Daily Friar 5.2.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

The ongoing joke in my house when the Padres score a ton of runs is that they should save some for the next game. The joke becomes reality because more often than not it seems that the Padres always have trouble scoring the next day after a blowout. I don’t quite understand it, but it happens a lot. Tuesday the Padres put thirteen runs on the board and won in convincing fashion, this came after only scoring three on Monday in a loss. Then last night they came out and had a lot of trouble scoring. I was excited coming into this game with Andrew Cashner on the mound, I thought he would be able to shut down the Cubs. I was completely wrong as it was his opponent, Scott Feldman who shut down the Padres offense going a complete nine innings and allowing only three hits. Two of those hits were home runs, but they were only solo shots unfortunately. Chase Headley had one as he is making up for lost time last month, and the other was by Jedd Gyorko who finally got his first homer of his career. The Padres and Cubs are at it again today. And probably have started by the time you finished reading this.

Facing former club, Cashner roughed up –

“Whether it was too much adrenaline against his former team, spotty command or bad pitches in bad situations, former Cubs first-round pick Andrew Cashner faltered during his first start against his former team in the Padres’ 6-2 loss at Wrigley Field.”

A preview of today’s game – Union Tribune

“The Padres need a win Thursday to gain as split against the Cubs before heading back to San Diego to open a three-game weekend series against N.L. West division rival Arizona Friday night at Petco Park.”

Chase Headley to get record offer – ESPN

“The San Diego Padres are prepared to offer Chase Headley a multiyear contract that would make the third baseman the highest-paid player in franchise history, according to U-T San Diego.”

Headley won’t negotiate during the season –

“Padres third baseman Chase Headley said on Thursday that he “loves playing in San Diego” and was flattered to hear that ownership wants to keep him here long-term. He just doesn’t want to discuss a contract extension during the season.”

Bud Black says he will miss the “aura” of Wrigley’s visitor clubhouse – Chicago Tribune

“I think when you come to this park, all of its nuances are its charm. I like the walkway (from the clubhouse to the field). I like the eight turns. I like how it smells, which isn’t very good, but I like it. I do.”

Robbie Erlin is being sent back to AAA – Santa Cruz Sentinel

“It was reported by UT San Diego’s Bill Center, who noted right-handed reliever Brad Boxberger has been promoted from Tucson and is expected to arrive in time for Thursday afternoon’s finale to the four-game series.”

Do the Padres have a catching quandary? – Through The Fence Baseball

“That begs the question: What happens when Grandal comes off suspension if Nick Hundley is still producing at a high caliber?”

Andrew Cashner won last night. Seriously. – Padres Public

“So I come before you on May 2nd, 2013 to say, ‘Andrew Cashner was terrible last night. But at least he didn’t get injured.'”

April hitter/pitcher of the month – Richard Dorsha of The Friarhood

“Close call between the lefty, the catcher and the “Norf” but Alonso takes the title by leading the team in both HR (tied) and RBI.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 5-1-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“Both Dean Anna and Brandon Allen hit their 4th home runs of the year yet it was not enough for the T-Pads as they fell 4-2 against the Rainiers.”
