Daily Friar 8.9.12

If only these Padres were playing the same way at the beginning of the season, then we could be looking at a potential playoff run. Unfortunately though, they dug a huge hole that they won’t be able to get themselves out of. They did, however, return the favor to the Cubs from back in May. The Cubs swept us in Wrigley, and the Padres did just that in the latest series here at Petco. Interesting though that the Cubs only lost one game against the NL West this year at Wrigley, but on the road are winless against the same clubs. It was nice to get the sweep yesterday, but they are moving on to some better teams now and need to play better baseball in order to compete. Yes we won, but the team looked sloppy yesterday constantly running into outs. Here are your Padres links for today:

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.
