Daily Friar 8.1.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

We have survived another trade deadline. Compared to last season this one was pretty tame. Not a huge amount of big names were traded, although the Phillies did send their outfield to the West Coast. The Padres were quiet all day not trading anyone for the first time since 2008. I like the fact that Byrnes didn’t just make a trade to make a trade. This will just set things up for an interesting offseason. The Padres lost last night in anticlimactic fashion. Chase Headley struck out on a check swing ruled by the home plate umpire. That really grinds my gears when the home plate umpire makes that call. Let me tell you from experience every check swing looks like a full swing from the home plate umpire’s perspective. Here’s hoping we can beat the Reds today, and here are your Padres links:

Sole frame of offense falls short for Padres –
“Chapman and the Reds eventually won the battle and the game, as the Reds held on for a 7-6 win over the Padres, though Headley said afterward that he wishes the outcome had been different — not just because he struck out swinging on a slider but because he didn’t feel like he swung at all.”

Padres offense takes off in Cincinnati – Union Tribune
“Over the last two nights, the Padres have scored 17 runs on 21 hits while splitting the first two games of a four-game series against the Reds. They had a six-run inning Tuesday night in a 7-6 loss and innings of five and four runs in Monday night
