    Padres Bats (And the Old Chris Paddack) Show up in Win

    When he burst on the scene as a rookie in 2019, Chris Paddack made a name for himself with his fire on the mound and a 97-MPH fastball that hitters had all kinds of trouble catching up to (just ask Pete Alonso). In 2020 and most of 2021 Paddack was a different guy. After two weeks on the Injured List…

    Padres Still Can't Find Offense in San Francisco

    I believe it’s safe to say the Padres are just fine with not seeing Kevin Gausman again for a while. In fact, if he was traded to another league (in another country, just to be safe), that would be great. Gausman continued to baffle San Diego hitters on Saturday afternoon at Oracle Park in San Francisco, tossing 6.0 innings of…

    Snell Struggles, Padres Lose in San Francisco

    It would not be accurate to say something is wrong with Blake Snell. But it would also not be accurate to say he’s 100% right. Snell was on the mound to start a 3-game series against the Giants on Friday night in San Francisco. He only gave up one hit in 4.2 innings … but allowed four runs because of…

    Padres Have a New Partner … in Las Vegas

    Bottom of the 9th. Two outs. Bases loaded. One-run game. Every Little Leaguer has played that scenario out in their minds, inevitably coming up with the walkoff knock or game-ending strikeout. The 9th inning of a close baseball game is one of the most exciting and unique experiences in sports. At Petco Park this year, you may have noticed something…

    Darvish, Cronenworth Deliver 4-2 Win Over Pirates

    Yu Darvish has been the bullpen’s best friend in his first season with the San Diego Padres. Although he gave up a 2-0 lead and didn’t factor in the decision, the tall right-hander pitched into the sixth inning Wednesday night, when the Padres beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-2 to take two of three. Jake Cronenworth hit a go-ahead, two-run...

    Padres Set Minor League Rosters

    In 2020, Major League Baseball got in 60 games plus a full postseason. Minor League Baseball, however, had to sit out the whole year. Teams were able to keep a couple dozen of their top prospects around at “alternate training sites” but most players in the lower levels (thing Double A and below) basically missed an entire year of professional…

    Friars Frustrated in Loss to Giants

    A sweep would have been nice but against a first place team, on a day where nothing really got going, the Padres will take a series win. San Diego left eight runners on base in a 7-1 loss to the Giants on Sunday afternoon at Petco Park. Fernando Tatis Jr. started the game off with a bang. In the first…

    Home Runs and Punchouts Lead Padres to Win Over Giants

    During his career with the Rays, Blake Snell was not allowed to go very deep in games because of an organizational belief it’s not beneficial to allow starters to do that. After being traded to the Padres, Snell said he wanted to change that. He’s still figuring out how to do it, but when he does the rest of...

    Yu Da Man! Darvish Deals as Padres Beat Giants

    The Padres and Giants started their 3-game set at Petco Park on Friday night owners of the top two team ERAs in Major League Baseball. The odds suggested we weren’t going to see a whole lot of offense. That’s exactly how it played out. Yu Darvish struck out 12 in 6.1 innings of a 3-2 San Diego win that pulled…

    LISTEN: Padres Finally Put Things Together … Now Can They Keep it Up?

    The Padres beat the Dodgers four times in seven intense, grueling, infinitely entertaining baseball games. Now, if San Diego can play like that against everyone else, we’ll really be on to something. That’s one of the main topics in this week’s OnFriar Podcast. NBC 7’s Derek Togerson and Darnay Tripp take a trip back through the weekend against L.A....

    It's Official: The Dodgers Have A True Challenger in the NL West And it's The Padres

    The Dodgers have won eight straight National League West division titles and played in three of the last four World Series, winning it last year. The Padres went 14 years between playoff appearances with just one winning record. The Padres have been less of a rival than an annoyance. Not anymore. These franchises played seven times over the last 10…

    Rivalry Ramps Up: Padres and Dodgers Fueled by Tatis Battling Bauer

    The Dodgers have been vigilant in trying to convince everyone in baseball that the Padres are NOT their rivals. If they still believe that, I have some oceanfront property in Arizona to sell them. In another absolutely electric atmosphere at Dodger Stadium with All-Stars all over the field, the reigning world champs came from behind to beat the upstart Friars…

    Tatis Breaks Loose in Padres Win Over the Dodgers

    The reports of Fernando Tatis Jr.’s struggles are greatly exaggerated. We can safely say a dismal start to the season that saw the Padres superstar shortstop hitting less than .150 and making nearly an error a game was an aberration. On Friday night at Dodger Stadium, Tatis ripped two home runs off future Hall of Famer Clayton Kershaw in a…

    Fair Weathers Fans: Padres Rookie Spins a Gem, Friars Beat Dodgers in L.A.

    Ryan Weathers started the 2021 season in the Padres bullpen. He may never have to go back there again. Weathers, who made the Opening Day roster with a fantastic Spring Training and dazzled as a reliever, made his first Major League start a week ago against the Dodgers and looked pretty good. He made his second big league start on…

    Lamet to 10-day IL … But Padres Optimistic on Health of One of Their Aces

    The bad news is Padres starter Dinelson Lamet, one of the best starting pitchers in baseball, is going on the 10-day Injured List. Lamet left Wednesday’s game against the Brewers with forearm tightness in his pitching arm after just two innings. The good news is, he might not be injured that badly. “Lamet feels very, very good.

    LISTEN: OnFriar Podcast Explains Why 2021 HAS to Turn Around for the Padres

    Right now, things are not good for the Friar Faithful. Coming off a 1-5 homestand where the offense disappeared and another starting pitcher might have been lost for the season the Padres sit at 10-10 on the season. Given all the off-season hype surrounding this team a .500 record feels like it might as well be 3-17. But, do not…
