The hot corner has been a very diverse mix for the Friars.  From the incredibly good to whatever adjective you want to use for the opposite of good.  We continue to look at the top 5 players in Padres history at each position.  The first rule: we will only consider the players’ time with the Padres, so Mike Piazza doesn’t count because he was only here for 1 year.  I have set a completely arbitrary minimum of 200 games with the Padres.  The other rule: players will be considered for their primary position; so Gene Tenace is a catcher and not a first baseman. First, we looked at catcher where Terry Kennedy barely beat out Benito Santiago for top spot.  We then moved to first base, where Adrian Gonzalez unfortunately earned the top spot over Nate Colbert.  Continuing around the diamond, we selected Mark Loretta and his offense over Roberto Alomar and his 5 tools.  Then, it was on to shortstop where Garry Templeton’s longevity beat out Khalil Greene’s power numbers.  Third base will be...

Fantasy Preview: San Diego Padres

For a team that endured more than its fair share of injuries to the starting rotation last season, the Padres did well to reach the 76-win mark to avoid finishing in the cellar of the NL West. Even with the hurdle of playing half of their games at cavernous Petco Park, the Padres piled up 651 runs last season - more than the Dodgers, Mets, Marlins and Cubs - while featuring a lineup...

Padres 11, Indians 8

Logan Forsythe offers the San Diego Padres many options. Yet, he's trying to leave them with only one choice. He wants to start. Forsythe gave the Padres two more reasons to make him a regular: he hit two triples in the same inning of an 11-8 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday. ''He's ready to play every day,'' Black said. ''He wants...

Daily Friar 3.1.13

Happy March Padres fans! We are exactly one month away from opening day! The team is chugging along in Arizona to get everything ready for when they take on the Mets in New York. Yesterday’s game resulted in another loss to a Royals team that has yet to lose this spring. Some things to take away from yesterday’s game though is Jason Marquis was outstanding. In two innings he...

Daily Friar 2.28.13

Yesterday we had our first split squad games of the spring, unfortunately both of them ended in a loss. As we know though spring is not about wins and losses, but about how each player is progressing as we move closer to the start of the regular season. Since most hitters will see about two, maybe three plate appearances on average per start their numbers will appear ballooned when...

Daily Friar 3.2.13

Whenever the Padres face the Dodgers it’s always nice to win. No matter what time of the year it is.

Yesterday the two teams faced each other and the Padres won. Even though it is spring training it felt good to win. What made it even sweeter...
