Daily Friar 5.7.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

All day I was anxiously waiting for the Padres game to start. I am usually excited every time there is a game on, but last night I was waiting because I knew they were going to win the game. I knew it was going to be well played and I knew that they weren’t going to disappoint. Coming off a series win against the Diamondbacks, the Padres were holding their heads high and showing the league that they can win games and make a name for themselves. They are doing that effectively as they beat the Miami Marlins in shutout fashion 5-0. Not only did the Padres beat the Marlins, but they also got some help in the standings as well as the Phillies beat the Giants and the Diamondbacks beat the Dodgers. What this means for the Padres is they are now 14-18 and sit in fourth place a half game up on the Dodgers and only five games back of the Giants. Also they are 3.5 games back in the wild card. Now I know it is too early in the season to be looking at standings, but it is nice to see that they are making a move early in the season. Last season the Padres took until June to start winning, this year they are in May and winning. Maybe it will be a sign of good things to come. You never know.

Cashner’s career night silences Marlins –

“The 26-year-old right-hander tossed 7 1/3 scoreless frames, allowing just four hits to the Marlins in a 5-0 Padres victory Monday night — a win that marked the club’s ninth in its last 12 games, moving the Friars out of the National League West basement.”

Rain can’t wash away the Padres’ surge – Union Tribune

“It’s the little things that morph into something big and that’s true with the surging Padres, winners of nine of their last 12: starters working deeper into games, batters moving runners over, bases being circled with purpose and not ignorance; making routine defensive plays, as well as an occasional spectacular one.”

Cameron Maybin is 10-14 days away from activities – NBC Sports

“Maybin had the splint removed from his right wrist last Friday, but he still needs to regain his strength and range of motion.”

Matt Wisler advances to Double-A San Antonio – Rant Sports

“Wisler is regarded as the Padres’ No. 8 prospect, and the right-handed pitcher has been promoted from Class A Advanced Lake Elsinore (California League), to Double-A San Antonio (Texas League) as of Monday. His promotion has been well-earned.”

Padres growing peppers in the bullpen – Fox 5 San Diego

“Yoder brought back the garden and has 12 different kinds of peppers growing in the bullpen ranging in degrees of spicy, including the Bhut Jolokia Pepper which sits just below Pepper Spray on the Scoville Scale which measures peppers’ hotness.”

Sisterhood of the Traveling Jersey makes its way to Yosemite – Gaslamp Ball

“I had heard all the tales of The Jersey. I had been in it’s presence. I’ve felt its power. So when I planned my trip to Yosemite and had a chance to bring the jersey to one of the most beautiful places on earth, how could I resist?”

Advice to Ownership: Pay Chase Headley – Chicken Friars

“Shipping off Headley would be another huge blow to any hope of getting back in the good graces of the San Diego community.”

Some thoughts on the past couple games – Padres Public

“The Padres followed a 5-1 win on Sunday with a 5-0 win last night.  Cashner and Thayer combined for the first Padres shutout of the season, and the first one thrown by San Diego’s pitching staff since Casey Kelly’s MLB debut on 27 August last year.”

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

“Our beloved Friars wrapped up their weekend series on Sunday looking like a team on the rise. Minus one very obvious problem (Clayton Richard), the rest of the weekend was full of positives to look forward to. Here are five that caught my eye.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 5-6-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“Every starting pitcher tonight tossed a quality start; for Walker Weickel and Donn Roach, it was their first quality start of the year.”
