It will be interesting to see where Chase Headley finishes in the National League Most Valuable Player voting. The San Diego Padres third baseman won't win the award, but he should get votes. The question is how many. On Tuesday, Headley was selected the National League Player of the Month for September. He was also the NL Player of the Month for August. Over the past two months, Headley has hit .319 with 19 homers and 61 RBI. He had a .386 on-base percentage and a .633 slugging percentage. Headley, 28, hit .324 in September with nine homers, 30 RBI, a .410 on-base percentage and a .645 slugging percentage. In August, he batted .306 with 10 homers, 31 RBI, a .345 on-base percentage and a .611 slugging percentage. "I'm more proud of September than the August award because I was able to sustain what I was doing," said Headley, who has 31 homers and a league-leading 113 RBI on the season. Padres manager Bud Black said, "Teams kept pitching him tougher...

Strong 2nd half, Headley's season give Padres hope

A strong second half, fueled by Chase Headley's breakout season, showed that there's promise for the low-budget San Diego Padres. That hope was strengthened when the Oakland Athletics, who had baseball's lowest player payroll, won the AL West. Says Padres general manager Josh Byrnes: ''We want to be that team.'' The Padres, who had the second-lowest...

San Diego Padres: Chase Headley wins National League RBI crown

In what I think is one of the more incredible statistical feats in recent memory, San Diego Padres third baseman Chase Headley won the National League RBI crown on Wednesday night. While Miguel Cabrera wrapping up baseball’s first Triple Crown since 1967 will certainly grab the headlines, Headley’s accomplishment was almost equally impressive.Headley finished the season with...

Padres Complete Successful Season With Exciting Comeback Win.

In a microcosm of their season, the Padres fell behind the Brewers by six runs only to score seven unanswered to win their final game of 2012 7-6. Though they already lost the series with two close losses on Monday and Tuesday, Wednesday’s win gave the Padres plenty of reason to celebrate. Two days after being named National League Player of the Month, Chase Headley knocked in...

Padres 7, Brewers 6

Chase Headley knew he couldn't afford to lose focus in his chase of the NL RBI title - especially with Ryan Braun chasing him. Headley drove in two runs, finishing the season with a league-leading 115 RBIs, and the San Diego Padres beat the Milwaukee Brewers 7-6 on Wednesday night. ''It was on my mind, but you couldn't think about it too much,'' Headley...

Padres Brass Indicates Fences will be Moved

In a recent tweet via Bernie Wilson of the AP, it appears, it's only a matter of time until the Padres adjust the fences. div.twitterditto253938256423575554 { background: #C0DEED url(http://a0.twimg.com/images/themes/theme1/bg.png) no-repeat; padding: 20px; } div.twitterditto253938256423575554 a { color: #0084B4; } div.twitter-inner-ditto253938256423575554 { background: #fff...

Daily Friar 10.4.12

Well there you have it folks. The Padres 2012 season has come to an end. Some might not see it as a successful season, but in my eyes (and the eyes of a few others) I think it kind of was in a way. Let's start with the record. The "experts" said the Padres would only win 72 games this season, instead they won 76. Not a huge increase, but it was more than we were "...

Daily Friar 10.2.12

Last night's game was interesting to say the least. Clayton Richard looked pretty decent on the mound, minus the home runs he gave up. But they are playing in Milwaukee and any fly ball in that place will go out it seems. This includes the deep fly ball that Clayton Richard sent over the right field wall for his first career home run. It was bitter sweet in the end as his father...

Padres' on-and-off season has some bright spots

It was a season of extreme highs and lows for the San Diego Padres. During spring training, Jeff Moorad's bid to complete his $500 million "lay-away" purchase of the Padres failed when a group of major league owners moved to block the transfer. Later, majority owner John Moores successfully sold the team for $800 million to a group led by heirs to former Dodgers...

Braun looks to top Headley in NL RBI lead

Neither Chase Headley nor Ryan Braun drove in a run to begin this season-ending showdown of the NL's RBI leaders. There are two games left to decide which of these players will lead the league in that category as the visiting San Diego Padres and Milwaukee Brewers continue their series Tuesday night. Any intrigue for this set between Milwaukee (82-78) and San Diego (75-85)...

Daily Friar 10.3.12

One swing of the bat made all the difference in the game yesterday against the Brewers. Anthony Bass had a great outing minus the one miscue that happened to be a grand slam of the bat of Martin Maldonado. That happened in the third inning, which gave the Padres a ton of chances to score four runs of their own at least to tie the game up. But the offense couldn’t do that, and for...

Daily Friar 10.1.12

And that concludes Padres home games for 2012. It would have been nice to end the homestand on a high note, but I guess it just wasn't meant to be. Huston Street has not looked the same since coming back from the calf injury, and that was extremely apparent yesterday. He hadn't given up a home run all season until yesterday when he gave up two. This ultimately doomed the...
