Could New Ownership and Changes to Citi Field Lead to Alterations at Petco?

Interesting couple of weeks for baseball fans in San Diego. It now looks like the long and complicated purchase of the club by a group led by former player agent Jeff Moorad is dead in the water. Moorad recently stepped down as CEO of the team, replaced by club president Tom Garfinkel on an interim basis. Rumor has it that Moorad may have been pushed out due to his inability to gain...

The San Diego Padres

The Padres are a team who had plenty to be excited about not too long ago. They had one of the best pitchers in the league as well as one of the premier first basemen in the game. Hell, the Padres were even playoff contenders in the NL West. How cruel this game can be in just a few short years. Now, there is still hope in San Diego with almost a completely different team this time...

Daily Friar 4.1.12

I'm sure Corey Brock is already working on a story about it for Padres.com, but for our purposes I am going to tell you who they are and post the story tomorrow if it comes up.

Daily Friar 4.3.12

The Padres have two days to make 5 more cuts to the team to make it down to the 25 man roster that is required for major league teams. Yesterday 4 more cuts were made, and at this point the cuts hurt even more. One of those cut yesterday was Matt Clark who had a monster spring, and if there wasn't a log jam at first base, would probably make this team. For more on the cuts check...
