PLAYERS: Jack Murphy
TEAMS: San Diego Padres
Padres off days are always long. I personally don't watch a lot of TV to begin with, but when I do it's usually because the Padres are playing. When I have it on I will mute it and do other things like read or something along those lines. Last night I didn't get to have that option with the off day. It feels like the Padres haven't been playing for a few days with the afternoon get away game on Wednesday. But now the team is on the road and will be playing 13 games before their next off day. This does include coming back home for a six game homestand. First up is three games in Pittsburgh, followed by 4 games against the Braves in Atlanta. Then we head home (without a day off) to take on the Giants and the Pirates. Notice how all those teams are making a playoff run? Yeah these games could be very interesting.

Five Good Things: Padres at Pirates 8/11/12

Jason Marquis – Complete game, two-hitter is one thing, but Jason also collected two hits himself. With the win tonight, he improves to 5-1 since the all-star break Chase Headley – Another day, another homerun. Headley tied a club record with a HR in three straight at bats. He now has 10 HRs and 28 RBI since the break Will Venable – A solo HR (7) tonight along with a single...

San Diego Padres refuse to hire an angry b*itch

After 30 job application rejection letters, and a seemingly heartless invitation to purchase a $500 job fair ticket, Taylor Grey Meyer decided to write a F*ck You letter to the Padres organization that has now gone viral. Meyer, 31, lists her extensive credentials that do seem to qualify her for a position in the letter,

Daily Farm Round-Up: 8-10-12

It was a good night to be starting pitcher. Matt Palmer turned in the worst start out of all of the Padres’ minor league starters, and he allowed just 2 earned runs and pitched into the 6th. Casey Kelly continued his rehab as he shut the Springfield Cardinals down. Every minor league affiliate won tonight besides the T-Pads thanks in large part to all of the strong pitching performances...

Padres' Street appears headed to disabled list with calf strain

Friday should have been remembered as a great night for the San Diego Padres. Third baseman Chase Headley homered from both sides of the plate as the Padres rallied from their biggest deficit of the season to defeat Pittsburgh 9-8 for their 10th straight win at PNC Park in Pittsburgh. But closer Huston Street pulled up lame on the game's final play as his 21st straight save...

Exploring the Arsenal – Jason Marquis

Exploring the Arsenal will run prior to each game, providing you with a brief scouting report on the starting pitcher expected to oppose the Pirates. The chart below shows the horizontal and vertical movement of every pitch thrown by that particular pitcher in 2012. This chart is from the catcher’s point of view.

Padres not throwing in the towel, but throwing money around

Last Monday, the Padres were officially sold ... we think. The sale to a group that headed by the heirs to the O'Malley family of Dodger fame, professional golfer Phil Mickelson and San Diego businessman/civic leader Ron Fowler is final pending the approval of the other major league owners, a vote that could come as early as next Thursday. But the new Padres' ownership...

MadFriars' Player of the Month: July

In Tucson Jedd Gyorko continues to produce and Nate Freiman is nothing but steady in San Antonio. Tommy Medica is opening some eyes for the Storm and Kyle Gaedele is starting to show some of the tools that got him drafted. In short-season ball some late round draft picks are opening some eyes.

Padres 9, Pirates 8

Chase Headley homered from both sides of the plate for the first time in his career and drove in five runs to rally the San Diego Padres to a 9-8 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night. Headley hit a three-run home run to cap a six-run fifth inning that tied the game 7-7. His two-run blast in the seventh put San Diego ahead 9-8 after Rod Barajas had hit an RBI single...

Padres 5, Pirates 0

Jason Marquis took a no-hitter into the seventh inning Saturday night before settling for a two-hitter as the San Diego Padres beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-0. Travis Snider broke up the bid with an infield single off the pitcher's mound leading off the seventh inning. Second baseman Alexi Amarista dived to his right but the ball glanced off his glove. Released earlier this...

Daily Friar 8.11.12

Let's take a minute and talk about prospects. They are supposed to be the next stars of your team and help your team make it to the promise land. However, let's get one thing clear, prospects can always go either way once they hit the majors. Obviously you want your guy to be crushing it in the minors and then continue to do so in the majors. Manny Machado of the Orioles...

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. San Diego Padres – Game 113

I put last night’s game mostly on Hurdle.  McDonald shouldn’t have pitched in his last game, let alone this game, and you can see why.  He clearly needs to get things together, outside of the rotation.  That is 100% Clint Hurdle’s fault. Clint Hurdle should have taken McDonald out before the damage was done.  He [...]

Pittsburgh Pirates vs San Diego Padres – Game 112

First and foremost……. That felt good. What’s not good is the Padres.  They kind of suck.  In fact, on the road.  Only one National League team has more road losses than the Padres.  The Pirates need to sweep this series.  Anything less is a loss in my opinion. First Pitch:  7:05 PM EST Where ti [...]

Padres-Pirates Preview

Based on how they've performed at PNC Park coupled with San Diego's play on the road, the Pittsburgh Pirates should be able to end their lengthy home losing streak to the Padres. Of course, if scheduled starter James McDonald's struggles continue, another defeat could be imminent. McDonald again hopes to break out of his second-half funk and help the Pirates avoid losing...

Marquis mows down Bucs

The Pirates had a horrendous night on Saturday, as they managed just two singles and dropped their third game in a row–this one by a 5-0 score to the Padres. A.J. Burnett did not deliver the ace/stopper performance we were hoping for. He had one of his worst outings at home, allowing a homer in the first inning (Chase Headley AGAIN) and five runs (four earned) in less than six...
