Daily Friar 9.19.13 

The Padres may have been eliminated a long time ago, but that does not mean that they are going down without a fight in these final weeks of the season. They have won their fourth straight game and the third against the Pirates. They can grab the four game sweep today before facing the division for the final ten games. The Padres have put together a nice September so far going 11-5 for the month and winning games in great fashion. Tyson Ross pitched yet another amazing game last night, which bodes very well for next season. The crazy thing is technically the Padres can still finish above .500 if they win out the rest of the season. Today they try to keep the streak going with Ian Kennedy on the mound going against Gerrit Cole right now.

Padres bend but don’t break in Steel City –

“The Padres rallied in the ninth inning to down the Pirates, 3-2, at PNC Park on Wednesday night”

Cedeno’s play a positive sign for next year –

“Shortstop Ronny Cedeno continues to make a solid case for a roster spot next year — with the Padres or another team. He collected three more hits on Tuesday and is batting .311 in 33 games with the Padres entering Thursday, when he hit sixth against the Pirates.”

Headley having a career month?…Kinda – Union Tribune

“Although the Padres will still have 10 games left to the season after today’s finale in Pittsburgh, Headley is slugging .690 this month with a 1.110 OPS – the best numbers he’s ever put together during a month at any point in his career.”

MadFriars’ 2013 AZL Player of the Year

“While Franmil Reyes may have the higher offensive ceiling, Cordero is the better complete package because of his defensive premium at shortstop and impressive speed.”

Tom Garfinkel retrospective – Padres Public

“While he was a likable, fan friendly guy, the long-term success of a Chief Executive Officer has to be tied to winning baseball. Circumstances never gave Tom Garfinkel that chance.”

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.
