Daily Friar 8.11.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

Let’s take a minute and talk about prospects. They are supposed to be the next stars of your team and help your team make it to the promise land. However, let’s get one thing clear, prospects can always go either way once they hit the majors. Obviously you want your guy to be crushing it in the minors and then continue to do so in the majors. Manny Machado of the Orioles is a good example of that case right now. Anthony Rizzo for the Padres was the opposite case. I bring this point up because of how close we were to trading Chase Headley and putting all faith in Jedd Gyorko. Now look at where we are at. Chase just hit two more homers last night to raise his total to 17 and Gyorko, while hitting well, is headed to the minor league 7 Day DL. In my opinion Headley needs to remain a Padres for a long time. Here are your Padres links for today:
