Daily Friar 7.10.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

Normally I know what I am going to write about before I sit down and put the words down on the computer. During the All-Star break that is a little hard to do. I normally will make some comments about last night’s game, or a potential trade in the works and rumors surrounding it. However, during the break that isn’t the case. Prince Fielder won the home run derby last night. I find it funny that the chose captains only combined for oen home run between them. Maybe too much pressure, I don’t know. But one of them was Robinson Cano who won it last year. So the game is tonight, and I am predicting the National League to get slaughtered. Hopefully Huston Street will see an inning of work in there. Here are your Padres links for today:

Street soaking in first trip to Midsummer Classic –
“The Padres’ closer said he is honored to finally be selected as an All-Star, and you could easily tell how much he was enjoying his first taste of the experience.”

Tate might finally be on the way up for Padres – Union Tribune
“You want to be impressed, to see it as a sign of a kid who has finally found a comfort zone in professional baseball. Given the history here, however, you worry it could instead be ill-begotten arrogance.”

Street lastest in long line of closers to make All-Star team – NCT
“Now, here’s Street, flying well below the radar on a 53-loss team without a whole lot of fanfare to go with 24 innings pitched this year, the fewest among any pitchers selected to this year’s game.”

Pirates, Reds, Indians interested in Quentin – MLBTR
“As Heyman notes, the Padres would need to acquire a return which they deem more valuable than the draft pick Quentin could net them.”

Deal for ownership reportedly done; Mickelson still in – The Inquisitr
“If all goes according to plan, the group will receive approval at the owners
