Daily Friar 7.12.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

This is the doldrums of the season. That couple of days after the All Star break where the Padres aren’t playing baseball, and are waiting for the “second half” to begin. It could be a long second half for the team if the first half was any indication. However, that is what The Friarhood is here for. We are a support group to come to and complain about the team that you love so much. The trade deadline is looming as well as it is 19 days away now. Expect the trades to start picking up within the next week and continue on from there. But as history has shown the 29th-31st are always the most exciting. Speaking of trades, Josh Byrnes has some interesting comments in the first article below. Here are your Padres links for today:

Byrnes: ‘We don’t need to trade anyone’ –
“In short, the players on the roster who could help other teams — third baseman Chase Headley, closer Huston Street and outfielder Carlos Quentin, among others — are also players the Padres highly value moving forward into the second half and beyond.”

Like yo-yos, Padres rookies up, down – Union Tribune
“Indeed, players come, players go. Up and down. Back and forth.”

Padres again could see top talent gone by trade deadline –
“That is once again what is facing the Padres and their fans in the next couple of weeks. And with ownership still in flux, a mini-fire sale is still more likely than San Diego seeing what few stars it has stay at Petco Park.”

Huston Street open to trade to New York Mets? –
“Street is saying all the right things, and the Mets could certainly use a veteran reliever with his talents. It seems almost like the perfect match if he can squash any beef that he had with Geren.”

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.
