Edwin Jackson – Photo by Keith Allison Edwin Jackson could soon be calling Petco Park home.  Jim Bowden of ESPN reported today via twitter, “Padres and Edwin Jackson continue to negotiate towards 3- year deal according to Padres source” For those fans that have wanted to see the Padres New Ownership flex some muscle, your time may be here.  With most of the free agent starters off the market, Jackson and 34 year old Kyle Lohse are the best names available.  If Jackson were to sign, the Padres would be the eighth team for the 29 year old. Our own Brandon Cline made his case for Edwin Jackson earlier this week.  If Jackson does sign he would compete for (and should win) the opening day start and join a group that includes Jason Marquis, Edinson Volquez, Clayton Richard, Eric Stults, Casey Kelly, as well as Andrew Cashner, Cory Luebke, and Joe Wieland when they return from injury.

So, no, this article needs no explanation. It's simply an example, a reminder of sorts. Sports are more than just a competitive activity designed for exercise and...

Daily Friar 12.17.12

Hello all! Here we are at a brand new week, and it is a week that I hope can turn into something eventful for the Padres. If I were to take an educated guess as to what the Padres are doing, I would say that you will have a new face in a Padre uniform by the end of the week, I hope anyway. I want to step aside for a second and apologize yet again for not having a Daily Friar for...
