San Diego Padres
San Diego has an impressive system with both some high-ceiling talent and depth. The organization has had some impressive drafts recently, and a number of trades have brought in exciting talent.

While they’re unlikely to get the same package they received
for right-hander Mat Latos last offseason, the San Diego Padres should think
about trading third baseman Chase Headley sometime during spring training,
according to Jim Bowden of ESPN.
Bowden notes that the Padres and Headley recently avoided
arbitration on a one-year deal. Prior to that agreement, the sides...
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...
Curt Schilling never mentioned Jed Hoyer or Theo Epstein when making his bold claims on Thursday, but Hoyer decided to clear the air before fingers start getting pointed.
Schilling claimed during an appearance on ESPN Radio on Wednesday that he had been approached about using PEDs while recovering from an injury by someone working for the Red Sox in 2008. Schilling said those who...
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).

Fox Sports San Diego has been busy lately and today is probably going to be the biggest splash. FSSD has announced three new members of the team. As part of the 78% of the county that doesn’t subscribe to Time Warner (because I’m not a Dodger lover), I enjoy the TV side of things. 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...

The time has come to roll out our 2013 Friarhood Event schedule. Below you will find a preliminary list of Friarhood games. If you haven’t joined us at a game, the goal is simple. To sit around other Padres fans and have a good time. No one likes being the only Padres fan or sitting around a bunch of the other teams fans. Not only do you get to...
There is a lot to get to today. As we are approaching the start of Spring Training and with FanFest tomorrow, a lot of things are taking shape with the club. Also I have a ton of links to some great Friarhood events and contests down at the very bottom of this piece. Let me start off with a little baseball news as the Seattle Mariners appear to be on the verge of a large contract...
