Found April 14, 2012 on Friarhood:
I was in LA last night. Not for the game, but for a concert. I was however following the game on my phone and I was impressed that I saw a number higher than 2 next to the Padres. I was then impressed that we were able to tie the game up when it came to the 9th inning. Then all hell broke loose. It is sad how the Dodgers won that game. They didn't even have to put up a fight in the end. Anyways, Joe Wieland will be making his MLB debut tonight. Should be fun to watch. Also I hope that you are enjoying the one year anniversary of Friarhood Radio.

Top 5 second basemen in Padres History

During the 2012 season 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...

Man in reporters' booth snags foul ball

A man in the front row of the reporters booth behind home plate at Petco Park caught a foul ball Tuesday night as the San Diego Padres hosted the Arizona Diamondbacks. Your browser does not support iframes. It happened in the top of the fourth inning as Diamondbacks third baseman Ryan Roberts hit a high foul ball behind home plate. The man, with an MLB.com laptop, stood up to...

Road, Sweep Road: Friars Fall In Rough Fashion at Chavez Ravine

After dropping the first two, the Padres were hoping to take one from the Dodgers on Sunday, but a call shrouded in controversy might have prevented them from doing so. Looking to put two runs in scoring position with a sac bunt, Jesus Guzman bunted the ball foul. Or so was the initial call by home plate umpire Dale Scott. But after the Dodgers whipped the ball around the infield...

Daily Friar 4.15.12

What can I say about this Padres team? They are looking lousy, that about sums up everything. After scoring 8 runs Friday night and putting up a reasonable fight, they only put up 1 run on 2 hits last night. I wonder if the ball was on a tee would our guys be able to hit it? Again I saw way too many pitches being taken right down the middle. But they were swinging away at pitches...

Dodgers turn triple play in 9th against Padres

The Los Angeles Dodgers have turned a triple play in the ninth inning of their game against the San Diego Padres. The bizarre play came with the score tied 4-all Sunday. Chris Denorfia led off with a single against Javy Guerra. Chase Headley walked and Jesus Guzman squared to bunt the runners over, but the pitch came high and tight and hit Guzman's bat as he backed up from...

Padres Prospects: Make or Break

It can be considered a make or break year for several San Diego Padres prospects. There is a relation between age and prospect status, as well as the time given to a prospect before the organization begins to sour on their “potential”. MadFriars.com looks at one position player and one pitcher from each full-season level.

Daily Friar 4.13.12

The Padres' homestand didn't go as planned. They dropped the rubber match last night against the Diamondbacks and went 2-5 to start the season. They hit the road this weekend starting a series with the Dodgers. Hopefully (and I have been using this word a lot lately) they will be able to break out of this funk while on the road. We get to face Aaron Harang, who we did well...
