Daily Friar 5.1.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

Welcome to May everyone! This has been historically a pretty hot month for the Padres, which is great news if history can repeat itself. Before I touch on May, let’s talk about the final game in April, and what a game it was! The Padres scored 13 runs on 17 hits last night and it was sure a lot of fun to watch. Everyone that came to the plate contributed to some degree and showed that they can in fact hit with runners on base. With the win last night they closed out April with a 10-16 record. I know it doesn’t look like much, but when you put it in the perspective of this club started out 2-10 then it’s a pretty solid finish. That means over their past 14 games they have gone 8-6 (GASP above .500!). May has 28 games to play, 17 of those 28 games are against teams with sub .500 records as of right now. The challenges will be two series against the Diamondbacks, who are off to a hot start, as well as the home stand against the Nationals and Cardinals. The Nationals are currently under .500, but you know they are going to be a tough team to beat no matter what. Another point that could be tough is the road trip just prior to the home stand where they take on the Rays and the Orioles. I still think though that if this team keeps playing like they have been, then they could be at .500 or better by the end of May.

“The Padres got a little bit of everything on Tuesday night in a 13-7 rout against the Cubs at Wrigley Field that featured more than a handful of high-water marks.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 4-30-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“Wilfredo Boscan had a successful T-Pad debut and Tyson Ross started his rehab assignment, yet Tucson’s lack of offensive production led to a defeat. Despite a home run from Cody Decker, the Missions lost a close game 3-4. Matthew Wisler again dismantled the opposing offense; he collected the victory after throwing 6 sparkling innings. Alberth Martinez was the hero tonight for Fort Wayne; his grand slam in the bottom of the 8th led the TinCaps to victory.”

Seventh annual May Beards – Gaslamp Ball

“However, if you do choose to participate, it’s customary to shave completely as April wraps up and start the new month with a fresh canvas. But again, it’s not the end of the world if you keep the beard you already had.”
