I think we may have watched one of the most frustrating Padres games last night. The Astros are a terrible team plain and simple. Yes I know the Padres are bad too, but this is a team that we should be beating easily. And yet we couldn't string together the hits to get anyone across to score. Another game with an 0'fer in the RISP numbers. It saddens me that we can out hit the other team, and yet not be able to score a measily little run. Or maybe this is falling right into the Padres' plans, let them win the first game and then we'll show them what we are really made of. Just like the Dodgers series before this allowing them to win 6-0, then slaughtering them the next two games. Hopefully we can pull off a win tonight.

Daily Friar 7.18.12

It's always easier to write this after the Padres win. Which is exactly what they did last night after beating up on the Astros. It appears that the Padres are putting the formula to work of getting shut out the first game then pounding the opposing team into the ground after that. Last night's win came in the form of timely and productive hitting. The team went 5-9 with...

Daily Friar 7.16.12

The Padres are starting their second half campaign on the right foot. We know that the playoffs are essentially out of the question for this club. That is unless they go on a Herculean, Colorado Rockies run and make it in on the last day of the season. So our role now is to play spoliers to the teams that we have grown to hate. The Dodgers were the first to feel this wrath as the...
