Daily Friar 4.15.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

What can I say about this Padres team? They are looking lousy, that about sums up everything. After scoring 8 runs Friday night and putting up a reasonable fight, they only put up 1 run on 2 hits last night. I wonder if the ball was on a tee would our guys be able to hit it? Again I saw way too many pitches being taken right down the middle. But they were swinging away at pitches down by the shins. It’s heartbreaking to watch day in and day out. I know we’re only 9 games in, but something has got to change and fast. The highest batting average on the team right now is .222 and that belongs to Jason Bartlett.

Padres again hammered by Kemp, Dodgers –
“But if you’re looking for any one particular reason why Wieland’s debut went astray during the Padres’ 6-1 loss to the Dodgers before a crowd of 46,549, don’t pin it on a young pitcher buckling under with a case of nerves or being anxious.”

Blanks goes on DL to open spot for Wieland – Union Tribune
“Outfielder-first baseman Kyle Blanks went on the 15-day disabled list with a recurrence of the left shoulder strain that forced him to miss 11 days during spring training.”

Padres short on long relief – NCT
“With Anthony Bass in the rotation, the Padres are in search of a second long reliever behind Micah Owings.”

TV Stalemate – Insidethepadres
“Even if the Padres do perk up in, say, May, a month that has been kind to them many times in the past decade, one wonders how many fans will be paying attention. An industry that takes its customers for granted is asking to lose its customers.”

That was the third worst game of the season – Gaslamp Ball
“The only reason this was better than the Opening Day loss in my mind was that the Opening Day loss happened on Opening Day and after Joe Wieland settled down, he showed a bit of the stuff that kinda hints that he’ll be a strong performer for us in the future.”
