Daily Friar 7.7.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

The hard hitting Padres were silenced last night. The winning streak has come to an end, but six in a row for this team was pretty impressive. The problem is Bronson Aroyo pitches too damn slow! And it doesn’t take a physics expert to know that you have to hit a slow looping curveball just perfectly in order to do anything with it. Of course you have to make contact first to get to that point. The deep fly balls that were hit though died at the wall. There was only warning track power last night from both clubs. Yes the Reds hit three homeruns, but they all landed in the first row. If Carlos Quentin was Cameron Maybin we could have saved 2 of those. Here are your Padres links for today:

Padres go quiet as six-game win streak ends –
“The Padres, who entered their game against the Reds with three pinch-hit home runs in their last three games, fell 6-0 before a crowd of 26,016, as Cincinnati had little trouble producing some thunder of its own at spacious Petco Park.”

Many Padres players don’t know what a good owner can do – Union Tribune
“For many of these kids, all they know of an owner is the criminally disinterested John Moores, or, I guess for a time, the hamstrung Jeff Moorad.”

Cashner’s elbow is fine, but he’ll miss a month – NCT
“The bad news is that the hard-throwing right-hander has a strained lower lat muscle, the same injury that forced closer Huston Street to miss 29 games in May and has shelved left-hander Eric Stults for a month.”

Sale of team still a ways away – CBS Sports
“The sale of the Padres, which looked imminent earlier in the week, won’t be completed until after the All-Star break, according to two sources Friday night.”

MadFriars has their pitchers and players of the month
“Keep an eye on Burch Smith of Lake Elsinore and Matt Wisler of Fort Wayne both of whom should make top prospect lists in 2013.”

Gaslamp Ball has thoughts on the game
“With two games left in the series, we still have time to get another win streak going before the All Star Break and send Huston Street to Kansas City to represent a Padres team that is on the upswing.”

Glen Miller of The Friarhood talks ownership
“Expect this to get done quickly and for new onwnership to be announced soon. As Friars fans lets hope this is the beginning of an era of unprecedented success for the team we love.”
