Daily Friar 3.12.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

The Padres must have felt like they were in batting practice yesterday. In total they hit five doubles and four home runs in route to a very strong win over the Oakland A’s. In fact the pitching even had very little trouble all day as the staff collectively gave up just four hits. It’s nice to see everything work out even if it is just in spring. The bats were heating up as the sun was shining down in Peoria, much like the bats tend to heat up during Sunday’s home games. We know this team can hit, the question remains how will that translate when they head back to Petco and try to hit there again? The first three stadiums that the Padres open the season with are polar opposites of each other. First they start in Citi Field, which is a pitchers park no doubt and then it’s off to Coors Field before coming home to Petco. They are really going to have to keep the gap hitting up with runners on base in order to score runs in my opinion. Anyway enough of that, let’s get to some articles:

Tyson Ross pitches three scoreless as the Padres cruise past the A’s – Padres.com

“Kyle Blanks and Nick Hundley continued their torrid springs with back-to-back RBI doubles in the first inning as the Padres plated three runs in the frame. They’d never look back en route to a 10-0 victory over Oakland on Monday at Peoria Sports Complex.”

Padres may impress in 2013 – Mike Bauman on MLB.com

“It may be easy for people looking on from a distance to dismiss the Padres out of hand, given the much higher profile of two of their divisional opponents. But if the Padres continue to play the way they did in the second half of 2012, dismissing them will also be completely incorrect.”

Padres monitoring Edinson Volquez – Union Tribune

“That won’t happen,” Padres manager Bud Black said Monday morning. “Common sense tells you that you can’t go from 11 to 80 pitches.”

Carlos Quentin is feeling knee soreness again – NBC Sports

“The Padres are downplaying it for the time being, but it’s the same knee Quentin has had operated on twice over the last year, so we can’t take it too lightly.”

Padres 2013 team is locked down – NBC San Diego

“Today the team agreed to terms with 24 new players for the 2013 season, including right-handed pitcher Anthony Bass, first baseman Yonder Alonso, and second baseman Logan Forsythe.”

Next installment of Sisterhood of the Traveling Jersey – Gaslamp Ball

“Anyways, I had a great time. I’ll never forget my time with the jersey. It was just as magical as I expected it to be.”

Cashing in on Cashner – Chicken Friars

“As a power pitcher, such an outcome should boost Cashner’s confidence as well as add a new wrinkle to Padre’s starting rotation competition.”
