Daily Friar 9.20.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

The Padres are just about done for the season. They are now officially eliminated from the division race, and are 8 games back in the Wild Card standings. So while the playoffs were a longshot at the beginning of the moth, they are pretty much out of reach now. If they had kept winning and taken the first two games in Arizona instead of losing them horribly then we might have still had a chance. As it stands now we have to make sure that people remain healthy and can produce for the team next season. It has been a remarkable run of late though in that we have 71 wins, just one less than the “experts” predicted us to win. Hopefully we can win today and reach that threshold.

About the author: Matt Rennick

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.
