Found September 30, 2012 on Bush League Chronicle:
Saturday brought us yet another candidate for catch of the year as San Diego Padres outfielder Cameron Maybin hauled in a beauty. The play occurred in the very first inning of the Padres home game against the San Francisco Giants. With two outs, Giants outfielder Xavier Nady crushes a drive high and deep toward the center-field wall. That's when Maybin rises up and robs Nady of a homer with a spectacular catch, tearing the padding on the wall with his cleats in the process. San Diego would rally from three runs down to upend San Francisco, 7-3. How does Maybin's catch compare to the one Pirates outfielder Travis Snider made on Thursday?

Padres' Street endures first blown save of season

San Diego Padres right-handed closer Huston Street said he's not one to think much about good or bad outings. "In my opinion, it is a waste of time to focus on the past for more than a few minutes," said Street. "Focus on what you can do moving forward." That might be an excellent philosophy given what happened in the ninth inning Sunday at Petco Park...

Padres Drop Final Home Game And Series With Blown Save Against Rival Giants.

The Padres lost their last home game of the year on Sunday, also losing their fourth consecutive series as their season comes to a close. Huston Streets first blown save of the season ended with their sixth loss in the last 10 games. The Giants beat the Padres 3-1 on Friday before the Padres answered back with a convincing 7-3 win on Saturday. But Huston Street surrendered both a...

Daily Friar 10.1.12

And that concludes Padres home games for 2012. It would have been nice to end the homestand on a high note, but I guess it just wasn't meant to be. Huston Street has not looked the same since coming back from the calf injury, and that was extremely apparent yesterday. He hadn't given up a home run all season until yesterday when he gave up two. This ultimately doomed the...

Daily Friar 9.29.12

It must be getting close to the end of the season because the news is hard to come by with the Padres of late. The MLB world only cares about winning teams, and since the Padres are not winning right now there is no news here apparently. Of course I have come to expect this come the offseason, but not with a week left to play. I thought we would still have some stuff to talk about...

Daily Friar 9.30.12

Maybe there is life in the Padres offense after all. After a week of scoring no more than 4 runs in a game, the Padres put up 7 last night on the heels of their best run producer. Chase Headley hit his 30th home run of the year and pushed his RBI total up to 112, which ties him with Ryan Braun for the NL lead. Those two have gone back and forth all month and will most likely come...

Padres 7, Giants 3

Chase Headley hit his 30th home run and had three RBIs to tie Ryan Braun for the NL lead with 112 and the San Diego Padres beat Buster Posey and the NL West champion San Francisco Giants 7-3 on Saturday night. Posey, who started at catcher a night after being hit in the throat with a wild pitch, went 2 for 2 with a to raise his average to .337 and increase his lead in the NL batting...

Daily Friar 9.28.12

I guess things come around full circle every once in a while. We all know how awful the season started, then how great we were playing in the middle of the season, and now things have gone bad once again. The Padres have dropped another series, this time against the Dodgers. The sad part is they are not losing close games they are getting blown out. Yes we have young pitchers who...
