Daily Friar Banner Rennick

As the playoffs get started, the Padres offseason begins. I wouldn’t expect signinficant news to come out in the next few weeks, but I will keep my eye out for anything to come. It’s kind of frowned upon to make breaking news during the playoffs because Bud Selig wants all eyes on the winning teams.

So enjoy the playoffs and check back here each day for a little snippet of Padres news. Here are your Padres links for today:
