Daily Friar 2.19.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

The first spring training game is coming up very quickly. Friday marks opening day over at the Peoria Sports Complex as the Padres take on the Mariners. In fact that is the team they will be playing all weekend. The starting pitchers have been announced as well for those games with Sean O’Sullivan getting the nod on Friday, Tyson Ross Saturday and Freddy Garcia on Sunday. It will be interesting to see how all of them do and we will see if Bud Black likes what he sees enough to make one of them a bottom of the rotation pitcher. There are so many pitchers in camp that many will be coming out of the bullpen to get some work I am sure. I’m glad I am not Bud Black and have to make the decision on who stays and who goes. There are plenty of articles to get to today, including some that aren’t linked on here. But be sure to check out as there is a ton of new material for you all to look at.

Black gives nod to O’Sullivan for spring opener –

‘Padres manager Bud Black was reluctant to name the team’s Opening Day starter, but he did announce that Sean O’Sullivan will start the team’s Spring Training opener on Friday against the Seattle Mariners.”

Nick Hundley is ready to go – CBS Sports

“Hundley shows no sign of wear and tear now. He reported to spring training with a reconstructed swing, a clean bill of health and a shot at redemption.”

Cameron Maybin still sidelined with sore wrist – NBC Sports

“Maybin has dealt with wrist issues over each of the past two seasons, so it’s a bit troubling that it continues to follow him.”

Everth Cabrera is a key component for the Padres – Rant Sports

“If Cabrera can hit for around .280 average and get his on-base percentage up to a normal lead-off hitter range, not only will he have an incredible year for stolen bases, but the Padres will score more runs.”

4 Padres make the list with the highest being Casey Kelly at 45

A discussion on Chase Headley – Gaslamp Ball

‘Even that is understandable — if Headley’s value stays down a bit now, maybe the sting of a raise through an extension won’t be as severe.”

Five ridiculously optimistic projections for 2013 – Glen Miller of The Friarhood

“Again, allow me to reiterate, I said ridiculous. That means I really don’t expect any of them to actually come true, though I would love it if they did.”
