Daily Friar 5.6.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

Good morning all! Hope you are all doing well after one of our many national days to drink. Here’s to hoping your hangover isn’t that bad. The Padres finish up the series with the Marlins today, hoping to salvage at least one game in the series. It seems like I have been saying that every final game of every series. I thought May would turn us around, but so far it hasn’t appeared that way. Of course though we did catch the Marlins at a time when they are streaking. Here are your Padres links for today:

Padres lose despite solid pitching, defense –
“In just 2 hours and 18 minutes, Buerhle threw his first complete game since 2010, allowing a run and five hits in the Marlins’ 4-1 victory over the Padres on Saturday night at Petco Park.”

Street joins 4 other pitchers on the DL – Union Tribune
“Closer Huston Street went on the disabled list Saturday for what the Padres expect will be more than the 15-day minimum while left-hander Cory Luebke contemplated his future and possible elbow reconstruction surgery.”

Luebke hope elbow injury is not serious – NCT
“Cory Luebke said Saturday he’s hopeful that, when the swelling subsides, the ligament in his left elbow won’t show severe damage. But the Padres’ young ace admits he also has started to think about the possibility he could undergo elbow surgery and miss a full season.”

MadFriars’ Pitchers of the Month for April
“A big reason for the Storm’s winning record this month was the solid performances they got from their starters and maybe the best closer in the system.”

Release Bartlett now, save later – Chicken Friars
“Bartlett has been pathetic offensively, and just as bad defensively. When you take a look at defensive statistics, Bartlett has committed five errors, and has a pathetic fielding percentage of .940.”

Post Game Hangover – Nater Tater
“The fact that I was at the game, enjoying being in San Diego, at the stadium with new friends, while meeting so many people that I’ve talked with a plenty, but never have met was a huge thrill.”

Gaslamp Ball shares their thoughts on the game
” saw a pretty decent game that went very quickly what with Clayton Richard and Mark Buehrle both pitching as if they had someplace else to be. I saw some OK defense and a little bit of timely hitting, but not timely enough.”
