Daily Friar 8.3.13 

Well as predicted last night, the Padres broadcast (Dick Enberg) would not shut up about how great the Yankees are. The good news is that your lowly Padres were able to beat the Evil Empire in very convincing fashion. It’s always fun to show up a team that is supposedly better than you are. It’s even more fun to do it when there is a sellout crowd watching, and since it’s New York you know all the media is watching too. This is supposed to be Mariano Rivera’s farewell tour, but as far as I’m concerned he can go spend it at the beach while he’s here. So the game didn’t start off too hot as the Yanks did score two early runs. However, Andrew Cashner locked down and put a stop to them and it was all fun and games after that. The Padres had three home runs on the night. One came off the bat of Logan Forsythe, then Jedd Gyorko and finally Will Venable. Also Everth Cabrera went 4-5 tying his career high for hits in a game. It’s too bad that he will most likely miss the rest of the season once Monday rolls around. Anyways, both teams are at it again tonight and hopefully the Padres can continue to win and show the Yankees that a small market team can play with the big boys.

The latest on Biogenesis – New York Daily News

“A report that claimed MLB had given the Biogenesis-linked players until 6 p.m. on Sunday to accept the 50-game suspensions is inaccurate, a source told The News.”

Born and raised in San Diego and a Padres fan since day one. On that fateful night of September 6, 1989 when I came into this world, the game was on in the delivery room and the Padres beat the Astros and I have been forever engrained with Padre blood. 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.
