The Padres drafted Johnny Manziel in a late round in 2014. It was seen then as a joke that no one laughed out. Now it is almost tragic given Manziel’s direction. So when I heard that Tim Tebow was trying out for baseball, I hoped the Padres would not be tempted. To be fair, between […] Padres Should NOT Pursue Tim Tebow Tryout - Friars on Base - Friars on Base - A San Diego Padres Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

SD 0, TB 2: Padres end the road trip with a dud

A boring finale to a not-so-great series. Well, it can't get much lower than getting swept by the Rays. Especially when you're outscored 25-3. But this could very well be the tone for the remainder of the season. Today could have been a good finale, the pitching wasn't awful. But the Friars couldn't break the funk. Christian Friedrich, who isn't known for his quality starts as of late, had a start that wasn't half bad. He went just over 6 innings, only gave up 2 runs on 6 hits (one HR) all in the first inning, and struck out 5. Really solid come to think of it when you have Jose Dominguez...
