Daily Friar 6.5.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

How long are the Padres going to let Clayton Richard hurt the team? Here we are in the start of June and he only has one win. That one win didn’t even come off a start; it came out of a 17-inning marathon where he was used as an emergency pitcher. Clayton Richard has made eight starts this season and only two of them he has been able to make it six innings and only one has he put up less than five runs. This does not bode well for a team that has a weak starting rotation and needs a consistent starter. I think it’s time to look at other options because I don’t trust him on the mound. He let a lead get away last night that ultimately ended in a loss for the Padres. We are starting to lose easy games again and it doesn’t look good knowing that we can be in last place again tonight if we can’t stop the Dodgers. What scares me about the Dodgers right now is they are riding high on how well Yasiel Puig is feasting on Padres pitching. I do think he will come down to earth though in the next week, but that’s another story. The Padres look to salvage the series tonight on the back of Jason Marquis. Hopefully he can get that sinker working and win us a ball game.

A preview of tonight’s game – ESPN

Will Bosch’s word be enough? – Ken Rosenthal at Fox Sports

“The alleged users, of course, are not necessarily beacons of integrity themselves — many, in fact, may be liars of the highest order. But the question is whether baseball can prove that A-Rod, Braun, et al, indeed purchased PEDs from Biogenesis.”

MLBPA issues statement – Yahoo

“The Commissioner’s Office has assured us that no decisions regarding discipline have been made or will be made until those interviews are completed. It would be unfortunate if anyone prejudged those investigations.”

Everth Cabrera and Yasmani Grandal could face suspension – Ian Edward Russell Smith of The Friarhood

“If both Cabrera and Grandal are suspended for their connection to Biogenesis, it would be the first time ever that the Padres organization would have two players suspended simultaneously within the same season.”

Who would replace Cabrera and Grandal? – Union Tribune

“What would the Padres do were they to lose shortstop Everth Cabrera and catcher Yasmani Grandal to suspensions emanating from Major League Baseball’s investigation into the Biogenesis Clinic in Miami?”

“He’s considered day-to-day and could return to the lineup as soon as Wednesday.”

Part two of the interview with Kiley McDaniel – MadFriars

“In Part 2 of our interview with’s Kiley McDaniel, we talk about draft rankings, the mental side of the game, and who the Padres might take in the first round.”

What to do with the Candy Factory – Padres Public

“There’s still nothing in there…For all I know, the Padres may very well just be using it as a giant storage shed now.”

2013 player draft preview – Cheri Bell of The Friarhood

“With the start of the 2013 MLB Amateur draft just two days away it is time to make a stab at figuring out what the brain trust in the front office of the San Diego Padres will be doing with the #13 pick on Thursday.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 6-4-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“All 3 Padres affiliates that played tonight won tight ballgames. Frank Garces delivered a dominating 10 strikeout performance for Lake Elsinore while the Storm bats put 7 runs on the board as Lake Elsinore won 7-5. The Missions won a very close game due to the right arm of Matt Wisler and the clutch bats of Rocky Gale and Rico Noel. Cameron Maybin led the way in Tucson’s 5-4 victory with his 3rd home run of the year.”
