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 National League player of the month with. He probably won't come close to winning the MVP, but he should definitely get some votes. He is second in RBIs right now in the NL, just behind Ryan Braun 100 to 98. What is more impressive with Chase's RBIs though is his 26 home runs compared to Braun's 38. Braun has 12 more homers than Chase and yet Chase is only 2 RBIs behind. Impressive to say the least.

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 Farm Round-Up: 9-6-12

The TinCaps win game 2 and advance in the playoffs due to the hot bat of Travis Jankowski- who owns a 19 game hit streak- and a powerful display by Lee Orr. Their bullpen was also stellar for the 2nd night in a row as they throw over 5 scoreless innings. The Storm were not as successful as their offense had issues with the JetHawks for the 2nd night in a row. The Storm only have...

Daily Friar 9.7.12

The Padres had a well deserved off day last night before coming home to take on the Diamondbacks. Tonight is the beer fest game, then you have your standard Saturday and Sunday games following that. So there are plenty of fun times to be had this weekend downtown at Petco park. I have a feeling that this team can beat up on the Diamondbacks and win yet another series. In fact, I...

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...
