Found April 17, 2012 on Friarhood:
Hey there. How is everyone today? Me? I’m doing fantastic because our Padres picked themselves off the ground after getting worked over by the men in blue (plus the Dodgers) and flew into Colorado to just pound the Rockies for their most complete win of the year.If our Padres have in fact used Sunday’s incident as a motivational tool, we could look back at it as the clubhouse-bonding turning-point of our first World Championship!!!Well maybe not. But all in all it was great to see the Padres bounce back in such fashion. Here’s a couple things to look for tonight. Anthony Bass is short for Anthony Badass.Our most promising righty returns to the location of his first big-league start / win. I like his mound presence and confidence. If he can pitch like he did last week, he should get his fist “W” of 2012. Hot Rod is on fire!Nick Hundley just needed that one hit to get back in the swing of things. Pun intended. After just one good game yesterday (3-4, 3 RBI) He now has a higher batting...

Alonso, young Padres focused on winning

Yonder Alonso is what the San Diego Padres are all about. He is young. He is talented. And he welcomes the challenge of being a cornerstone of what the Padres hope is the start of a rejuvenation of a franchise that has been hit by ownership uncertainty, a small-market budget, and a recent drought in production from its farm system. It is a different world for Alonso than what...

The Dodgers won 5-4 in the bottom half of the ninth. With...

Daily Friar 4.16.12

The Padres lost yet another game yesterday. The only difference is this time it wasn't entirely their own doing. After coming back against Clayton Kershaw and tieing the game up 4-4, they got screwed over by a bad call by homeplate umpire Dale Scott. I won't go into much detail here as multiple articles below delve into it. But I will say that you could put this up there...
