Daily Friar 4.27.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

What a great game the Padres played last night! Actually, I should rephrase that. What a great game Andrew Cashner played last night! The guy did everything pretty much, pitched great, got on base, stole a base and came in as the game tying run on Carlos Quentin’s RBI. The 2-1 lead going into the bottom of the ninth had me worried with the way that Huston Street has been pitching of late, but he was able to get out of it (not without theatrics though). The other thing that had me worried was the first inning run that was given up by Cashner. It was the tenth time in twenty-two games that a starting pitcher for the Padres has given up a first inning run. That can obviously lead to problems, but last night Cashner was able to lock it down quick. One thing I want to touch on real fast before the articles is the length of the game. Some people argue that baseball is too slow and boring when it gets into a pitcher’s duel. There isn’t enough offense and the excitement isn’t there and the game drags on. Well last night we had a pitcher’s duel on our hands and the game was over in two hours and nineteen minutes. I believe your argument is invalid. Here are your links for today:

Cashner impressive to win duel with Giants, Lincecum –

“Baker was referring to the type and quality of pitches that Cashner used to his advantage in the Padres’ 2-1 victory over the Giants before a crowd of 34,929 at Petco Park.”

Ross may have to adjust swing upon return from DL –

“Ross will continue to keep his arm in shape until he reaches the point where he can take batting practice and test the left shoulder. He’s even talked with hitting coach Phil Plantier about his swing.”

Some Padres notes – MLBTR

“Some fans are calling for a fire sale but Center points out that such a move wouldn’t be prudent given how many Padres are underachieving.”

Bringing in the fences will not increase wins – Rant Sports

“Okay well the main reason they moved the fences in is to put rear ends in the seats. When it comes down to it, people love to see the long ball. Whether that is the best way for their team to win games is irrelevant.”

An interview with Cory Spangenberg – MadFriars

“Now fully healthy, Spangenberg is looking to use his line-drive approach at the plate and plus-plus speed to get things back on track in his return performance at Lake Elsinore.”

A preview of tonight’s game – Gaslamp Ball

“After taking the series opener, the Padres look to keep the wins coming and secure just their second series win of the year tonight. We’ll see a rematch of the Sunday’s series finale in San Francisco.”

Will Robbie Erlin make his Padres debut this weekend? – Chicken Friars

“Although Erlin projects to be a starter, simply getting his feet wet out of the bullpen and gaining experience should be very beneficial for both him and the Padres early in his career.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 4-26-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“Tim Stauffer turned in a quality start for Tucson, yet the T-Pads were shutout and lost 3-0 to the Sky Sox. Donn Roach struggled for his second start in a row as the RockHounds blew out the Missions 11-4. The Storm collected just as many errors as hits in a sub-par effort against the Quakes. Fort Wayne was the only Padre affiliate to earn a victory today as Max Fried delivered a quality start and Gabriel Quintana collected 4 hits.”

Five good things from the Brewers series – Jeremy Nash of The Friarhood

“The Padres staved off another sweep, beating the Brewers 4-5 in the final game of their three game contest on Wednesday. The win put them at 6-15.”
