Daily Friar 10.16.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

I will admit that I didn’t watch the Cardinals and Giants game last night because I was too busy watching the Chargers give a big gift to the Broncos. Apparently from what I read (which you can read below) the Giants destroyed Cardinals pitching to even up the series 1-1. Tonight is game 3 of the Tigers and Yankees. It should be interesting to see if the Yankees offense can wake up, which personally I hope it doesn’t. In other news former Padre Wally Joyner has a new gig, and Bud Selig is still senile. Here are your links for today:

“Stults was a versatile pitcher that the Padres liked because he could be plugged into the rotation or be slotted as a long reliever in the bullpen.”

Selig explains why Moores was able to keep the TV money – Gaslamp Ball
“First Selig proclaims that TV money belongs and should remain with the team when Frank McCourt tried to spend a little less than $200m. Then John Moores does practically the same thing and the only explanation we get from Selig is it’s ‘different’.”

Cardinals at Giants –
“But Pence’s exhortations may have been eclipsed by the gutty Scutaro, painful left hip and all. He contributed a two-run single, the biggest hit in a four-run fourth inning, as the Giants evened the National League Championship Series at one game apiece with a 7-1 triumph over the St. Louis Cardinals.”
