Daily Friar 10.1.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

And that concludes Padres home games for 2012. It would have been nice to end the homestand on a high note, but I guess it just wasn’t meant to be. Huston Street has not looked the same since coming back from the calf injury, and that was extremely apparent yesterday. He hadn’t given up a home run all season until yesterday when he gave up two. This ultimately doomed the Padres and their chance to take a series from the Giants. Now we are off to a meaningless series in Milwaukee. Meaningless in terms of the standings, but there is one thing to watch. The first is the RBI race between Chase Headley and Ryan Braun. The Padres pitchers have a chance to help Headley out and make sure he wins that title. I don’t know how the schedule makers choose the games, but it was as if they expected the Padres to be out of it this year. The other 4 NL West teams are facing each other and the Padres are on the outside looking in. It’s a shame. Here are your Padres links for today:

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.
