Daily Friar 1.4.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

With yesterday’s announcement of FanFest being in just over a month, the smell of baseball is becoming ever stronger. For those that haven’t been to FanFest, or FriarFest as they used to call it, I highly recommend going out. It is a lot of fun in that you get the opportunity to meet a bunch of players, get to go on the field and walk around, listen in on Q&A sessions, and buy some game used stuff to help out the Padres Foundation. I have gone the past two years and I had a blast each time. The first year I was getting autographs all day, last year I played it very casual and got a few autographs but mostly just walked around and enjoyed the atmosphere. This is the event that really leads into the season. Just after the Padres head to Peoria for spring training, then after it’s time for the regular season. So get ready Padres fans, baseball is coming!

“The rewards will expand beyond tickets and souvenirs to include year-round events — some including Padres players and staff members — and discounts at participating partners.”

The Padres had the wrong team for their old ballpark - Hardball Times

“Bringing in the fences for 2013 will probably benefit the Padres as they are currently constructed. I’m sure Chase Headley, who hit 18 of his 31 home runs away from Petco, will enjoy the changes.”

Some MLB news follows:

Reds are discussing multiyear deals with Latos and Bailey – MLB.com

“Like ace Johnny Cueto, who was signed to a four-year, $27 million deal before the 2011 season, the Reds wouldn’t mind locking up the power arms of Latos and Bailey with multiyear contracts.”

Dodgers add Jeremy Moore – Seedlings to Stars

Moore missed the entirety of the 2012 season after undergoing hip surgery early last Spring. Prior to the injury, however, he was ranked among the top prospects (#11) within the Angels’ organization entering the 2011 season.”

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.
