Daily Friar Banner Rennick

The Padres are stuck in a rut right now. And I think that is putting it lightly. The last two games have been utter blow outs. Not to mention that there have been more injuries piling up as well. This team is falling apart and falling apart quick. Who knows how long anyone will remain healthy anymore. It’s a complete crap shoot. I can’t think of a whole lot more to say, so here are your Padres links for today:

“Weaver held the Padres to three hits in seven innings in the Angels’ 7-2 victory in Friday’s Interleague opener.”

Stauffer, Darnell go on disabled list – Union Tribune
“To replace Stauffer and Darnell on the active roster, the Padres Friday activated left-handed pitcher Eric Stults, who they claimed off waivers from the Chicago White Sox on Thursday, and promoted right-handed reliever Nick Vincent from Triple-A Tucson.”

Interleague play coming to a TV near you – NCT
“The matchups aren’t always great, but this season the Padres draw the Angels, Rangers and Mariners at home as well as the A’s and Mariners on the road.”

Patience must be a Padres virtue – ESPN
“Alonso, San Diego’s cleanup hitter, has shown the patience to stick with his natural approach, which means hitting line drives gap to gap. He’s batting .286 and ranks fifth in the National League with 12 doubles, virtuous numbers to show for his equanimity.”

1987 – insidethepadres

Born and raised in San Diego and a Padres fan since day one. On that fateful night of September 6, 1989 when I came into this world, the game was on in the delivery room and the Padres beat the Astros and I have been forever engrained with Padre blood. I have followed sports my whole life and have written the Daily Friar for over a year and enjoy bringing all of you the news each morning.
