Meet the “New” Padre Starting Staff

The trades of James Shields, Drew Pomeranz , Andrew Cashner and Colin Rea have decimated the Padres starting staff. Only Tyson Ross, who has not pitched since April, is left. Thus a big opportunity for some less than household names to make their mark. I think it is time to see “Who are these Guys?” […] Meet the “New” Padre Starting Staff - Friars on Base - Friars on Base - A San Diego Padres Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

One Padres fan's perspective: I'm going to miss Andrew Cashner

Last night, when the Padres' trade of Andrew Cashner to the Marlins was still a rumor, I remarked how I'd miss the guy even though he never lived up to the lofty expectations placed on him that continued to grow as Anthony Rizzo, the man San Diego traded to get him, blossomed into a superstar. My fandom of individual players isn't based on their performance -- as my ongoing fixation with Joey Cora and the Alexi Amaristas of the world can attest -- but how they carry themselves and what kind of effort they put forth. Cashner was a hit with me in both regards, always joking and laughing with...

Padres Trade Rumors: Marlins are frontrunners to acquire Andrew Cashner

One of the biggest questions surrounding the Padres leading up to the 2016 non-waiver trade deadline is where starting pitcher Andrew Cashner would wind up. Whether or not he would get traded was not even an issue; everybody and her parents knew he was on the way out the door, including Cashner himself. The two teams that popped up most in talks surrounding the tall Texan were the Rangers and Marlins. They were both still in the thick of things until this past hour when reports sprang up left and right that the Rangers were out and the Marlins were trying their best. As of now the return on...

Trade rumor: Giants interested in Andrew Cashner (for some reason)

Why have one inconsistent fireball-throwing enigma on the staff when you can have two? In a perfect market, the Giants would trade for a reliever. In perfect market, the Giants would trade for a starting pitcher. The world of internet memes would like to offer some very important advice: Get you a man who can do both. Maybe. Even if he’s never been too good at either role. Andrew Cashner is the rumor du jour, with this one coming from Jon Morosi: #SFGiants remain in active talks with #Padres about Andrew Cashner, sources say. @MLBNetwork @MLB — Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) July 27,...

Alex Dickerson extends Padres' home run streak to 24 games

With the Padres down 3-1 to the Blue Jays in the top of the sixth inning, Poway native Alex Dickerson took Toronto starter Marcus Stroman deep with two men on to give San Diego a 4-3 lead and extend the team's home run streak to 24 consecutive games. The home run was Dickerson's fifth of the year, and third in the past three games. The 24 consecutive games with a homer is three games shy of the all-time record of 27 set by the 2002 Texas Rangers, and the longest since then; the streak is the longest in the National League since the 1998 Atlanta Braves went 25 games in a row, per the in-game...

An ode to Melvin Upton Jr.

Remembering BJ’s best moments as a Padre. A little over a year ago, A.J. Preller wrapped up his whirlwind offseason by bringing Craig Kimbrel to San Diego hours before the first game of the season. But he came with an albatross named Melvin Upton Jr. The Braves signed the elder Upton to a five-year $72 million contract in 2012 only to see a disastrous two seasons in Atlanta. So they sent him packing, and he started last year on San Diego’s disabled list while is brother opened the season in left field for the Padres. If you’d asked me then which Upton I’d be saddest to see leave,...
