Daily Friar 2.16.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

Today is a big day for spring training. All the players are in camp and today was the first day of full team workouts. Everybody is getting stretched out and gearing up for the first game coming up on the 22nd. Of course that will be the annual charity game against the Mariners, thus kicking off the yearly Vedder Cup. Also today Yasmani Grandal issued his apology to the team. I’m sure we will see a report on that very soon, I will probably have it up tomorrow if someone writes about it. From what I have read though is that the focus this spring will be on Nick Hundley and John Baker so that they are ready to take on the load. Grandal is eligible to come back at the end of May when the team is in Seattle. Also one little side note to close this out, I have hit my click limit on the Union Tribune site. So for the time being I won’t be able to post stuff from that site since I refuse to pay for their subscription. There are still good articles to get to today, so here they are:

Padres project recovering Andrew Cashner as a starter – Padres.com

“With Cash, if you’re to break him down as a pitcher and project future potential, you can see a starter in the type of pitcher he is,” Black said. “Let’s explore the starting.”

Padres like direction team is heading - CBS Sports

“We have options on the young guys competing and, on the whole, we have our guys locked up beyond this season. If this group can play to its potential, like it did later in last year, it should be together for a while.”

Cameron Maybin and Logan Forsythe are dealing with minor injuries – NBC Sports

“Neither of the injuries is considered serious. The Padres will continue to evaluate both players on a day-to-day basis going forward.”

A glimpse into the future: Rico Noel - Chicken Friars

“Noel’s game is tailored for the leadoff spot in the lineup, and just may be the Padres’ best Minor League leadoff hitter in the organization’s history.”

Friarhood Scavenger Hunt Winners – Friarhood

“The main focus of Friarhood since its inception was to be an active community and engage other Padres fans.  In an effort to do that, we had a scavenger hunt during FanFest.  Plenty entered, few won.”

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.
