Daily Friar 2.7.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

There are some enticing pieces to share with you all today. Padres have claimed a new pitcher, who has some decent stuff (just not the greatest numbers). Also we have more news on which television companies will be carrying Padres games (spoiler alert: Time Warner is still out). Also we have a disgruntled fan taking to social media, some questions that need to be answered, and a look at why Cameron Maybin needs to have a big year. Okay, so it’s Thursday and that means that FanFest is two days away. I have said before that it is a fun time for all, and I hope that you do have fun if you go as well. I have been the past two years, and I hate to say it that this year I will not be attending. I unfortunately have a family thing I have to go to instead. Remember that Steve Adler will be hosting a Friarhood meetup on the field by second base at 11:45, so be sure to stop by for the group photo and say hello. That’s all I have for today, so enjoy the articles:

Padres claim righty Fautino De Los Santos from the Brewers – Padres.com

“De Los Santos didn’t pitch in the Major Leagues for the Brewers but compiled a 2-3 record and a 5.80 ERA in 49 2/3 innings at the Triple-A level in the A’s and Brewers system.”

Time Warner is the lone holdout as Dish agrees to carry Padres games – Union Tribune

“The Padres are hoping the dispute between Fox and Time Warner will be resolved before Opening Day. But a statement released late Wednesday by Time Warner didn’t seem to indicate a deal was any closer than it was a year ago.”

Armed with damning documentary, one Padres fan takes on the club – CBS Sports

“A smart man with a deft talent for navigating the digital age, Marver has spent his spare time over the past few years collecting and bookmarking video and sound bites in which various Padres officials send one truth after another through the spin cycle.”

Pressing Questions: San Diego Padres - Yahoo

“Outside Huston Street, Headley and shortstop Everth Cabrera, who is a strong candidate for another 40-plus steals, this is a club that offers little excitement from a fantasy perspective.”

Will the real Cameron Maybin please stand up? – Rant Sports

“There isn’t a whole lot of doubt that the potential is there for another breakout season, but the Padres should know who the real Cameron Maybin is by the end of the season.”

About the author: Matt Rennick

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.
