Daily Friar 9.28.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

I guess things come around full circle every once in a while. We all know how awful the season started, then how great we were playing in the middle of the season, and now things have gone bad once again. The Padres have dropped another series, this time against the Dodgers. The sad part is they are not losing close games they are getting blown out. Yes we have young pitchers who need exposure, but if we are supposed to contend next year things will have to change before next April. The offense has done okay, except for the past few games. Against the Dodgers the Padres scored 8 runs to the Dodgers 17. That will need to change, but that is what next season is for. And as an avid Padre fan for all 23 years of my life I have gotten used to looking forward to “next year.” Here are your Padres links for today:

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.
