Daily Friar 3.21.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

It was a big day for the Padres yesterday. A contract got extended, and the team pulled out a win last night. This team has been looking pretty good as of late driving in runs and getting men on base when it counts. It’s interesting to note too that this team is staying hot even without the presence of Carlos Quentin in the lineup. In fact one of his potential replacements come opening day, Jesus Guzman, hit a grand slam last night. The Padres take on the Dodgers today and I for one hope they light up the scoreboard again. Here are your Padres links for today:
