Found June 14, 2012 on Philliedelphia:
Photo: kpslonline.com Pedro Feliz, the 37-year old third baseman who helped the Phillies win their World Series in 2008, is back in the Delaware Valley for a second time and he'll be across the river. For the second time in his career, Feliz will be playing third base for the Camden Riversharks of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, an independent professional baseball league. Feliz is returning to the team after failing to make the major league roster with the San Diego Padres. Feliz played for the Phillies in 2008 and 2009 and was a key member of their World Series and NL Champion teams. Feliz was released after the 2009 season and was replaced with Placido Polanco. Both have stellar gloves, but boy did Pedro Feliz have a cannon.  Although Feliz could never play in the majors again, staying in the same area that he won a World Series in could help bring in support and fans for the Riversharks.

Could Carlos Quentin be a Red soon?

It's that time of year again, rumor season The trade deadline is still over a month and a half away, but that doesn't necessarily mean teams aren't looking around the league in search for potential help.

Mirror, Mirror: Similar Squads Square Off

The Oakland A's and the San Diego Padres are the identical Lane cousins of baseball. They may play in separate leagues, but they look awfully similar. Both teams feature rosters in transition and have instability with their ownership situations. Both have struggled on offense this season and are well under .500. And both are coming off of three-game sweeps. Chris Biderman previews...

Daily Friar 6.14.12

So I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that the Padres won the game last night. And in doing so have also won the series, and are going for the sweep today. The pitching was spot on (though not as spot on as Matt Cain was last night) and got the job done. The bad news is that our RISP hitting is still having issues. Case in point was the 9th inning we had bases...

With Padres Sale on the Cusp, Could Steven Cohen Land the Team?

The long and winding road that is the sale of the San Diego Padres appears to be close to ending. According to sources, the sale could be completed as early as next week. The bigger question is, who will wind up being the owner? There have been some rumblings that hedge-fund magnate Steven Cohen could be that guy. Cohen is currently a minority owner in the New York Mets and reportedly...

Daily Friar 6.15.12

There is a word that I haven't been able to use yet all season, and that is SWEEP! As of last night the Padres have swept their first series of the season. It came against our natural rival the Seattle Mariners, and we are now one step closer to claiming the Vedder cup as ours for this season. It's so nice to see the team winning and having fun doing it. Putting up crooked...

Daily Friar 6.13.12

The battle for the non existent Vedder Cup is off to the right track for the Padres. They (barely) won last night, beating King Felix in the process. So this team has defeated Felix Hernandez, Roy Halliday (twice), and Stephen Strasburg. Yet, we are still 20 games under .500? This game is so weird how it works out sometimes. The sad part is that we are losing to mediocre pitchers...
