Daily Friar 1.20.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

I thought I was going to be able to get to the Daily Friar yesterday, but as it turned out it didn’t happen. Let me start off today’s piece by sending my thoughts out to the families of Earl Weaver and Stan Musial. It’s a sad day in baseball whenever one of the greats leaves the earth, and yesterday we lost two of the most iconic faces of the game. Earl Weaver, the feisty Orioles Hall of Fame manager passed away at 82, and Stan “The Man” Musial, the great St. Louis Cardinal passed away at 92. Friday was the end of salary figures being exchanged and now we have a clearer picture as to who will be heading to hearings, and who has agreed on contracts. Below is the Padres.com article on the whole thing, and I also put the Friarhood link that quickly gives the salary numbers. In MLB news, the one article I posted below is pretty important in my mind. The Cubs are planning on doing some renovations of Wrigley Field. To me this is significant as it is one of the most iconic parks in the league. So without further ado, let’s get to those links:

Padres still have some work to do with arbitration – Padres.com

Padres offseason is hardly a hit – Union Tribune

“‘We’re going to be close to ($70 million) and if some things happen it will to take us over,’ Fowler said of a payroll that, gasp, is approaching levels of when the Padres played at Qualcomm Stadium.”

A look at the salary numbers that were recently agreed on – The Friarhood

“Padres avoid arbitration with a four players, while still working on three more.”

Chicago Cubs are planning on renovating Wrigley Field – MLB.com

“The Cubs unveiled a $300 million renovation plan for Wrigley Field, to be completed over five offseasons, and the Ricketts family will pay for the renovations if the city of Chicago will ease some of the restrictions it has placed on what the team can do with the ballpark.”

Born and raised in San Diego and a Padres fan since day one. On that fateful night of September 6, 1989 when I came into this world, the game was on in the delivery room and the Padres beat the Astros and I have been forever engrained with Padre blood. I have followed sports my whole life and have written the Daily Friar for over a year and enjoy bringing all of you the news each morning.
