Daily Friar 3.21.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

We are inching ever closer to the start of the regular season! In fact one week from today will be the final game in Arizona. Then the team will head to San Antonio for a two game stint against the Rangers before a day off on the 31st. This will be the travel day to New York as they prepare for Opening Day against the Mets on April 1st. Andrew Cashner feels that he will be ready by then as he pitched yesterday and put up some good numbers. The only concern right now, in my eyes, is that he had a late start to the spring and isn’t exactly where the other pitchers are at this point. Where most guys are in the five to six inning area now, Cashner was only in there for 2 2/3 innings. He did give up one run, but he also struck out four in that time. Of more concern is Tim Stauffer had another awful outing. He took the loss as he gave up three runs on five hits in only three innings of work. Luke Gregerson and Huston Street both got an inning in and they were flawless. The team has a day off today, but it will be interesting to see what happens with a week to go before they break camp.

A look at team finances – Fangraphs

“The Padres have hovered in the 2.1 million attendance range for the last few seasons. That’s respectable in a city the size of San Diego, but it’s certainly not enough to inspire the new owners to spend more, at least in the short term.”

The latest on Rick Porcello – MLBTR

“The Padres declined to take Porcello for Huston Street or Luke Gregerson, a Tigers source told Bowden.”

“In fact, has anyone ever looked into whether or not the person in charge of promotions is a Hitchhiker’s Guide fan? That would explain so much.”

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.
