Daily Friar 5.4.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

The Padres had an off day yesterday, but that didn’t meant they stayed quiet. The trade market was all a buzz yesterday as the Padres made a move with the Angels. I won’t spoil anything here if you haven’t read about it yet, but the article is below on who was moved. Most of the team was busy yesterday as well getting out in the community, which is always a great thing. The Padres start a series with the Miami Marlins tonight and welcome back Heath Bell to Petco. Heath has not been the same since he left, let’s hope we still don’t have to face him tonight. Here are your Padres links for today:

Bell toils in visiting bullpen this weekend – Union Tribune
“Bell arrives in San Diego with an 0-3 record, an 11.74 ERA and three blown saves, the latter of which represents the total number of failures he had in 50 save opportunities in 2010.”

Trade of Frieri to Angels could affect middle infield – NCT
“The move gives the Padres more flexibility if they decide to release Hudson or Bartlett, both of whom have club options for 2013. Team sources have confirmed that neither player is in the Padres’ long-term plans. Both could be released before the season ends.”

Tim Stauffer’s father presents gift to little league squads – Times Union

MadFriars presents their players of the month for April
“Some brutal months by players like Matt Clark and Jaff Decker who normally put up big numbers as only Lake Elsinore had a winning record by what many believed is one of baseball’s top farm systems going into the season.”

Mark Prior is looking for a comeback with the Red Sox – Chicken Friars
“This is only a Padres-relate story in the fact that Mark Prior signed with the Padres for a short time during his second comeback attempt and he is from San Diego.”

How the Padres spent their off day – Gaslamp Ball
“Off days are the worst. Especially after a game like last night’s, which ranked first on the Padres 2012 Game Rankings.”

Daily Farm Round-Up from Wednesday’s games – Matt Baker of The Friarhood
“Vince Belnome and the T-Pads turn the tables on the Rainiers and win a slugfest. Michael Wing hits a clutch homer to deliver the Storm an extra-inning victory.”
