Daily Friar 8.6.13 

There you have it folks! The Yankees came into town for the first time since 2002 and the Padres sent them packing with only one win for them. This is the first time that the Padres have taken a series from the Yankees in history. The teams have only matched up five times since the Padres have become a team in 1969 and one of those was in the World Series. So four regular season matchups between these teams and the Padres had previously only won two of the nine games. Now they have improved that to have won four of twelve. We can thank some pretty solid starting pitching for the wins too. Andrew Cashner was superb Friday night and Ian Kennedy was great Sunday as well in his first Padre start. Even Tyson Ross, who was tagged with the loss Saturday, was phenomenal in his start. If this can continue into the future then maybe, just maybe the Padres will become a team that can scare other teams. At this point though I think the team is going to play a very good spoiler. This is the fourth series win in a row and who knows when it will end. The Orioles come into town now for a two game set. The Padres will have to deal with them without Everth Cabrera.

Padres News:

Kennedy victorious in Padres debut, tops Yanks – Padres.com

“Kennedy was solid in his first career start for the Padres, and he got plenty of support from his offense in a 6-3 victory over the Yankees in front of 43,504 fans at Petco Park.”

A preview of today’s game – ESPN

“The Padres (52-60) have won 10 of 15 but are 5-12 without Cabrera, who was 2 for 5 with two RBIs in Sunday’s 6-3 home win over the New York Yankees.”

Everth Cabrera suspended 50 games – Ian Edward Russell Smith

“Through all the speculation and wonder, the trivial concern and thought, the inevitable suspension of Padres shortstopEverth Cabrera is official and the veteran All-star will serve a 50-game punishment – effectively ending Cabrera’s 2013 season.”

Everth’s Apology – Gaslamp Ball

“In a heartfelt apology, Everth talked about the circumstances behind his involvement with the Biogenesis clinic and how much he regretted his decision.”

August Trade Candidates: Relievers – MLBTR

“Keep in mind that availability varies by player – the Padres may not be open to moving Street, even though he could clear waivers.”

A look at the steroid era, graphically – Fangraphs

“While it might be folly to say that steroids have no effect on the results of that endeavor, it’s also nearly impossible to pinpoint what steroids have meant to baseball’s most hallowed number.”

A look back at Brian Giles – Padres Public

“However, there’s a serious misconception in San Diego about Brian Giles, with many fans believing Giles was an inadequate performer (or worse: awful). And that, my friends, couldn’t be further from the truth.”

Five good things from the Yankees series – Jeremy Nash of The Friarhood

“It was glorious my friends. A little David v. Goliath to start off the first weekend in August is nice. So here are my five good things from that series.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 8-5-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“Only 3 teams played tonight on the farm and the highlight was easily Zach Eflin’s dominant performance. Eflin was so good that he got the victory even though he was supported by only 4 hits. The AZL Padres were blown out by the AZL Giants while the T-Pads lost a close one 5-4.”

About the author: Matt Rennick

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.
