Daily Friar 7.24.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

So that’s what it feels like to lose a game, and badly. It’s been a while since the Padres lost that bad to a team, and looked terrible doing it. It is pretty obvious to state that Clayton Richard was nowhere near the Clayton we have seen recently. Much more wild than he has been in the past, and that cost us in the first inning. I was watching that first inning just waiting for it to mercifully end. Then when Mark Kotsay made the “catch” I breathed a sigh of relief. Then we came back from commercial and the inning wasn’t over at all. It was a rough night and here’s hoping that we can get some revenge tonight. Here are your Padres links for today:

Richard has rough night in loss to Giants –
“On the heels of a 5-2 homestand, giving them momentum for a 10-game road trip, the Padres fell flat against the Giants, dropping a 7-1 decision before a sold-out crowd.”

Quentin skips first start since signing new deal – NCT
“The Padres are protecting Quentin’s grumpy knees as well as their long-term investment. Black admitted it’s tough selling Quentin, who has never played more than 131 games in a season, on sitting.”

Padres intend to keep Volquez, who had been a trade target – John Heyman
“Edinson Volquez, who once looked like a prime trade candidate, now appears likely to stay in San Diego. The Padres have gotten inquiries about Volquez but intend to keep him, said people familiar with their thinking.”

MadFriars interviews Robert Lara
“For nearly every player in the minor leagues there comes a time when they are going to be called into an office by their team and told they are being released. Their career and dream of becoming a major league player is finished.”

The Padre killer this time around is Pablo Sandoval – Chicken Friars
“In his home ballpark, Sandoval owns a career .330 batting average with 33 home runs and 142 RBI.”

Gaslamp Ball thinks Quentin’s signing still seems kinda good
“Quentin himself has some question marks about injuries and defense. But, you know that he’s an experienced major league hitter who has shown the capability of being a run producer.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 7-23-12 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood
“It was a rough night offensively for the entire San Diego organization. The San Diego Padres and the Tucson Padres only collected 7 hits combined, and the Emeralds could only garner 5 hits. Nathan Freiman hit his 21st homerun as the Missions avoided the sweep.”
