Daily Friar 4.22.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

Wow. Just wow. That’s all I can say to sum up this past series with the Giants. The Padres were outscored 10-2 in this series sweep by the Giants. All two of those runs came in game one, and then they followed up with back to back shut outs. In fact the Padres have now gone twenty-one innings without putting a run on the board. Add this sweep to the two sweeps already by the Rockies, and then the losing series from the Mets and Dodgers (we did sweep them once too), and the Padres are now sitting on a 5-13 record for the first 18 games of the season. Management was trying to say that the team didn’t need improvement over last season because they finished hot and that was going to carry over into this season and lead us into the promise land. The entire offseason most of us were saying, “yeah right.” Here is your proof front office, the Padres are not getting it done. Granted there are some great players in this lineup, it’s just a matter of getting them to all hit cohesively. I think Mark Grant said it best during the last game at Dodger stadium when he stated that when the team is winning like that everybody can relax and play their game, but when they’re not everybody is pressing to be that guy to make the difference. Hopefully they can go out tonight in front of the home crowd and relax. Here are your links for today:

Padres’ offense stagnant in sweep by Giants –

“Like air being let out of a beach ball, the Padres’ offense hissed quietly during a sweep by the Giants, the latest setback a 5-0 loss before a sold-out crowd.”

Blanks needs four stitches after collision – NBC Sports

“Kyle Blanks needed four stitches above his left eye as a result of his sunglasses cutting him during a collision with the outfield wall in Sunday’s loss to the Giants.”

Chase Headley models for GQ – Gaslamp Ball

“I just learned that Padres 3B Chase Headley is being featured in GQ’s May issue as a model!”

Will Andrew Cashner now move to the starting rotation? – Chicken Friars

“For now though, Tyson will be on the 15-Day Disabled List as he nurses his non-throwing shoulder, and it appears that Cashner is San Diego’s most logical choice to round out the back end of their starting rotation.”

Some perspective on slow starts – Padres Public

“The Padres brass said they couldn’t afford to get off to another slow start this year. Mission not accomplished so far.”

The Quentin Quandary – Chris Kelly of The Friarhood

“So, in a nutshell, we risked very little to acquire Quentin’s services, so that was a good move. But, the extension has to raise some eyebrows.”

Late thoughts on the Quentin-Greinke dust-up – Glen Miller of The Friarhood

“Now that some time has passed and I’ve had a chance to chew on it, digesting what others have had to say or write about it, I’m ready to talk about the event and the aftermath.”

A diamond in the rough: 2013 Lake Elsinore Storm – Cheri Bell of The Friarhood

“If you are a lover of minor league baseball, don’t miss the opportunity to see the newly remodeled Diamond as she plays host to several young pros who you could be seeing in a Padres uniform in a couple of seasons.”

Five Good Things: Swept away by the Bay – Jeremy Nash of The Friarhood

“That, my friends, was not a pretty series to watch. After sweeping the Dodgers, our beloved friars went into San Francisco and got swept.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 4-21-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“The T-Pads win a close one on the strength of Dean Anna’s first two home runs of the year, and a solid start by Tim Stauffer. Donn Roach lost his second straight start as the Missions offense was held to just 1 run for the second night in a row. The Storm got swept by the Rawhide despite Lee Orr’s continued success at the plate. The TinCaps win thanks to a strong start by starter Justin Hancock.”
