Daily Friar 6.13.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

The Padres are the most intersting team in baseball right now. They don’t always sweep teams, but when they do it is against the best team in the National League. That’s right the “lowly” Padres that everybody forgets about swept the Braves and are looking ahead to a very important Arizona series this weekend. Think about this, the Padres are now two games under .500 and are five games behind the first place Diamondbacks (three behind Colorado and two behind San Francisco). So if the Padres can sweep the DBacks this weekend then everything changes. They will be over .500 for the first time in forever and could possibly jump in the standings. This team is good, and Padres fans we know they are good, they just need everything to click all at once. And right now they are getting everything to work. In spite of some crucial injuries other players are stepping up. The bullpen is taxed, but the starters are going deep into the game. Look at the last series, Marquis went 7.2 innings, Cashner went 8, and Volquez miraculously went 7 yesterday. It was quite the series and I hope it carries over into the weekend. The Padres have their first day off today in 20 games and it is well deserved and much needed. Let’s all enjoy what has happened and look forward to an exciting series against the Diamondbacks

Volquez goes seven strong as Padres sweep Braves –

“So in only Vincent’s third appearance for San Diego this season, he struck out Upton looking for the final out as the Padres defeated the Braves, 5-3, on Wednesday afternoon in front of 22,316 fans at Petco Park.”

Judge won’t decline lawsuit – ESPN

“Judge Ronald Dresnick denied a motion to dismiss the case from Carlos Acevedo, who along with clinic operator Tony Bosch and five others were named in a March civil suit filed by MLB to get information about the PED scandal that involves more than 20 players.”

Vincent saves Padres by missing on pitch – Union Tribune

“After four straight cut fastballs, Vincent meant to throw his four-seamer down and away. Instead, the pitch ran in to the inside corner of the plate – freezing Upton, who helplessly watched plate umpire Brian O’Nora’s strike call to end the game.”

Who should be on the NL All-Star team? (a couple Padres make the cut) – Fangraphs

“There are a lot of great players who didn’t make the cut, and there are certainly judgment calls here that could have gone another direction, but overall, I think this is a pretty good set of players who would represent the National League quite well.”

Welcome home Logan Forsythe – Padres 360

“As we finished talking with Logan, we let him know that Jedd may be hurt and asked if he was ready if the Padres called tonight. He said he hated to hear that Jedd may be hurt – you never want that for a teammate – but if the Padres called – he was ready.”

Cabrera and Gyorko combine for great tandem – Beyond The Box Score

“The Padres seem to have found a successful middle infield pairing in rookie 2B Jedd Gyorko and SS Everth Cabrera. The pair rank third and fourth on the Padres in wRC+ (min. 100 PA), respectively.”

The jersey goes back to Staton’s roots – Gaslamp Ball

“It was an exhilarating, and fun ride with the jersey. We all “joke” about its magical properties, but it was special to spend time with a jersey that has spent time with so many great fans all over the globe.”

Rapid fire questions with Andy Masur – Padres Public

“Watch as Andy gets grilled by the Avenger-in-Chief regarding all things Chicago and gives some praise to the greatest bronze in San Diego.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 6-12-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“The TinCaps and the Missions played very similar games today. Both teams committed 3 errors, both teams had anemic offenses, and both teams were blown out. In stark contrast, the Storm played a very good game against the Quakes. Led by 3 hits from Travis Jankowski and a home run from Austin Hedges, the Storm won 8-2. The T-Pads lost a close game in the 12th.”
