Padres Surge into the Wild Card Race

Don’t look now, but the Padres are now part of the conversation. After sweeping the Cardinals at home the Friars find themselves only 6.5 games out of a post-season birth. For weeks I followed, but the realist in me wouldn’t allow me to think it could happen. In all honesty, I still think it’s a long shot. The Padres only have 18 games remaining. With seven teams (Cardinals...

Friars Remain On Fire With Sweep Of World Champs.

The Padres dominance of the National League continued at Petco Park this week when they swept the defending League and World Series champion Cardinals. Logan Forsythe was outstanding over the series, getting five hits, a homer and four runs batted in, raising his average five points to .289. The Padres are now 6.5 games out of the final Wild Card spot with 18 games left on the schedule...

Padres Security Guard Ruins SportsCenter Top 10 Moment For Ball Girl

This isn’t the first time we’ve featured one of the San Diego Padres ball girls here on BC. A few weeks back, Padres ball girl Catalina made an insane catch. We’ve come to expect greatness from the Padres ball girls so this video is a real bummer. It’s a different ball girl, but she seems primed and ready to make a great catch. Enter cowardly security guard. This guy is...

Chase Headley: Exceeder of Dreams

I don’t intend to mean-spiritedly pick on the fine folks over at Baseball Prospectus, but in this instance I can’t not make a little fun. A couple excerpts from paragraphs found on Chase Headley‘s player page: I don’t think Headley is going to have more than .150 Isolated Power. Partially due to Petco, partially because he’s not that kind of hitter. (5/5/2010) That was...

Daily Friar 9.13.12

The Padres are on the verge of something special. All the articles below will point out that fact, but the Padres are definitely doing something that will be talked about a lot for the next couple weeks. There are only 18 games left in the season, 15 of those against the division. The way they are playing right now we can definitely win every series here on out and reach the .500...

Daily Friar 9.12.12

The past couple of games Chase Headley has been fairly quiet at the plate. He has been getting on base in some capacity, but he is leaving it up to the other guys on the team to do the damage and drive the runs in. That is exactly what Logan Forsythe has been doing for this team in the past couple games. He is getting men on base and driving them in to get the Padres the win any...

Daily Farm Round-Up: 9-12-12

In Game 1 of the Midwest League finals, The TinCaps fall in extras to the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers. Joe Ross made his return to Fort Wayne after going through rehab in Eugene, and performed admirably well as he struck out 5 and only allowed 2 hits over 5 innings. The TinCap bullpen that has been so rock solid in the playoffs finally faltered tonight as Luis De La Cruz walked 3 over...

The matchup tonight...
