Daily Friar 12.26.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

I hope that you all had a Merry Christmas and a wonderful holiday spending time with friends and family. As expected the news was very quiet the past few days, which is why I took the couple of days off since it wouldn’t be much of anything. Today seems to be official announcement day for most teams as they are announcing moves that happened before Christmas. Among the official announcements are the Joel Hanrahan trade from the Pirates to the Red Sox, A.J. Pierzynski signing with the Rangers, and Stephen Drew signing with the Red Sox as well. As for the Padres, well nothing has happened yet. At all. But even as it stands I have found some Padres articles for you all to browse. So let’s get to those now:
Submit articles and follow me on twitter

Brad Brach’s underdog story an inspiration to his girlfriend – Padres.com

“Padres reliever Brad Brach doesn’t look out of place mostly because if Cherry is playing here or elsewhere — an acoustic show or a nearly four-hour set with her band — he’ll be there.”

Minor League Baseball has a great piece on players using twitter

“Players like A’s prospect Jeremy Barfield and Padres farmhand Cody Decker choose to play the role of comedian, favoring witty banter, sharp one-liners and an anything-goes approach to discussing topics.”

Hundley looking to make most of new opportunity – Union Tribune

“Four months later, Hundley is actively preparing himself for the 2013 season. He has been working out with Phil Plantier in the batting cage at the hitting coach’s Poway home.”

Seedlings to Stars has an article on former Padres prospect Simon Castro

“If Castro can harness his curve or his changeup into just slightly better pitches, he could become a very effective pitcher in Chicago this year.”

Glen Miller makes the case for the platoon in right field – The Friarhood

“However, together Venable and Denorfia form a combination that produces more offense than that which other teams get from their primary starter at the position.”

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.
