Daily Friar 9.5.13 

The good news is the Padres managed to win a series. The bad news is that the final game of the series against the Giants was horrendous. The pitching blew up and Pablo Sandoval had himself a field day mashing three home runs en route to the Giants’ victory. Padres have the day off today as they prepare for the Rockies over the weekend. Be sure to stay tuned to for contests and meet ups all the way to the end of the season. Also be sure to read the Daily Farm Round-Up by Alex Bartlett where you can see how the minor league playoffs are going.

Padres battered by Giants’ six homer day –

“But on Wednesday, it was teammate Pablo Sandoval who provided the historic stamp when he clubbed three home runs and drove in six runs in the Giants’ 13-5 victory.”

Maybin to have surgery on wrist tomorrow –

“Maybin is still holding out hope of getting some at-bats this winter, though the surgery could push that possibility back to December.”

Burch Smith to return to rotation – Union Tribune

“With Smith pitching Friday, Black has elected to throw Tyson Ross on Saturday and Ian Kennedy on Sunday. Which means Cashner will be on nine days rest when he starts Tuesday in Philadelphia.”

All prospect all-star team – MLBTR

“Catcher: Austin Hedges, Padres — Because of his abilities on both defense and offense, San Diego’s catcher of the future narrowly edged out the Yankees’ Gary Sanchez.”

An interview with Travis Jankowski – MadFriars

“It was a solid first full professional season for the left-handed hitting former Stony Brook Seawolf. The 2012 first round supplemental draft pick hit .286/.356/.355 and, as stated above, stole 71 bases in 85 attempts.”

Tucson Padres: The end of an era – Padres 360

“The Tucson Padres played their final four games on the road in Las Vegas and took 3 out of 4 … but not quite enough to win the PCL.  They did finish 77-67 record … first time in team history the win-loss record reached ten games over .500.”

Will Venable contract extension is fresh – Gaslamp Ball

“I pretty much agree with what everybody is saying on the internets.  They think the deal is 93% fresh, the baseball equivalent of The Fantastic Mr. Fox.  I think I like the movie a lot more than Venable though.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 9-4-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“The minor league playoffs have rolled around, and the only qualifying teams were the Missions and the TinCaps. The Missions lost and the TinCaps won tonight, but both teams enjoyed excellent starting pitching from Matt Wisler and Joe Ross, respectively.”
