Hey, Friars Fans!

Would you like to start your days than with a daily roundup of some of the most interesting, important, and breaking Padres-themed news stories from around the web?

Well beginning today, I will do my best to bring you a “Daily Roundup” to quench your thirsts for the latest information about the San Diego Padres:

 

  • On Padres.com, Corey Brock and Jamal Collier mentioned the progress Tyson Ross has made in the Friars’ bullpen.  Ross, who was originally the team’s fifth starter this year, has been improving in a long-relief role since he came back from the shoulder injury he sustained earlier in the season.  Brock also mentions how Ross is retooling his swing too.  I for one am happy to hear this, especially since Tyson injured his shoulder after he recorded a hit earlier in the year against the Dodgers.

 

There you have it Friars fans.  I hope you enjoyed the “Roundup,” and I will be back with another installment tomorrow.

      Thank you, I always appreciate the comments.

      On an unrelated topic, how do you think the Chargers will do this season?

      Although I’m a Steelers fan, I’ve seen that San Diego has made a number of coaching staff and personnel changes.

        i think they will do really well. injuries have killed us the past few yrs and ive had my pitch fork out for the trainers and dr, chao to be gone and of course AJ and Norv, they got rid of those early 90′s weight machines and got caught up with times, they say the grass is even greener lol but yeah im seeing a ten win season if the O can hurry up and get on the same page and no more OL injuries, the D is the same and have been improving under Pags. i saw the streelers OL go down last yr hows ur guys line besides the robbery issue ?

          O-Line should be much improved if they can stay healthy. Sad to see Starks leave, especially since he was so consistent as a starter on the ‘05 and ‘08 Super Bowl title teams (right tackle in 2005, left tackle in 2008). As long as he stays healthy, he will be a steady presence on the blind-side for the Bolts.

          Lots of good young talent with Pouncey, DeCastro, and Gilbert, and Foster has quietly become a solid left guard. If Adams (when he returns) and Gilbert can hold down the fort for Big Ben, then they’ve got a shot to be competitive. Still hate the Le’Veon Bell pick though. Should have gone for an inside linebacker to pair with Timmons.

          Defense however is getting older, and they will be a liability this fall. Too many players have left, or are in their contract years, and the entire defense could be in flux once again. Granted they ranked #1 in total defense last year, but the unit blew seven 4th quarter leads last year and looked awful down the stretch.
