Found March 05, 2013 on Friarhood:
The Padres played a pretty decent game yesterday against the Rangers. All things considered they held their own against a Rangers lineup that featured their top bats. The game was lost in the bottom of the ninth on a walk off hit into right field. Again it’s spring where nothing matters except personal performance, so it was nice to see a great game from two players specifically. Eric Stults pitched well, and is solidifying his spot in the rotation. Kyle Blanks also had a great game at the plate which you can read all about in the articles below: Submit articles and follow me on twitter Follow @M_Rennick Kyle Blanks homers in loss to Rangers – Padres.com “After getting the Padres on the board with a solo homer in the fifth, Kyle Blanks put the Padres ahead 3-2 in the seventh with a sacrifice fly, one of three runs for the Padres in the inning.” Increasing frustration from players could lead to harsher PED penalties – CBS Sports “Cuddyer was echoing the same thing the Cardinals’ Mat...

MadFriars' Top 20 Players for 2013

The Padres enter 2013 with a relatively strong farm system, though much of the promise, particularly with pitching, is still a few years down the road. Most publications and websites have been fairly unanimous in grouping six players atop San Diego's farm system. Jedd Gyorko, Casey Kelly and Robbie Erlin are near the top for those that want a greater level of certainty, while...

Padres 4, White Sox 0

Jake Peavy and Clayton Richard will always be linked as the key pieces of a trade between the San Diego Padres and Chicago White Sox. The two pitchers faced off Sunday, their first starts of spring training. Richard pitched two scoreless innings, leading the Padres to a 4-0 win over the White Sox. Peavy was hit hard, giving up three runs and five hits. Peavy yielded RBI doubles...

Daily Friar 3.4.13

Yesterday was the first game of spring to be televised on Fox Sports San Diego this season. Today will be the second game televised against the Rangers. Yesterday the Padres beat the White Sox in what I would say was a very well played game by the squad. Great pitching performances as well as excellent hitting from most of the guys. The interesting thing to note from the game was...

Three for the Show: Center Fielders

This is the seventh (getting there) in a ten-part series where I will identify the top three players at each position in the Padres’ minor league system. Up next: Center Field. The first name that probably comes to the mind of most folks when it comes to pure center fielders is 21-year old Reymond Fuentes. The speedy outfielder has stolen 120 bases in the past three seasons. He’s...

Daily Friar 3.6.13

How sweet is it to beat up on the Dodgers? I know it’s only spring, but any chance that we get to beat them is, to quote Mark Grant, “some kinda nice!” The other nice part about it is that the Padres were teeing off on Clayton Kershaw, who pitched three innings allowing 7 hits, 4 runs (all earned) and only struck out 2. Two of those runs came off the bat of Nick Hundley who...

Video: Dick Enberg calls a flyout as a home run

The tenure of Dick Enberg as the play by play announcer for the San Diego Padres has been oddly enjoyable. Entering his fourth year calling Padres games (now on Fox Sports San Diego), the 78-year old Enberg has provided a recognizable voice to telecasts featuring a largely unrecognizable and unremarkable team. During the first inning of Monday's Padres-Rangers Spring Training...
