The 2012 San Diego Padres: Epitome of Boring Baseball

In past years the Padres have been accused of playing “boring” baseball. The primary rationale behind this unflattering characterization was the lack of scoring in games involving the Friars. Perhaps some fans disapprove of low scoring baseball but not necessarily this guy. I can get behind a clean, well-played, 2 – 1 loss as easily as I can with coming up on the short end...

Suppan thriving, happy to be back in majors

Jeff Suppan says he is concentrating on the now and not caught up in the resurrection of his career. Right. "He's relishing every moment," Padres manager Bud Black said of Suppan Sunday afternoon after the 37-year-old right-hander suffered the first loss in his impressive comeback. After three starts with the Padres, Suppan is 2-1 with a 1.69 ERA. He dropped a 3...

Padres Splits Short Series In Nation's Capital.

Will Venable also went 4-5, raising his average to .280 in Tuesday’s victory.The Padres will head home to San Diego for a brief two...

Padres reinstate Stauffer from disabled list

The San Diego Padres reinstated pitcher Tim Stauffer from the disabled list, clearing the way for the 29-year old pitcher to make his season debut Monday night against the Washington Nationals. Stauffer began the season on the disabled list after straining his right elbow late in spring training. He made a rehab start last Wednesday with Triple-A Tucson, giving up one run in five...

Padres' Bass gets results by throwing fewer pitches

Padres right-hander Anthony Bass outdueled Stephen Strasburg on Tuesday at Nationals Park to continue his evolution as a starting pitcher. Not only did the Padres defeat Strasburg with the bat, but Bass outpitched the former San Diego State All-American, allowing one run -- Bryce Harper's second major league homer in as many game -- on five hits in his second eight-inning effort...

Daily Friar 5.14.12

Once again the Padres had a chance to take a series during the rubber game. And once again the team failed to do so. Also, stop me if you've heard this before, the pitching was outstanding but the offense couldn't score enough runs. I'm surprised the Padres even have a team. We can attract pitchers to the team because of Petco. But why would a star pitcher want to stay...

Bass evolution continues in win vs. Strasburg

Padres right-hander Anthony Bass outdueled Stephen Strasburg on Tuesday at Nationals Park to continue his evolution as a starting pitcher.

MadFriars' Farm Report May 14

Logan Forsythe and Jonathan Galvez see their first live action of the year. Possibly just as exciting was the combined efforts of the three starters in the three minor league games. Jorge Reyes, Keyvius Sampson, and Adys Portillo combined for 19 IP, 12 H, 1 ER, 8 BB, 14 K. Although, sadly, only one got the win.

Friars Fight Back But Utimately Fall To Phillies, Losing Series in Rubber Game.

After getting blown out in the first game, the Padres fought back and won beat one of the best pitchers in baseball to tie the series Saturday. But San Diego native and nemesis Cole Hamels pitched well enough in the rubber game to give the Phillies another series win over San Diego. The Padres saw a couple streaks end on Sunday when Jeff Suppan lost after winning his first two starts...

Daily Friar 5.15.12

Stop me if I have said this before: The Padres lost again last night. The offense picked it up, but it was the pitching that failed them this time. More offense is what we're supposed to look forward to when we hit the road. And last night with 5 runs the offense was there. But the pitching staff gave up 3 homeruns. They are playing right now facing Stephen Strasburg. We'...

The Phils’ offense spoil another good pitching performance by their ace as they lose to the Padres, 2-1.

The Phils’ offense once again spoil another good start by Roy Halladay as they drop a close one to the Padres, 1-0. The Phils took the lead in the second as, with one man on, and with one man out, Freddy Galvis hits an RBI double, scoring John Mayberry, Jr., who had earlier doubled, givjng the Phils a 1-0 lead. The Padres tied the game up at one-all in the third as, with one...

Stephen Strasburg left after only four innings Tuesday, matching the second-shortest appearance of his 25-start career, and San Diego's Will Venable had four hits, while John Baker delivered three hits and three RBIs, leading the Padres to a 6-1 victory over the Washington Nationals. Anthony Bass (2-4) - making his 10th start in the majors - tied his longest outing by going...

Daily Friar 5.13.12

Happy mothers day to all the mothers out there! The Padres are taking on the Phillies today in a rubber match. The last time the Padres faced the Phillies they came out with a series tie. Let's hope that after today we can be talking about a series win! A lot of players will be using the traditional pink bats for todays game, so we'll see if those bring some life to the Padres...

The First of Many

I saw Bryce Harper’s first MLB home run live. He said to Tim Stauffer “I hope you’re ready to fly, because you’re leaving the yard with me,” and then hit a majestic gun-shot blast over the center field wall. It was everything you would have pictured the kid’s first home run to be. If you missed it, it’s okay. It’s captured forever here for you to enjoy. And I wouldn’t...
