Daily Friar 4.21.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

I am up in LA this weekend for the festival of books, which means I haven’t seen the Padres play a game since Thursday during the first inning. I do however check the scores on my phone or computer. And from what I have seen I haven’t been missing too much. The Padres have been continuing their losing ways again. Of course it was bound to happen when the Phillies came into town. These guys have owned us at Petco. It’s hard times being a Padres fan right now. Here are your Padres links for today:

Volquez’s gem unravels against the Phillies –
“After scoring one run in the first two games of this series against the Phillies, that run coming in Friday’s 4-1 loss before a crowd of 23,748 at Petco Park, the Padres know that they will get a steady dose of Roy Halladay on Saturday.”

Padres stuck in stagnant pace where outlook is sameness – Union Tribune
“How do you fix a lineup with severe limitations, improve an infield of diminishing range, repair a pitching rotation down two starters, and do it in midseason on an inelastic budget?”

Will Quentin be the answer? – NCT
“The struggling Padres definitely could use Carlos Quentin’s bat and they’re bound to get it sooner than later.”

Padres prepared to release Orlando Hudson – MLBTR
“Hudson’s release could coincide with the return of infield prospect Logan Forsythe, who will resume workouts this weekend after undergoing ankle surgery this spring.”

Cole Hamels, Padres fan – insidethepadres
“For the Padres and their fans, Hamels wants what the Phillies and their fans have enjoyed for the last several years.”

Chase Headley is the best/only option for the All Star Game – Chicken Friars
“As of right now, Headley leads San Diego in almost every major Offensive category and is essentially unchallenged in each.”

The San Diego Padres and Me – Gaslamp Ball
“I grew up 5,500 miles away from San Diego, in a time-zone eight hours ahead of America
