Quentin Stays In San Diego

The Padres aren’t going anywhere this season but that doesn’t automatically qualify the 41-56 club as deadline sellers. While Carlos Quentin, Chase Headley and Huston Street have attracted plenty of attention on the trade market, general manager Josh Byrnes has approached the deadline in a rather conservative manner. With a new ownership group set to take over, it remained unclear...

Padres Roll Over Rockies To Win Their Third Straight Series.

The Padres won a pitcher’s duel on Sunday to take the series after splitting two high scoring contests on Friday and Saturday. The series win placed the Friars at 7-3 since the all-start break and 41-56 overall. Before the game the Padres extended cleanup hitter Carlos Quentin through 2015, uncharacteristically locking up a valuable trade commodity before the deadline. The move...

Deadline Trade Candidate - Clayton Richard

With less than 10 days remaining before the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline passes few deals of any real significance have been made. There are a few factors contributing to the relative absence of activity so far. The newly created Wild Card in each league was intended to keep more clubs in contention longer, which has been the case, but because teams winning a Wild Card are...

The deal is worth $27 million, according to It has incentive clauses that could escalate the deal to $30 million.

Carlos Quentin Locked Up – Why?

In 2008, Carlos Quentin had an MVP caliber season for the AL Central Division Champion White Sox. Actually, he probably would’ve won the thing if he played the last month of the season; Quentin hit .288/.394/.571 with 36 home runs and 100 RBI in just 130 games before a temper-induced wrist injury ended his year prematurely. This year – four years later, for those of you keeping...

Padres' Quentin signs three-year extension

Quentin, who made $7.025 million this season, will make $9.5 million in 2013 and 2014 and $8 million in 2015 with a mutual option for $10 million in 2016. If he plays a total...

Daily Friar 7.24.12

So that's what it feels like to lose a game, and badly. It's been a while since the Padres lost that bad to a team, and looked terrible doing it. It is pretty obvious to state that Clayton Richard was nowhere near the Clayton we have seen recently. Much more wild than he has been in the past, and that cost us in the first inning. I was watching that first inning just waiting...

Padres 3, Rockies 2

Will Venable drove in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning and Everth Cabrera had two hits and scored twice as the San Diego Padres beat the Colorado Rockies 3-2 on Sunday. Dale Thayer (2-2) pitched 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief to earn the victory for the Padres, who have won seven of nine and three straight series for the first time this season.

Daily Friar 7.22.12

As the game went on last night one couldn't help but be reminded of the 22 inning affair that took place a couple years ago. The Padres and Rockies were battling it out all night in what was a pretty good game all around. The only bad thing about it was Kip Wells and his 4th inning, and the fact that it took us 12 innings to just lose the game. As a Padres fan it was disheartening...
