Daily Friar Banner Rennick

Good morning Friar Faithful, I hope you all are enjoying your Saturday morning. I woke up kind of late, so I am about to enjoy my Saturday afternoon. Looks like I will have to catch Friarhood radio later tonight once the podcasts are up. If you are listening live right now I hope you are enjoying the show. Good news everyone! Cameron Maybin has been given an extension. For more on that click the first link below. Here are your Padres links for today:

Padres lock up Maybin with 5 year extension –
“Maybin’s extension is a five-year deal worth $25 million with a club option for 2017. This deal buys out Maybin’s three arbitration years and one year of free agency, according to a baseball source.”

The love of pitching drives Jeff Suppan – Union Tribune
“‘Sometimes, people lose sight of the best part of being a baseball player,’ Jeff Suppan said Friday. ‘Playing.'”

Grandal slow affot, but catching on fast – NCT
“Grandal expects to make significant defensive improvement this season under the direction of former big-league catchers Kennedy and Brad Ausmus, the Padres’ special assistant to baseball operations. Kennedy said the early focus has been on changing the angle of Grandal’s back when he’s behind the plate.”

Day 13: I’ll take some raggae with my BP, thanks – Follow The Padres
“I watched as Plantier worked with Jedd Gyorko and Blake Tekotte today. They were hitting the ball off a batting tee with Plantier stopping every few minutes or so to talk hitting, mechanics, adjustments and everything else in between, with the hitters.”

Expanded playoffs are here, but should they do more? – Gaslamp Ball
“Therefore, I propose that the MLB expands the playoffs even more…. TO 16 TEAMS. Everybody loves March Madness, but it’s the sweet 16 that they really want.”

The Carlos Quentin question: To extend or not to extend – Chicken Friars
“The team will likely want to see at least how Quentin performs through the All-Star break before considering a high-dollar contract extension.
