Monday I posted the Daily Friar and said that I would be posting daily for the most part, at least as best as I could. Then Tuesday came around and I didn’t post one. As it turns out, it is very hard to post anything when there is pretty much nothing to report. Today is a different story altogether as there is some big news regarding the Padres to relay to you all. If you are attached to any of the rumors sites like I am then you probably already know everything that I will be posting. If not then this will be a first time for you and I hope that it doesn’t ruin your day. Basically, all the news that came out in the past couple of days is all bad in my eyes. Well, I shouldn’t say bad necessarily, but it isn’t all very good. It has come down to once again the management not wanting to spend money on the team, which is a shame in my eyes. I’ll let you all ponder the articles below:

We’ll be looking at the top five players in Padre history at each position. The first rule: we will only consider the players’ time with the Padres, so Mike Piazza doesn’t count because he was only here for 1 year. I have set a completely arbitrary minimum of 200 games with the Padres. The other rule: players will be considered for their primary position; so Gene Tenace...

Let’s face facts people, being a Padres fan is not easy work. Year in and year out you watch a team that is often times mediocre at best trying to battle it out and try not to land in the cellar. Every year you are promised a better season because we will find better players to help out the squad. Then the offseason comes around and none of these promises are fulfilled. It’s...
