Daily Friar 6.9.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

Eric Stults gave us another great outing yesterday as the Padres beat the Rockies 4-2. He allowed two runs, only one earned, through seven innings of play en route to the win. Both Kyle Blanks and Everth Cabrera had awesome games as well, so much so that Cabrera is now hitting .300 on the season. I noticed after the game a lot of negativity coming from Padres fans over social media, even with a win some people can’t be happy. I don’t know if it is just the internet age making everybody cynical, or if there is legitimate frustration for a team that we are going to nag about even if they win. Now I didn’t get a chance to watch the game, but I did look over the box score and the only things that I can see that frustrate me from that are RISP numbers, defense, and Chase Headley. The Padres went 4-18 with RISP yesterday, and the Rockies were 0-15. Something must have been in the water up there in Colorado because nobody wanted any RBIs on their stat line. Defensively there were three errors for the Padres and one accounted for a run. Lastly, Chase Headley finally got a hit and an RBI, but again left five on base. Not something you want from a guy that is constantly penciled in at the number three hole. How long does it take before Chase gets a day off? I leave you with this final thought too: Clayton Richard is pitching today, how long is his leash?

Backed by Cabrera, Stults stymies Rockies –

“But having an idea of how to pitch in the high altitude of Colorado — experience born from rough outings there — paid dividends for Stults on Saturday as he allowed one run over seven innings, and the Padres hung on for a 4-2 victory before a crowd of 34,590.”

A preview of today’s game – ESPN

“Richard seeks his first win as a starter while helping guide San Diego to a fourth victory in five tries as it faces the host Colorado Rockies in the finale of this four-game series Sunday.”

Headley could get day off – Union Tribune

“It will be Headley’s first day off since the third baseman came off the disabled list April 17. He missed the start of the season with a fracture to the bone at the tip of his left thumb.”

Padre recall Burch Smith – NBC Sports

“Smith made three starts with the Padres earlier this season, but is expected to be used as a reliever. Since being demoted to the minors last month, he has a 2.70 ERA over 10 innings at the Triple-A level.”

Padres’ 2013 draft class rich with quality hitters –

“The Padres’ 2013 Draft class is highlighted by outfielder Hunter Renfroe, whom they took with their first pick — the 13th overall selection. The team believes he can do a little bit of everything.”

A look at the Padres 12th round pick Rod Boykin – Montgomery Advertiser

“The Montgomery native didn’t even need 24 hours to decide his future. He had signed to play football at Alabama State in February, but head coach Reggie Barlow won’t see the speedster when summer training camp opens.”

The Future El Paso Whatever’s: Part 3 Relief Pitchers – The Niños of the Padres

“This is his first year in the Majors. It looks like he’s a pretty good minor league pitcher though. He was called up from AA originally and then demoted to AAA after a few weeks. Maybe this trip time with the Padres will be better for him.”

Kalian Sams promoted to AAA – Gaslamp Ball

“Although his bat cooled to more reasonable numbers, Sams was promoted to AAA Tucson after little more than a month at San Antonio.”

Pressing with Chase Headley – Padres Public

“Outman didn’t look like he was trying to give Chase anything to hit but when Chase decided to swing at pitch #2 it allowed him to nibble with pitch #3 which Outman got for a strike. It went down hill from there.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 6-8-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“After a 12 inning pitcher’s duel that saw Joe Ross turn in his best start of the year, the TinCaps prevailed due to a walk off single from Maxx Tissenbaum. Despite a quality start from James Needy, Lake Elsinore was unable to beat the Blaze. The Missions were shutdown offensively; they recorded 5 hits and 1 run. Tucson was unable to tame the River Cats’ offense as they lost 10-5.”
