Daily Friar 6.7.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

Every year every team has that other team that is a thorn in their side. No matter how good or bad a season is going usually you can grab a win or two from every team you play. But there is always that one that will give you fits no matter what. This year for the Padres it is the Colorado Rockies. Last night was the seventh meeting between both teams this season and the previous six all went in the Rockies’ favor. Last night the Padres got a little redemption in twelve innings as they finally beat the men in purple. I alluded to it yesterday that this is a very important series for the Padres right now since they are so close to .500 and are playing in the division. In fact, over the next two weeks the Padres can make a huge dent in the division standings if they so choose. After this Rockies series, which there are three games left including today, they play the Braves, the Dbacks, the Giants, and finally the Dodgers. That is thirteen of their next sixteen games against the division. This is the time for guys to get hot and stay hot and get us on a huge winning streak and make a push. The only thing holding back the Padres right now is the Padres. They have the talent, but can all that talent come together at once? That remains to be seen.

Padres finally solve Rockies in 12 innings –

“The Padres snapped their six-game drought against the National League West-rival Rockies with a 6-5 victory in 12 innings on Thursday night, thanks to a rally that saw Chase Headley scamper home on a controversial safe call at first base.”

A preview of today’s game – ESPN

“The Padres, who look to match a season high with their third straight road win, counter with struggling Edinson Volquez (4-5, 5.35).”

Padres draft trio of position players – Union Tribune

“Thursday, it was all about position players. Needing top-tier talent in that department, the Padres took two outfielders — including Mississippi State’s Hunter Renfroe with the 13th overall pick — and an infielder to begin Chad MacDonald’s second draft with the club.”

Yonder Alonso out for a month with fractured hand – NBC Sports

“X-rays on Alonso’s hand came back clean, but the club ordered a CT scan after soreness persisted, and that exam revealed the bad news.”

Blanks stays put as Alonso hits DL – Ian Edward Russell Smith of The Friarhood

“This turned out to be a decision made too quickly as it turned out that first baseman Yonder Alonso’s progress with his right hand contusion had taken a turn for the worse, and as such Alonso will be moved around instead of Blanks.”

The latest on biogenesis scandal – MLBTR

“Rosenthal also reports that the Joint Drug Agreement gives Bud Selig the power to issue suspensions even in the absence of a positive test, if there is “just cause” and “sufficient evidence” of their usage and purchasing of PEDs.”

A review of The Pier – Padres 360

“Overall, we recommend The Pier. Good food, attentive staff, and a terrific view. You might want to stroll up there during Batting Practice to ensure you get a seat of choice.”

Welcome back Cameron Maybin – Padres Public

“Of course, what does Maybin do in his first game back? He goes 2 for 5 with 2 RBI and 2 stolen bases. Oh, and a Willie Mays style, game saving, over-the-shoulder catch at the warning track in the Bottom of the 11th that preserved the tie and allowed San Diego to win an inning later.”

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

“7 starters for Fort Wayne recorded a hit as the TinCaps won 5-3. Lake Elsinore collected 10 hits, but they only managed to score 2 runs in their eventual loss. Despite Kalian Sams’ powerful night at the plate and a quality start from Jose De Paula, the Missions were unable to beat the RoughRiders. Cody Decker went yard and Robbie Erlin allowed just 3 hits over 5 innings, but bad defense did Tucson in as they lost 9-3.”
