Found August 15, 2013 on Fox Sports:
The San Diego Padres have placed catcher Nick Hundley on paternity leave and called up catcher Chris Robinson from Triple-A Tucson. The Padres also transferred right-hander Jason Marquis from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list Thursday. Hundley, expecting the birth of his first child with wife Amy, is hitting .231 in 82 games this season with a career high-tying nine home runs and 29 RBIs. The 29-year-old Robinson will be making his first trip to the majors. He was batting .298 with 12 RBIs in 29 games with Tucson following his acquisition in a June 20 trade with Baltimore. Marquis underwent season-ending Tommy John surgery on July 30.

Tucson Padres’ Cody Decker Presents: “Brad.”

Look out Hollywood, there’s a new star on the rise and he’s coming out of Tucson. The Tucson Padres’ own self-proclaimed anti-hero and writer/director/producer/actor Cody Decker (who also plays outfield for the Triple-A club) has put together a new short film entitled “Brad” starring himself and several members of the Padres clubhouse staff down in Tucson. The movie, made...

Analyzing the Quentin Addition, Part I: The Trade

It’s probably a bit early to objectively assess the performance of Friars GM Josh Byrnes to this point in his tenure. After all, he didn’t join the franchise until December of 2010 and wasn’t named the club’s GM until nearly a year afterwards. To be fair Byrnes probably deserves another year or two before he can be judged. That being said, it’s not too early to grade one...

Daily Farm Round-Up: 8-14-13

The T-Pads and the Missions both enjoyed victories tonight. Tucson’s Cody Decker hit a walk off home run while San Antonio’s Matt Wisler delivered an excellent start. Both Lake Elsinore and Fort Wayne lost close games by 1 run. The Emeralds were blown out.

Carlos Quentin continues to have problems with right knee

Carlos Quentin has not played in a game since July 30 and the San Diego Padres are very concerned about the condition of his right knee. So much, in fact, that they left him have a second opinion on it Thursday. As reported by Corey Brock of, Quentin visited Kerlan-Jobe Orthopedic Clinic in Los Angeles for a second opinion.  Quentin had surgery on his knee in October...

Padres' Carlos Quentin may be done for the season

Aging and aching Padres slugger Carlos Quentin may already be finished for the season. Quentin who last played on July 30 received the third of three lubricant injections in his right knee in Los Angeles on Thursday. The club will see how Quentin responds over the next week to 10 days Padres general manager Josh Byrnes said before deciding on a next step. But failing significant...

Daily Friar 8.15.13

Andrew Cashner had a heck of a game throwing the ball, but the Padres offense couldn’t give him anything to work with. Some silly mistakes led to missed opportunities that either could have prevented the Rockies from scoring, or led the Padres to scoring. They lost the game in typical Padres fashion where things that go wrong tend to be glaring when the game is over. Life isn...

Coping With Bad Baserunning

The Padres ended up losing to Colorado 4-2 yesterday.  They had baserunners, got some timely hits for once, but couldn’t break on top.  One particularly painful sequence occurred in the top of the sixth inning, when singles by Jedd Gyorko and Jesus Guzman placed runners on the corners and no one out.  Logan Forsythe strode to the plate. Logan reached for a outside 2-2 pitch...

Padres analyst sneaks in "Baba Booey"

San Diego Padres analyst Mark Grant is quickly becoming a favorite in these parts for his willingness to have fun in the booth.  First it was getting this "Mitch Kupchak" joke past Dick Enberg.  Now we find him sneaking a "Baba Booey" in a promotional read. See kids, these kinds of things are funny when you actually don't expect them.  Baba Booey in...

The Roots Start Here

Ultimately, baseball is a form of entertainment.  Whether you decide to take yourself to a movie, a nice dinner or the ball yard determines, to a small degree, the viability of each.  The Padres are trying to tip the scales; and the organization is turning over some new rocks in doing so. Thursday night was Bloggers’ Night at Petco Park.  The local baseball team treated a group...

Jaff Decker’s First Homer

Number one. Padres history is littered with players who wore it on their back. Most couldn’t hit much. The last, Cody Ransom, went 0-for-11 before being released in mid-April. Ozzie Smith is in the Hall of Fame, although he never hit for the Padres. He and Enzo Hernández each had 83 sacrifice hits, most in franchise history, but those aren’t real hits. Calvin Schiraldi knocked...

Five Good Things: Having A Bad Trip Edition

Well our beloved Friars did not enjoy themselves over the last week, losing both series to Cincinnati and Colorado, including one of the most brutal back-to-back losses starting with a 13 inning series deciding heartbreaker at the Great American Ballpark followed by a 14-2 butt-whooping at Coors Field on Monday. I frankly haven’t seen a trip this bad since Dewey Cox’s relaxation...

Strange Days

Sometimes it’s tough to be a Padres fan. After Monday night’s game, which had a rain delay in the 8th inning despite the home team Colorado Rockies being up by 7 runs, I started thinking about strange things that have happened at Padres games I’ve been to or watched. The idea started out as a list with a possible poll included. Then I realized that a list with only a couple...
