Found May 05, 2012 on Friarhood:
It's rare that I go to a concert during baseball season, leave, get home, and still am able to catch two innings of a Padres game. That just so happened last night. I was downtown, but I was at the House of Blues. I got home at 11:15, turned the TV on and then saw the ending that ultimately came in the 12th. Considering how we had no bench players and no bullpen arms left the game mercifully ended when it did. Would I have liked to win, yes. However, at that point you were hoping either team would make a push to get it over with and the Marlins did just that.

Ring around the relievers

To describe the past week as an eventful one for the Friars bullpen bunch would qualify as an extreme understatement. The Padres welcomed two new faces to their relief corps while saying goodbye to two others; one of those presumably for good. With the club dealing RH reliever Ernesto Frieri to the Angels and closer Huston Street hitting the DL with a strained lat muscle, the Friars...

Friars Filleted By Fish In Three Game Sweep

The Miami Marlins continued their winning ways as they swept the Padres in San Diego over the weekend. Their sixth straight win included a series sweep in San Francisco before taking three from the Padres. The Padres failed to hold leads in two of the three games as their record dropped t0 9-20. They will look to rebound against the Rockies in a three game series that starts Monday...

Daily Friar 5.4.12

The Padres had an off day yesterday, but that didn't meant they stayed quiet. The trade market was all a buzz yesterday as the Padres made a move with the Angels. I won't spoil anything here if you haven't read about it yet, but the article is below on who was moved. Most of the team was busy yesterday as well getting out in the community, which is always a great thing...

Marlins try to sweep road series vs. Padres

With their bullpen in flux, the Miami Marlins could use some more help from their starting rotation. The San Diego Padres can relate. The Marlins look to complete a three-game sweep of the San Diego Padres and extend their longest winning streak of the season to six Sunday in a matchup of teams currently without clearly-defined closers. Miami relievers threw a combined 28 2-3...

Angels acquire Ernesto Frieri, finally get Bullpen of Perpetual Sorrow some help

What Jerry Dipoto wants, Jerry Dipoto gets.  As if the Pujols and Wilson signings didn't show us that already, the Angels GM went out and proved it once more by acquiring young, talented power reliever Ernesto Frieri from the San Diego Padres in order to bolster the Angels Bullpen of Perpetual Sorrow. While one reliever isn't going to fix the bullpen, Frieri is a major...

Future Shock Blog: Minor League Update: Games of May 3 by Kevin Goldstein

Adys Portillo, RHP, Padres (Low-A Fort Wayne): 7 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K. Portillo was one of the top international signings four years ago, but he's become all but forgotten, mostly because he's just never pitched well for an extended period of time. He's also still only 20 years old and has one of the best arms in the system. Sitting in the mid-90s with an explosive...

Good morning all! Hope you are all doing well after one of our many national days to drink. Here's to hoping your hangover isn't that bad.

I thought May would turn us around, but so far it hasn&...

A season already off to a tough start might get even tougher if what Bill Center is reporting comes to fruition.

The injury might require Tommy John surgery to repair and would need at least a year to successfully rehab. Luebke...
