Daily Friar 3.31.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

One more day left till we get to see the Padres take the field in a game that actually counts! That spring training was very long this year, and I for one am glad that is over. Now we get to see if all that work will pay off and we will also see if the numbers that occurred can carry over as well. Just a reminder that the game has an early start time tomorrow, it will be on at 10:10 AM Pacific time. So either DVR it, call in sick to work, or lay in bed and watch it while eating some breakfast. The other option is you can head on down to the East Village Tavern and Bowl where you can grab some food and watch the game as well. If you are a member of the congregation you will receive your card and you can save 15%. That brings up another point, the membership cards are here so if you know you should get one contact Steve Adler to arrange a pick up. So tomorrow is opening day for most of the clubs, but there is one game tonight as both Texas teams go head to head to open the season. A preview of the game can be found below:

Denorfia’s two homer game not enough at Alamodome –

“The longest Spring Training in franchise history came to a close Saturday for the Padres, who fell to the Rangers, 5-2, before a crowd of 40,569 at the Alamodome.”

A preview of tomorrow’s game –

“But with thousands of eyes focused on the starting nine Padres skipper Bud Black and Mets manager Terry Collins pencil onto their lineup card, there’ll be a handful of conspicuous names missing for each club on Monday.”

New season, but not many newcomers – Union Tribune

“But say this for the Padres. For better and/or worse — which soon shall become evident enough — they’ve got some semblance of continuity.”

A look at the starting rotation – Rant Sports

“Both questions were answered this past week when Padres manager Bud Black announced that Edinson Volquez would make his second consecutive opening day start for the Friars and Tyson Ross would be the man to fill the fifth spot for San Diego at the end of the rotation.”

Padres Minor League Camp Report: March 30 – MadFriars

“The San Diego Padres wrapped up minor league camp on Saturday with the Double-A and Triple-A squads both taking losses.”

Potential Padre Milestones – Gaslamp Ball

“The annual sneak peek at what individual career and franchise milestones and records could be set this coming season.”

Why Opening Day should be a holiday – Chicken Friars

“Major League Baseball’s Opening Day should be annually celebrated as a National Holiday (or day of mourning depending on your team). This makes so much sense, that it actually hurts my brain when I try to figure out why it hasn’t happened yet.”

Injuries remind Padres fans the prospects are no sure thing – Steve Adler of The Friarhood

“2012 was a reality check for fans that paid close attention to the system.  A combination of major injuries, down years, and failure to progress plagued the system.”

Padres throw away one year of Gyorko for one month now – Steve Adler of The Friarhood

“If the Padres waited until May 1 they would control Gyorko’s rights through 2019.  By having him break camp with the team, the Padres only control him through 2018.”

Win tickets to Padres home opener – The Friarhood

“You just need to submit a picture of yourself (not your animal, or your child) to steveadler AT friarhood DOT com, representing your Padres/Friarhood pride before Sunday 9pm PST to be eligible.”

A preview of Texas Rangers at Houston Astros –

“Now, baseball’s Texas teams will be playing one another 18 times a year, and the rivalry that never seemed to take hold during Interleague Play will have a chance to draw an entire state into the conversation.”
