Daily Friar 4.27.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

It’s no secret that the Padres have been awful this season. They have yet to win a series, the best they’ve done is tie with the Phillies. I do have to give them credit though, they have done a decent job at winning at least one game to avoid a sweep. Of the 6 series that we’ve played so far, only 1 has been a sweep. The other have been 2-1 losses (minus the tie). The Padres did just that last night salvaging a series against the Nationals. More on that down below, but we head up north tonight to take on the Giants. The team with the fans that think they still just won the World Series. Here are your Padres links for today

Kotsay delivers in a pinch, Padres top Nats –

Micah Owings placed on disabled list – Union Tribune
“The already lengthy list of injured Padres got longer Thursday when relief pitcher Micah Owings was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right forearm strain.”

Time for Fox and Time Warner to reach deal – John Maffei at NCT
“It’s time for officials from Fox Sports San Diego, the Padres —- who own 20 percent of the network —- Time Warner Cable and satellite providers AT&T U-verse, Verizon FiOS and Dish Network to barricade themselves in a room and not come out until a deal is reached to carry Padres games.”

CBSSports has some thoughts on what has become the “norm” for the Padres
“With ownership in flux since early in 2009, gorgeous Petco Park has become Bleak House, and the Padres like something straight out of a Charles Dickens novel. They are baseball’s orphans.”
