Daily Friar 9.6.13 

The Padres are back at it tonight after having the day off yesterday. The Rockies are in town for a three game weekend series that will take us to the off day on Monday. Tonight is also Beer Fest and first pour is at 5 PM so be sure to get down there early. Following the Beer Fest will be first pitch as Burch Smith returns to the rotation to take on Juan Nicasio at 7:10 PST.

A preview of today’s game – ESPN

“San Diego third baseman and Colorado native Chase Headley is 6 for 9 with two home runs against Nicasio, but went 0 for 12 when the Padres dropped two of three at Coors Field last month.”

Headley seeking solution for season-long struggles –

“So what exactly happened to Headley this season? Even he isn’t quite sure, though he’s certain that it’s not one thing. Has he been pitched to differently? No question. Has he been susceptible to breaking balls? At times, absolutely.”

Five things to watch in the Colorado series – Union Tribune

“The three-game set at Petco Park this weekend are the final meetings between the Rockies and the Padres this season, and so far Colorado has dominated the head-to-head match-ups.”

2013 the lost year for Cameron Maybin – Rant Sports

“The 2013 season will go down as one that essentially never happened for Maybin, for all intents and purposes. He has managed to appear in only 14 games, with knee and wrist issues consuming him this year.”

In 1998 the Padres had 90 wins at this point – Gaslamp Ball

“At this point in the season back in 1998 the Padres had just claimed their 90th win.  That’s better than any other team today.  The Braves are currently the best team in baseball and they only have 85 wins. Think about that.”

Pitching for next year: Andrew Cashner – Padres Public

“Am I spinning this? Maybe, but it’s not unreasonable to think that we’re seeing a guy at the big-league level learn how to harness his stuff and become a legitimate number three starter.”

Five good things from the Giants series – Jeremy Nash of The Friarhood

“There were homers by Chase Headley and Ronny Cedeno that almost made the list, however when you give up six, those don’t matter as much. But to make us happy, here’s five from the first two games that won the series.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 9-5-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“The Missions and TinCaps won today as both teams’ starting pitchers excelled for the second night in a row. The entire TinCaps lineup enjoyed a productive night at the plate while the Missions have now struggled with RISP in consecutive games.”
