'Scrappy' Eaton has helped Arizona in myriad ways

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...

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...
