Daily Friar 5.14.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

The Padres had a day off yesterday to clear their heads of the sweep before heading off to Baltimore for a two game set that starts tonight. Before the sweep at the hands of the Rays, the Padres were 16-18 and sitting pretty good to maybe touch .500 again. After the sweep they have fallen to 16-21 and are back to clawing their way to the .500 mark again. The Orioles are putting together a good season so far as they are sitting at 23-15, just a game back of the Yankees in the AL East. As far as standings go for the Padres, the only good thing is that they aren’t in last place for the moment. They have a full game lead over the Dodgers, but are still 6.5 games back of the Giants. A two game sweep of the Orioles would be great to see before having to come home and face the Cardinals and Nationals. After that Rays series though I am not entirely convinced that it can happen. I am going to keep my expectations low and reserved for the next week and a half because of the quality of the teams. But you never know, this team has given us surprises in the past and maybe, just maybe they can put up a winning record over this next stretch.

Cashner rides momentum into matchup vs O’s –

“On Tuesday, the Padres turn to their promising righty, Andrew Cashner, who will look to build on one of his best starts in his young career. Cashner tossed 7 1/3 scoreless frames last Monday against the Marlins, allowing just four hits and three walks while striking out four.”

Anthony Bass on success – The Success Project

“At the same time, this game is also a kid’s game. We never must forget that. What attracted us to the game at a young age? It was fun! We keep the atmosphere loose in the clubhouse by playing music, dancing, singing, laughing, etc.”

An interview with Dick Enberg – CBS Baltimore

“Steve asked Dick Enberg if he has ever called a game at Camden Yards. Dick said he has never called a game at Camden Yards and is really looking forward to calling a game in our beautiful baseball stadium.”

An interview with Jaff Decker – MadFriars

“A severe foot injury cost him nearly all of 2012. Decker is now finally healthy and after a slow April is beginning to show a return to form hitting .366/.458/.577 in May going into Monday night’s game with an .842 OPS for the season.”

Rumors about the 1998 retro game – Gaslamp Ball

“If the unconfirmed rumor is to be believed, Mel Proctor and Mark Grant will be calling the game for Fox Sports San Diego on 1998 Retro Night. Longtime Padres broadcaster Bob Chandler will work the radio.”

Which Padre cap color do you wear? – Chicken Friars

“I was a bit suprised, there are plenty of styles and color combinations.  So bring your cap to the stadium, and pick the color and style you want – its the latest trend.”

Huston we have a problem – Padres Public

“It was bound to happen.  He had been flirting with disaster all season.  The law of averages finally caught up with him.  On Saturday closer Huston Street blew his first save as a Padre.  Making it especially galling, the winning rally began with two out and no one on base.  Walk.  Home Run.  Boom.  Thanks for playing.”

Five good things from the Tampa series – Jeremy Nash of The Friarhood

“The series started off with two painful losses, the second even more heartbreaking than the first, and concluded with another loss after having the lead.  But even through all that there were five things that caught my positive eye.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 5-13-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“Walker Weickel turned in an effective start for Fort Wayne as the TinCaps skate by the Dragons 5-4. The offensive struggles for Lake Elsinore continued in their loss to the Quakes; Luis Domoromo provided nearly their entire offensive output. Donn Roach was blown up in a loss to the Hooks. Roach experienced his worst start of the year. Thad Weber pitched a very good start as the T-Pads won their 3rd game in a row.”
