Daily Friar 5.7.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

I sincerely believed that May would be the Padres month. Opening it up with 2 wins after a lousy April, I thought that they could turn things around. Then the Marlins came into town and swept us fairly easily. We gave them some fight, but the fish got away. The Rockies come into town next. As far as I’m concerned with the way the Padres have been playing, I’m not even sure I can feel confident in saying we should win at least a couple of these games. It’s the sad reality we live in now. Also let’s give a shout out to fellow Friarhood writer and today’s birthday boy, Jeremy Nash. Happy birthday! Here are your Padres links for today:

Cashner, catcher can’t contain Fish late –
“The Marlins went on to score three more runs in the inning in their 6-3 victory Sunday afternoon. Improving to 14-14 with their sixth consecutive victory, the Marlins completed a three-game sweep of the Padres (9-20), who tied the Twins for the most losses in baseball.”

Padres record is horrible – Union Tribune
“Less than 30 games into the season, the Padres have already had five losing streaks of three or four games.”

Without Street, Padres eye closer by committee – NCT
“In his absence, the Padres plan to use Andrew Cashner, Luke Gregerson and Dale Thayer to close games.”

Yonder Alonso improving at the plate – Chicken Friars
“Over his last 10 games, Alonso has gone 15 for 40 (.375), and emerged as one of San Diego
