Daily Friar 1.12.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

Anybody getting bored with the offseason yet? I know I am. Luckily we have playoff football to watch, and I have been using basketball to tide me over for the most part. However, there is that gaping hole in me that is longing for baseball to fill it. The time will come though, it’s almost here. In fact we are one month away from the day that pitchers and catchers report to spring training! The schedule has the FanFest on the 9th and then pitchers and catchers report on the 12th and then position players report on the 15th. Now the looming question is, with just a month left to the start of spring training will the Padres make a move? The short term answer is not yet, the long term answer is we don’t know. This is another day of non-Padres news as they have done nothing yet again. So the Daily Friar for today will feature general MLB news as well as some happenings from our NL West competitors. Enjoy!

Competitor group and Padres announce partnership –

“Competitor Group (CGI) and the San Diego Padres today announced a multi-year partnership to bring the 16th annual Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon & ½ Marathon To Benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society downtown to finish at Petco Park.”

Spring training reporting schedule – CBS Sports

“A glance at the calendar will reveal to you that these liturgies begin in less than one month. This, suffice it to say, is most welcome news.”

Dodgers Stadium getting overdue overhaul – Fox Sports

“The Guggenheim Baseball Group has committed more than $100 million to refurbish and modernize the 51-year old stadium, third oldest in baseball behind Fenway Park and Wrigley Field.”

Seedlings to Stars analyzes the Upton no trade

“Do you give up a chunk of your farm for that?  Yeah, you do.  Especially in Seattle’s case, because (1) even the “down” version of Upton is much better than the Mariners’ immediate outfield options (sorry, Casper Wells and/or Eric Thames); and (2) the guys the Mariners were going to give up come from positions of strength in the system.”
