Daily Friar 6.26.13 

Today will start a new look for the Daily Friar as I have taken your suggestions and will try my best to integrate all that into this. So a little tour of how this will look: I’ll start with my opening paragraph, which will then be followed by a “this day in baseball history” fact. I will try to keep it Padre-centric, but if I can’t find something then I will post something general. Next you will get all your Padres news from all over the web and this will then be followed by NL West news as well as any major rumors from around  Major League Baseball.

Lastly, I will have the results of NL West games from the night before and the games that will be played that day. This will be followed up by the current standings. So there you have it, I am always open to suggestions and will make any changes that I can to better suit what you all want to see. I will let the articles do the rest of the talking today as I would normally sum up the game in this paragraph, but today was a little different. I hope you enjoy the pieces below!

This Date In Baseball History: June 26, 1916
Cleveland players, in a game with the White Sox, wear numbers pinned to their sleeves, marking the first time players are identified by numbers corresponding to those on the scorecard. Jack Graney, leading off for the Tribe, is the first batter to wear a number in the 20th Century.” – Baseball Reference

Padres News:

Marquis roughed up, Padres fall to Phillies –

“They can’t all be gems though, as Marquis was again denied his 10th victory of the season. The Phillies got to him early in a 6-2 victory before a crowd of 24,695 at Petco Park.”

A preview of today’s game – ESPN

“Looking to keep him from leaving the yard Wednesday will be Robbie Erlin (1-0, 4.15) as he makes his second career start while filling in for the injured Clayton Richard.”

Everth Cabrera looking for July 2 return – NBC Sports

“Cabrera has been taking batting practice with no issues and this weekend is expected to start running the bases and fielding. The Padres haven’t decided whether he’ll need a rehab assignment before returning.”

NL West pursuing Ricky Nolasco – Ken Rosenthal at Fox Sports

“Four of the five teams in the West — the Giants, Dodgers, Padres and Rockies — have expressed interest in Nolasco, according to major-league sources.”

Should the Padres pursue Bud Norris or Matt Garza? – Call To The Pen

“Garza doesn’t fit that description, as his contract expires after the season. Norris does, though. The 28-year-old isn’t eligible to hit the open waters until 2016.”

A recent interview with Bud Black – Gaslamp Ball

Kyle Blanks is here to stay at this point. He’s performing and playing pretty much every day.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 6-25-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

Jaff Decker’s hot bat led the T-Pads to a close 6-5 victory. The Storm and the AZL Padres both lost by 1 run despite a home run by Jace Peterson for Lake Elsinore and strong start from Juan Oramas for the AZL Padres. Making his 3rd start for Fort Wayne, Adys Portillo pitched just 3 innings in the TinCaps eventual loss”

NL West Rumors:

Giants not making moves any time soon – SF Chronicle

“Giants general manager Brian Sabean said he and his staff have been more active identifying potential trade targets in the outfield, and for starters and relievers, but said no deal is close and the Giants will not pay steep June prices.”

Dodgers are pushing hard for Nolasco – MLBTR

“The Dodgers can easily absorb the remaining $6MM or so on Nolasco’s contract, and such a deal would prevent division rivals like the Padres and Giants from landing Nolasco.”

Top 10 batters and pitchers in the NL West – CBS Sports

“As for really deciding who merits inclusion, we’re focusing on players who are performing at least solidly in 2013 and have the track record and or pedigree to suggest that their 2013 numbers are sustainable or even headed upward.”
