Daily Friar 5.31.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

I have one word to say about yesterday’s game and that is: wow. We actually had a lead going into the 9th inning and we blew it. I am currently in Las Vegas on vacation for this week, and every casino I went in to I went straight to the sports betting because the Padres game was always on. Kind of sad to me that half of San Diego can’t watch the games on TV, but Las Vegas has FSSD. Anyways, I would go to the TV to check the score. I saw it was 6-3, then 6-5, then I was like okay we got this, on to the next hotel. Get in there and the game was over. I checked my phone and found out we lost. Sad really, I have come to terms that we are the worst team in baseball. No doubt about that. Here are your Padres links for today:

4th time getting drated was the charm for Andrew Cashner – Sports Illustrated
“Before the million-and-a-half signing bonus or the relief appearance in which he threw 10 straight pitches of at least 101 miles per hour, Padres pitcher Andrew Cashner endured four straight drafts in which he received undulating annual assessments of his ability and potential.”

Tom Krasovic had a twitter poll question for his followers – insidethepadres
“I put the following double-question to the Tweeps: Do the losses still hurt? Or, do you shake them off as inconsequential, inevitable outcomes within a rebuilding season?”

Trade Candidate: Carlos Quentin – MLBTR
