Daily Friar 4.24.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

The Padres had their day off yesterday and are ready to play more baseball tonight. The Nationals make their way into Petco Park to give the Padres a challenge. The Padres are riding a 2 game winning streak coming into this one after splitting the series with the Phillies. We’ll see if they can continue to ride that wave and maybe win a series for once this season. I think this team can turn things around and not remain cellar dwellers the entire season. The only thing is the rest of the team needs to remain healthy. Here are your Padres links for today:

Recent deals signal Byrnes’ strategy –
“Deals like the ones the Padres made with Maybin, Luebke and Hundley are good examples of how even smaller-market teams can make some headway during these kind of spending sprees by teams.”

Fox says Time Warner might not carry Padres at all in 2012 – Union Tribune
“Fox Sports raised the possibility that the Padres might not appear on Time Warner Cable at any time during the 2012 season. Time Warner Cable countered, essentially calling the Fox statement a negotiations ploy.”

Strasburg’s absence could further hurt ticket sales – NCT
“A Padres team already down 14.59 percent in ticket sales this season could take another hit this week with the news that Stephen Strasburg won’t pitch at Petco Park.”

Hundley goes from zero to hero – Yahoo
“Hundley has 10 hits in his last 26 at-bats, including with a double, a triple, two home runs and eight RBI.”

Prospect of the Day: Andy Parrino – Minor League Ball
“A 26-year-old switch-hitter, Parrino isn’t a hulk at 6-0, 185, but he has some pop in his bat and the aforementioned patience at the plate.”

Tom Krasovic has a review and preview of the Padres – insidethepadres
“The Padres (5-12) will not be overlooked by any Gnats players who’ve been with the team for more than two years.

Born and raised in San Diego and a Padres fan since day one. On that fateful night of September 6, 1989 when I came into this world, the game was on in the delivery room and the Padres beat the Astros and I have been forever engrained with Padre blood. I have followed sports my whole life and have written the Daily Friar for over a year and enjoy bringing all of you the news each morning.
