Daily Friar 5.27.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

Well that Arizona series didn’t exactly go as planned. I was hoping for at the very least a series win, but the Padres were only able to take one game from the snakes. The Padres did have some fight in them as they kept trying to get back into the game whenever they were down, but the game ultimately ended with the Diamondbacks taking the win and the series. Carlos Quentin seems to be coming around (I hope). He went 2-4 yesterday with a game tying home run in the fifth inning. Today he will be in the lineup at DH, which should be good to take some pressure off his knees. Speaking of today, it is game one of a two game set up in Seattle against the Mariners. After these two games both teams will head down to San Diego for another two game set. Yes the same two teams in back to back series. I’m still trying to wrap my head around it, but that is what the schedule makers have decided this year. Since it is Memorial Day all teams will be wearing a camo infused jersey. But since it has to be standard for all teams around MLB, the Padres aren’t going to be able to wear their home camo jerseys. Instead they have to wear their grey jersey with camo lettering, which looks exactly like the camo jersey they normally wear. So for the ESPN writer that said our jersey was ugly, well tough luck because your team is wearing it too today. Happy Memorial Day everyone and remember those who have fallen to give us these freedoms that we take for granted.

Rallies fall short as Padres get edged in finale –

“The D-backs edged the Padres, 6-5, in the finale to win the weekend series two games to one. The Padres have lost four of their last five games, and now travel to Seattle for a short two-game series that starts Monday.”

A preview of today’s game –

“The right-hander [Aaron Harang] will start Monday at Safeco Field opposite Padres lefty Clayton Richard. The meeting is the first of a four-game home-and-home series San Diego and Seattle will engage in this week.”

Padres option Tommy Layne back to AAA – NBC Sports

“Layne was only in the majors for a couple of days. The southpaw should get another shot later this summer.”

Everth Cabrera emerging as dynamic threat – Rant Sports

“The home run on Saturday follows a blast from the 26-year old on Friday, and gives him a cool .364/.364/.818 triple-slash with five extra-base hits in 22 at-bats against the desert snakes in Arizona.”

Daily Farm Report: 5-26-13 – MadFriars

“Tucson lost by 15 in a game that wasn’t as close as the score would lead you to believer. San Antonio split a double-header with another strong start from Matt Andriese. The Storm get blasted while the TinCaps snapped their losing streak.”

Enberg’s Twilight – Chicken Friars

“You want to get Enberg to pass the torch? Don’t mask your weak complaints under the banner of a respectful shift.”

Clayton Richard to return today – Ian Edward Russell Smith of The Friarhood

“Pitcher Edinson Volquez was scheduled to start Monday night’s game against the Mariners, but has been pushed back to a Tuesday start following the club’s announcement regarding Richard.”

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

“The Padres visited their house of horrors that is Chase Field in Arizona of the weekend and lost two of three to the Diamondbacks.”

Below are a couple new art pieces from Jeremy Nash

Vedder Cup promo

“Today’s the day, boys and girls! The Padres kick off a four game home on home series against the hated Mariners today to defend the title of the coveted ‘Vedder Cup’.”

The Return

“Drew this in anticipation of Wednesday’s game. Not only is it the first home game for the Padres of this years Vedder Cup, but marks the return of suspended catcher Yasmani Grandal.”
