Daily Friar 7.21.13 

Everything clicked for the Padres last night, as they were able to grab their first win of the second half. I have to say that I am impressed with the fact that they were able to get a win on the road and not run into a large losing streak. I don’t mean to come across as cynical in all this, but the team has only won three games this month. That is three games out of the sixteen that they have played. Maybe this is a turning point and things will start looking up, but we really can’t be too sure. I know the front office is looking at the team as sellers yet again, and when you hear that as a fan you have to think that they think that it is a lost year. I really don’t see it that way yet because they way this division is with a strong push the team could have a chance. I don’t know, maybe it is a pipe dream but it would be nice to have a little hope and a little something to look forward to in the next couple of months. Anyways the team won and they are looking to grab a series win today. Go Padres!

MLB News and Rumors:

Jake Peavy might be the big name on the market now – CBS Sports

“If the Garza deal gets done soon somewhere, Peavy should be the clear prize considering there’s no sign Cliff Lee is going anywhere, Yovani Gallardo has been inconsistent this year and Bud Norris isn’t in his category.”

Latest on Matt Garza – MLBTR

“For now it seems that Texas and Chicago made no progress in overcoming the snag that derailed their swap on Friday night, though the Rangers aren’t out of it.”

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.
