Daily Friar 7.14.13 

Well that one definitely hurt last night. Coming off a game that was embarrassing to say the least, the Padres were embarrassed again. Friday night they lost 10-1 on very poor play all around and last night they lost 9-0 on absolutely no offense. This was evident by the fact that they were no hit by Tim Lincecum. Listen, I know it sucks to see it happen to our team but in the end you have to extend a congratulatory hand to him. As anemic as the Padres’ lineup is, a no hitter is still a no hitter. Today the Padres close out the first half of the season as we enter the All-Star break. Eric Stults is on the mound to try to grab a win for a team that so desperately needs something good to happen. Stults gave the Padres their first win after the ten game losing streak, so maybe he can break this streak as well. If he doesn’t then the Padres will enter the break having lost 15 of 16 games. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen.

Padres News:

Padres’ bats have no answer for Lincecum – Padres.com

“The Padres are the only franchise in the Majors without a no-hitter and were held without a hit for the eighth time in franchise history Saturday, losing, 9-0. The last time the Padres were no-hit was also against the Giants, against Jonathan Sanchez in July 2009 at AT&T Park.”

A preview of today’s game – ESPN

“Stults is 4-3 with a 5.40 ERA in 12 career starts versus the Giants, and he’s 0-1 with a 6.23 ERA in three this season.”

Padres promote Hynes; option Brach – Ian Edward Russell Smith of The Friarhood

“The pitching shuffle continues for the Padres as they enter the All Star Break, as the team has chosen to promote left-handed pitcher Colt Hynes from triple-A Tucson according to MLB.com’s own Corey Brock.”

Cameron Maybin is coming along nicely – NBC Sports

“Despite the step forward, he’s still not close to starting baseball activities. It sounds like he won’t be activated before August at the earliest.”

Trade Talk: San Diego Padres – Star Tribune (Minnesota)

“If they sell, it won’t be much. Chase Headley is their big ticket item but all signs point to the retaining him. They may unload pitchers like Jason Marquis, Clayton Richard, Edinson Volquez or reliever Luke Gregerson.”

An interview with Nick Vincent – MadFriars

“So far he is the same pitcher that we have seen in in the minors with a 1.69 ERA in 16 innings with 15 strikeouts and only five walks.”

Hedges and Fuentes face off in Futures Game – Gaslamp Ball

“Hedges, batting 9th, will be the battery mate for Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard on the U.S. team. Fuentes will play left field and lead off for the World team.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 7-13-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“Hunter Renfroe hit his first professional home run as Eugene steamrolled the AquaSox 8-0. Justin Hancock tossed a quality start, and the Storm rallied in the 8th to beat the Giants 5-3. San Antonio inched by the RockHounds due to a walk off home run by Rocky Gale. Both Tucson and Fort Wayne displayed little offense and little pitching.”

MLB and NL West News and Rumors:

Matt Garza could be traded soon – Buster Olney via Twitter

“This may well be Matt Garza’s last start with CHC, who are said to be making progress with at least 2 teams. Deal over break appears likely.”

Ken Rosenthal sums up a lot of rumors – MLBTR

“Echoing previous reports, Rosenthal lists the Dodgers, Nationals, Red Sox, and Rangers as the teams most prominently in on Garza.”

Born and raised in San Diego and a Padres fan since day one. On that fateful night of September 6, 1989 when I came into this world, the game was on in the delivery room and the Padres beat the Astros and I have been forever engrained with Padre blood. I have followed sports my whole life and have written the Daily Friar for over a year and enjoy bringing all of you the news each morning.
