Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a night in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were (day) drinking.
The Friars were pummeled yesterday, giving up 6 home runs, 3 to Pablo Sandoval, and dropped the series finale to the Giants 13-5. Starter Eric Stults gave up 7 earned runs and the bullpen wasn’t much better on a bizarre home run infested day at a “pitchers park”.
The Padres have the day off today before looking to rebound with a 3-game set against the Rockies at Petco Park on Friday.

“We’ve seen Sandoval since he came into the National League,” said Padres manager Bud Black. “When he’s hot, he’s hot. He can hit any pitch. He’s tough to pitch to.” [Brock]
It's always such a treat to hear @PadsCast & The Colonel call the game. I need more of that. #PPLive

The Kung Fu Panda matched last year’s performance from game one of the World Series where he jacked three home runs against Justin Verlander and the Tigers. Last night Pablo Sandoval went deep three times against the Padres and it had been a long time coming for fantasy owners. Pablo Sandoval hit 3 HRS in 3 plate appearances. Prior to that, he had hit 3 HRs in 303 plate appearances...
While the San Francisco Giants' Pablo Sandoval showed his power, some wonder if the San Diego Padres' Eric Stults is running on empty.
''Is he getting tired?'' Padres Manager Bud Black said. ''I don't think so. His stuff still looks good. This time of the year one can go that direction, but he still feels physically good.''
The Padres handed out another contract late in a season. However, unlike the Huston Street and Carlos Quentin deals, the 2013 version should draw little criticism.
The organization bought out the remaining 2 arbitration years for Will Venable. Total dollars: $8.5 million. There are quite a few reasons why this deal is a solid investment for the team.
First, Venable likely is...
Gather around kids. Let me take you back to a time where DVD’s and Blu Ray discs didn’t exist. A time where you couldn’t just easily skip to a certain section of the movie. Yeah, sounds crazy right? Well that’s what it was like during the VHS era. I have a handful of Padres VHS tapes that I’m going to show you. I really need to convert these so I have them to enjoy forever...
When Andrew Cashner came to the Padres in a January 2012 trade that sent first baseman Anthony Rizzo to the Cubs, fans in San Diego were not amused. Rizzo, part of the haul for Adrián González, posted X-rated numbers in the hitters paradise known as Tucson and gave folks hope for a future brighter than anything Brad Hawpe or Jorge Cantú had to offer.
Rizzo struggled in his first...

The Padres are back at it tonight after having the day off yesterday. The Rockies are in town for a three game weekend series that will take us to the off day on Monday. Tonight is also Beer Fest and first pour is at 5 PM so be sure to get down there early. Following the Beer Fest will be first pitch as Burch Smith returns to the rotation to take on Juan Nicasio at 7:10 PST.
The good news is the Padres managed to win a series. The bad news is that the final game of the series against the Giants was horrendous. The pitching blew up and Pablo Sandoval had himself a field day mashing three home runs en route to the Giants’ victory. Padres have the day off today as they prepare for the Rockies over the weekend. Be sure to stay tuned to Friarhood.com for...
Hunter Renfroe finished his amateur career with a bang. The 21-year-old outfielder was one of the top players in the college ranks, hitting a robust .345, with 16 home runs, at Mississippi State. The San Diego Padres were impressed. They took him with the 13th overall pick in the June draft. Renfroe’s tool kit includes […]
Last month, Avenging Jack Murphy wrote about removing distractions and concentrating on the game at hand. It was very well thought out and informative.
This is not going to be anything close to well thought out. As far as informative, that is a matter of opinion.
Say hello to my stream of consciousness.
As the season winds down, and the Padres fight to stay out of last place in...
Pablo Sandoval hit three homers and drove in six runs Wednesday, leading a rare power show by the San Francisco Giants in a 13-5 win over the San Diego Padres.
Sandoval started the day with 10 home runs this season. He then hit a two-run shot in the fifth inning, a leadoff drive in the eighth and a three-run homer in the ninth.
Sandoval's only previous three-homer game came...

I’m sure you’ve heard by now that Pablo Sandoval hit three home runs in yesterday’s big win over the San Diego Padres. He looked like the Panda that hit three home runs in game one of the 2012 World Series. The only difference was that was on the highest stage for all of the baseball world to see, and this time it was on the lowest stage...
Only Pablo Sandoval of all people got away with running on Gerardo Parra.
A day after his three home-run trots in San Diego Sandoval was in sprinting mode in Thursday night's 4-2 loss to the Diamondbacks in the opener of a weeklong homestand. He tripled in the fourth inning belly-flopping into third base to complete a mad 270-foot dash and then had the gall to tag and head for...
Don’t be fooled by the title of this piece. It’s not another series of pot (belly) shots — sorry; couldn’t resist — at Pablo Sandoval and his exasperating Oprah-esque fluctuations.
It’s about the least-glamorized players on the Giants being the most responsible for the team’s failure.
Not that the Panda gets a pass here. He doesn’t. A team that succeeds in large part...
Get these pitcher ranks a day in advance and grab waiver wire starters before your league does!There are no surprises atop Wednesday’s rankings, but after the top 10 the slate of probable pitchers drops off pretty quickly. That doesn’t mean there aren’t some good risks to take with the day’s below average starters. As always, here are my trio of notes for Wednesday’s...
