Daily Friar 1.25.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

Last night was the Padres inaugural members meeting. This was previously called the season ticket holders meeting, but now instead of being season ticket holders you are known as members of the club. I didn’t get to go because I am not a season ticket holder, but many people were there last night including a few Friarhood members. Brandon Cline was the official tweeter for the Padres last night and was giving us a play by play of what happened and what was talked about. He also wrote a great piece recapping all the information which will be found below. After reviewing some of the stuff that was said last night, I have some mixed reactions. Some of the answers seemed canned, but there were candid moments as well, which I really liked. I think my favorite part is Bud Black saying Edinson Volquez needs to pitch better. Not too often your manager blatantly calls you out before the season starts. Anyways I won’t keep talking about it, and I will let you read all about it below. Enjoy the (minimal) articles:

2013 Padres Inaugural Members Meeting Recap – Brandon Cline of The Friarhood

“With this event tonight, it just signifies that baseball is rapidly approaching. January is almost over and we just have to suffer through the doldrums of February until Spring Training is upon us. We can do this, guys.”

Gaslamp Ball calls out Time Warner Cable

“Just in case you were hoping for something else, the thing you should know is that Time Warner Cable still won’t be carrying the Padres in 2013.”

Thousands pay respect to Stan Musial - MLB.com

“A six-hour public visitation for Stan Musial, who died at the age of 92 on Saturday, brought thousands of people out to the Cathedral Basilica on Thursday. There, they could join a line that snaked through the Basilica pews and ended at Musial’s open casket.”

About the author: Matt Rennick

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.

    22% of the county subscribed to Time Warner. Most, if not all have the option to switch to UVerse or Direct TV and choose not to. Personally, when I lived in the Time Warner market I flip-flopped as Padres season came and went each year. At this point people that really want to see the Padres will switch. If they aren’t willing to switch, then watching Padres games isn’t really a big deal. My two cents.

    Switched to Direct TV last year. I watch VERY LITTLE TV, but I do watch most Padres games that I don’t attend. Time Warner really pissed me off last year. No Padres – No TW.
