Daily Friar 9.13.13 

A rain delay may have ultimately done in the Padres last night as they dropped the final game of the series in Philadelphia. The game started 55 minutes later than scheduled and Tyson Ross did not look like himself afterwards. He has been stellar of late putting up nine consecutive quality starts and was looking for his tenth when he couldn’t make it out of the first inning. The bullpen then came in and the Phillies had their way taking the lead and the game. It’s on to Atlanta now as Ian Kennedy takes on David Hale at 4:30 PST.

Ross can’t find rhythm after rain delays start –

“The Phillies used a six-run first inning Thursday night to put the Padres away early during a 10-5 victory before a crowd of 29,986 at Citizens Bank Park.”

Hoffman to work with pitchers full time in new role –

“This newly created role will see him working with pitchers at the Double-A, Triple-A and big league levels with an eye on communication and preparing younger pitchers for what it will take to succeed in the Major Leagues.”

Chase Headley’s future up in the air – ESPN

“Headley will have ample opportunity in 2014 and beyond to prove this season was a fluke. Time and the economics of baseball will determine whether he’s still wearing a San Diego uniform.”

Tyson Ross is showing signs of a better 2014 on the way – Rant Sports

“His last ten starts have shown an ERA of 2.62 with an impressive 63 strikeouts. Most impressive about those strikeouts is that ten of them came against the powerful Los Angeles Dodgers in only five innings of work where Ross held them to 1 run.”

Venable 2 SB shy of a 20/20 season – Gaslamp Ball

“Two more steals, when combined with his 22 homers, will give Venable just the tenth 20/ 20 season in Padres history.”

A comparison of Chase Headley and Will Venable – Padres Public

“Will Venable has turned a breakout season into an extension and into the Padres future conversations. Chase Headley took his breakout season, double downed, and so far is busting in 2013.”
