Here is the “Daily Roundup,” Friars fans:

  • Marc Normandin of “SB Nation” shared his thoughts on the recent “Ian Kennedy to San Diego” trade.  Normandin, like most, sees Kennedy’s presence as a positive for the Padres’ make-shift rotation.  Moreover, I agree with Normandin that Kennedy should provide great insurance in case some of San Diego’s younger starters are unable to recover from their Tommy John surgeries by next year as well.
