Daily Friar 7.20.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

It appears that I missed a pretty good pitching performance. I would have watched Edinson Volquez baffle the Astros last night, but I was spending the day at the movies theater seeing The Dark Knight Rises…which is awesome by the way. That is also the reason for this being posted so late this morning. Anyway back to baseball. Again the Padres throw a one hitter, and in doing so still remain the only ball club to not have a no hitter to their name. A ball glancing off the glove stood between Volquez and a no hitter. But instead he is credited with a complete game shut out, which is still very impressive. Next up is the Colorado Rockies, let’s hope the wins keep coming. Here are your Padres links for today:

Union Tribune has trade rumors all summed up

Padres shut down Donn Roach – NCT
“The Padres have shut down pitching prospect Donn Roach for the rest of the season to keep his innings in check.”

“The Padres are planning to offer multiyear contract extensions to Carlos Quentin and Huston Street and will likely make such proposals before the trade deadline, reports Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.”

Potential trade deadline steal: Chase Headley – CBS Sports
“So the Padres aren’t in full-on sell mode, but they do have one player who should be attracting tons of interest from any club without a star at the hot corner: Chase Headley.”
