There are some enticing pieces to share with you all today. Padres have claimed a new pitcher, who has some decent stuff (just not the greatest numbers). Also we have more news on which television companies will be carrying Padres games (spoiler alert: Time Warner is still out). Also we have a disgruntled fan taking to social media, some questions that need to be answered, and a...
In one of the most interesting signings of the winter, the Washington
Nationals have signed Micah Owings to a minor league contract, with an
invitation to major league camp. Owings missed most of 2012 with an elbow
injury, but his projected comeback from that procedure is not what makes this
deal different. Despite sporting a lifetime won-lost record of 32-33,
If you are attending Padres Fanfest this weekend you are in for a ton of fun, but it doesn’t stop there. We at Friarhood wanted to have a little fun ourselves, so we set up a Friarhood Scavenger Hunt! This is all going to go down on twitter, so if you don’t have a twitter account, now is the time to get one. Make sure you follow @Friarhood (that’s us).

That still doesn’t change my stance on bringing back Matt Vasgersian though (SANTA MARIA...

Death, taxes, and Mike Rizzo signing a player he drafted with the Diamondbacks to a minor league deal.
This time, it's Micah Owings, who converted from pitcher to position player last season. Now Owings has an invitation to big league camp with the Nats.
Just based on the video above, in which Owings walked Jayson Werth with the bases loaded in a game in San Diego last April...
Jim Bowden had an article at ESPN talking about how the San Diego Padres should trade Chase Headley right now. In the article he listed the Pittsburgh Pirates as one of two teams with a moderate chance of landing Headley, noting that a package of Gregory Polanco and Alen Hanson could get the deal done.
Bowden does a lot of these types of articles. He takes a player who isn’t necessarily...
