Keeping Headley

The Padres resisted multiple overtures from contending clubs looking to supplement their rosters for their playoff pursuits and actually held onto one of the more valuable trade deadline commodities. In the midst of a career offensive season (20 HR, .275/.363/.463 slash line), Chase Headley is also a solid defender at a key position and is arbitration eligible for two more seasons...

Daily Friar 8.20.12

Finally the Padres get to a guy in the rotation that knows how to actually pitch. Instead of throwing batting practice to Giant's hitters, Clayton Richard shut down their bats in route to a Padres victory yesterday. Just a small victory as it did end our losing streak, but it also gives us momentum going into the Pirates series. The Pirates just finished up a 19 inning game against...

Daily Friar 8.21.12

If only the Padres could play the Pirates all season. No matter how good or bad these teams are from season to season, the Padres seem to dominate them.

And with this victory the Padres are back on a winning streak after losing 5 in row to finish off that road trip that...

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. San Diego Padres – Game 123

Daily Friar 8.19.12

Much like San Francisco Giants fans the team would just not go away last night. Every time the Padres grabbed a lead or tied the game, the Giants just came back like it was nobody's business. It was as if they were toying with us and seeing how much fight we had in us. In the end the Giants came out on top 8-7 to hand the Padres their fifth loss in a row. I'm not sure who...
