated Felix Hernandez, Roy Halliday (twice), and Stephen Strasburg. Yet, we are still 20 games under .500? This game is so weird how it works out sometimes. The sad part is that we are losing to mediocre pitchers...
