Daily Friar 8.23.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

The Padres are the best team in baseball. Seriously go look it up, it’s a proven fact. Alright, maybe that’s not entirely true, but they sure are taking the role of spoiler to heart. The Pirates will most likely finish about .500 for the first time in forever, but to add something more sweet to that they are trying for a playoff push.

We’re heading towards September, which means a lot of division foes coming up. The DBacks are only 5.5 games out behind the Giants and Dodgers. So they are hoping for some late life to their season. But here come the Padres to jab a knife into that heart. Here are your Padres links for today:
