Daily Friar 8.18.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

The website is back up finally. Let’s fill you in as to what has happened while the site has been down. The owners have voted and Ron Fowler and the O’Malleys are officially the new owners of the Padres. In the mean time Padres pitchers have forgotten how to get guys out and have not been lasting long, which of course is taxing the bullpen. The team that we have seen of late has decided to revert back to it’s early season days of losing and losing big. Last night was no exception to this as you will see in the articles below. So let’s get back to business and get back to the Daily Friar. Here are your Padres links for today:

Ohlendorf has rough night in loss to Giants –
“But that third inning was very real, very long and very productive — at least for the Giants, who tallied eight runs on eight hits, two walks and an error in an inning that doomed the Padres in a 10-1 loss at Petco Park on Friday night.”

Stauffer likely done for 2012, Padres future uncertain – Union Tribune
“Stauffer, who has made only one major league start this season due to a strained flexor tendon in his right elbow, developed discomfort in his right shoulder while on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Tucson.”

Grandal returns early from pesky injury – NCT
“Grandal, however, missed just 16 games before Padres manager Bud Black penciled his name into the lineup Friday as his starting catcher and No. 5 hitter.”

News on the corresponding move that brought Grandal back – CBS Sports
“The Padres have placed catcher Nick Hundley on the 15-day disabled list with a right knee injury and reactivated catcher Yasmani Grandal, the club announced Friday.”

MLB to test new replay techniques this week –
“MLB will analyze a radar-based system and a camera-based system, both similar to the one used in tennis for down-the-line fair-or-foul calls. Yankee Stadium and Citi Field will be the guinea-pig parks for the systems, which have been installed recently.”

As we saw last night, Matt Cain is the Padres killer this time – Chicken Friars
“Sure, Cain has 11 loses against the Padres but most of those loses can be blamed for a lack of run support. No fault of his own, if I were the Padres the way to beat Cain is by holding the Giants
