Daily Friar 9.22.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

I have had slow days ever since I started doing this almost a year ago, but today has to take the cake for the slowest news day ever! I’ve had more success finding stories in the off season than today. But let’s still get to the matter at hand as the Padres were defeated by the Giants last night, as Casey Kelly’s struggles continued. I do believe that Kelly will become a great pitcher, but he is going to need a lot of work before he gets to that point. Throwing a young pitcher out there against the best team in the NL West is no easy task, and I’m sure his nerves were running rampant. To me it makes sense, but you would like to see the offense give him some support now and then too. Speaking of the best team in the NL West, with a Giants win tonight and a Dodgers loss, the Giants can clinch the division tonight. Now as much as I would hate to see this happen against the Padres tonight I would rather see the Giants take the division over the Dodgers (lesser of two evils, much like the presedential election). Here are your (limited) Padres links for today:

Headley’s homer not enough backing for Kelly – Padres.com
“A slow night at the plate and an inefficient Casey Kelly were a losing formula for the Padres on Friday, dropping the series opener with the Giants, 5-1.”

Headley closing in on team home run milestone – CBS Sports
“Headley, who entered the season with 36 career homers in 529 games, is one home run shy of joining Adrian Gonzalez as only the second Padre to have a 30-homer season since Petco Park opened in 2004.”

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.
