Daily Friar 5.14.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

Once again the Padres had a chance to take a series during the rubber game. And once again the team failed to do so. Also, stop me if you’ve heard this before, the pitching was outstanding but the offense couldn’t score enough runs. I’m surprised the Padres even have a team. We can attract pitchers to the team because of Petco. But why would a star pitcher want to stay here if they can’t get any run support for a win? The Phillies only scored 3 runs yesterday, that should be easy to overcome. Enough of my complaining, here are your Padres links for today:

Suppan effective, but offense limited by Hamels –
“The Padres are still looking for that kind of savior to rescue a scuffling offense that hasn’t managed more than three runs in the past eight games, including a 3-2 loss to the Phillies before a sold-out crowd of 45,442 at Citizens Bank Park.”

Kotsay has still got some kid to him – Union Tribune
“So much had Kotsay embraced his new role as a dependable left-handed bat off the bench, however, that he’d feigned indignation when informed that he was starting a game during the last homestand.”

Padres on Deck: At Washington – NCT
“The Padres’ Tim Stauffer, pictured during a game last season, will make his first start of the season Monday in Washington. Stauffer spent the first 5 1/2 weeks of the season on the disabled list with a strained right elbow.”

Chase Headley hits stride in San Diego – The Good Point
“As for the third baseman himself, whose maturation as a switch hitter with an ability to put himself on base has made him more dangerous than ever, an All-Star berth may even be in order. Not exactly a step back.”

The Padres and their middle infield mess – Chicken Friars
“Unfortunately, 2012 has been an even bigger disaster for Hudson, Bartlett, and the rest of San Diego
