We knew it was only a matter of time before Chase Headley was going to hit and surpass the 100 RBI mark for the season. Well yesterday he certainly did just that in “grand” fashion. The first article below will explain everything, but the Reader’s Digest version is that Chase hit a grand slam to push his home run total to 27 and his RBI total to 102. This now passes Ryan Braun for RBI leader for the National League. Pretty impressive stuff for a guy playing half his games in Petco Park, eh? The last guy to hit 100 RBIs for the Padres was, of course, Adrian Gonzalez. He did it three times for the Padres in 2007, 2008 and 2010; 2009 he got to 99 RBIs. The team record is 130 RBIs set by Ken Caminiti, and Chase has 3 weeks to hit 28 more. The way that he has been swinging the bat of late it could be possible to see that number reached.

Padres' Huston Street Set for Simulated Game

Huston Street was the best closer in baseball until his injury.  However, he's now been out since August 10th.  On the final out against the Pirates on that day, Street strained his calf covering first.  He has not tested the calf by running, but Corey Brock of MLB.com reports Street will throw a simulated game on Monday. Sounds like #Padres closer Huston Street will...

Daily Friar 9.9.12

I was hoping that the Padres would be able to pull off the sweep. However, if they were to lose one game this series it would have been this one. Let's face it, ever since Casey Kelly's debut he's been awful. Also we had to face Wade Miley who has been doing awesome for the Diamondbacks in his rookie season. If I had to vote for rookie of the year right now I would probably...

Daily Farm Round-Up: 9-10-12

The TinCaps advance in the playoffs off the strength of 15 hits and 3 home runs. Yet again, the bullpen played a crucial role in tonight’s game as the starter, James Needy, didn’t make it through 3 innings. Besides a rocky outing for Dennis O’Grady, the TinCaps pen shut the Captains down, and only allowed 4 hits and struck out 4 over 4 innings. Hitting Prospect of the Day:...

Daily Friar 9.11.12

You know the offense is having a good night when two guys on the team are one hit away from the cycle. Funny thing is each was holding the hit that the other needed. Cameron Maybin had the home run, double and single; Logan Forsythe had the triple, double, single. On top of all their offense, Chris Denorfia added 4 hits to the mix of his own. All this came against a team who is making...

Daily Friar 9.12.12

The past couple of games Chase Headley has been fairly quiet at the plate. He has been getting on base in some capacity, but he is leaving it up to the other guys on the team to do the damage and drive the runs in. That is exactly what Logan Forsythe has been doing for this team in the past couple games. He is getting men on base and driving them in to get the Padres the win any...

Daily Friar 9.8.12

Chase Headley is the savior of this team. I know I'm stating obvious facts here, but he is just on a tear right now in the latter half of the season. After the game last night the post game show was talking about his numbers from all of August compared to his numbers in the first 6 games of September. His September is on pace to be even better than his August, which he won the...
