Cory Spangenberg hit his 1st HR of the year, and Rymer Liriano had 4 hits... and yet the Storm still managed to lose. Not the best day to be a pitcher in the Padres' system

Padres pick doesn't play baseball

Not much is expected from a 40th round pick, but the Padres drafting Toledo QB Terrance Owens with the 1,215th pick was a surprise: Owens doesn't even play baseball.

Sleeper Alert: Andrew Cashner Slated to Start on Saturday

Hard-throwing Padres reliever Andrew Cashner is scheduled to start on Saturday against the Brewers. The 6’6″, 200 lb fireballer from Conroe, TX has a 10.0 SO/9 rate over 26 innings this season, and could be a nice streaming start for fantasy owners looking for a sleeper pitcher with high strikeout upside.

Padres activate Street from DL

The San Diego Padres activated right-handed relief pitcher Huston Street from the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday. Street was placed on the disabled list on May 5 with a strained right lat muscle. In two rehabilitation appearances for Single-A Lake Elsinore, he had a 9.00 ERA, allowing one hit (a home run) and one walk while striking out one. With the Padres...

Velocity Decline and Pitcher Attrition by Age

On May 28, the Twins released 33-year-old starter Jason Marquis. Considering how bad Twins pitchers have been this season, Marquis’ numbers stood out as being even worse. In seven starts, Marquis posted a 8.47 ERA and a 7.25 FIP, numbers driven largely by a 7.5% strikeout rate, a 27.3% HR/FB and a sky-high .352 BABIP against. There was some speculation that, since Marquis has...

Daily Friar 6.8.12

The Padres have a winning formula on their hands. They will win the first game of a series, say job well done, and forget about the other 2 or 3. At least lately that seems to be the case for them. So if that holds true then we should see a win tonight against the Brewers, right? I don't really know anymore with this team. It's sad that the one thing I am looking forward...

Cashner set to be starter No. 11 for Padres

Hours before right-hander Jason Marquis on Thursday became the 10th different pitcher to start a game for the Padres this season, manager Bud Black had already lined up No. 11. Right-hander Andrew Cashner will start for the Padres on Saturday afternoon in Milwaukee, taking Eric Stults' slot on the rotation. Stults is going on the 15-day disabled list with a strain of the latissimus...

Daily Friar 6.6.12

I'm going on record to say that last night's game was the best of the season so far. Carlos Quentin was tearing it up and was only overshadowed by Logan Forsythe and his heroic walk off home run. Everything seemed to just go right last night. Maybin with the clutch double, Quentin with the two home runs, then Forsythe with his monstrous walk off. And yes you did read that...

Daily Friar 6.7.12

The Padres should have won the game yesterday. However, too many miscues and missed opportunities led to yet another loss to add to their already terrible record. The only difference with this loss is they made things fairly competitive. That's what I am really liking about this series so far. They are not just throwing away games, but are staying in them for the most part. We...

Forget about bobbleheads. Let’s get crunk in Tucson.

The Triple-A Tucson Padres, whose attendance this year has been a little slow, have come up with a promotion that’s either genius or reckless, depending on your point of view. If you happen to live in a large house with Greek letters on the front, you probably think the Kino Krawl is super awesome. The deal: you buy a ticket for Friday’s game (cost: $15) and in addition to admission...

Padres 6, Giants 5

Logan Forsythe hit his first major league home run leading off the ninth inning to lift the San Diego Padres to a 6-5 victory against the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night. Forsythe hit a 1-0 pitch from Steve Edlefsen (0-1) into the second deck in left field. Huston Street (1-0), who came off the disabled list earlier in the day, pitched the ninth for the win, escaping a bases...

MadFriars' Farm Report June 5

It takes one amazing rally to have Yasmani Grandal score Jedd Gyorko on a home run, THE SAME INNING that Jedd Gyorko hit a grandslam! Way to go T-Pads

Friars Fail to Capitalize on San Francisco's Follies, Lose Series.

The Padres and the Giants played three exciting games, with each team getting 6-5 wins, but the Padres lack of timely hitting cost them in the error-riddled rubber game on Thursday afternoon. The Padres went an awful 2-19 with runners in scoring position, leaving 12 on base. They loaded the bases without scoring three different innings. They will fly out to Wisconsin to begin a...

MadFriars' Player of the Month: May

Matt Clark and Rymer Liriano had major bounced back in a big way in May. Lee Orr proved a lot of people wrong in Fort Wayne but May belonged to San Antonio's recently departed Music Man who took his act to Tucson.
