Following the Padres first win of the 2009 season the Padres are set to announce the addition of Tom Garfinkel as president and chief operating officer of the club. This move was somewhat expected as Garfinkel held a similar position with the Arizona Diamondbacks with new owner-in-waiting Jeffrey Moorad.
In the Friars 4-2 victory Tuesday night FF was impressed with the over powering fastball that propelled Heath Bell to striking out the side in a scoreless 9th to earn the first save in as many chances in the post Trevor era.
FF is concerned with the amount of free passes given up by the bullpen in 3 scoreless innings: 2 issued by a visibly nervous Edwin Moreno in his MLB debut, and one by Bell to bring the tying run to the plate in the 9th. The frames were blank but the Pads were playing with fire.
Duaner Sanchez tossed a perfect 8th in his Friar debut.
Friar Fashion Marks:
In the first, and hopefully last, installment of FF Fashion question marks we would like to call into question the hair of 2008 NL Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum. FF is wondering if the addition of Randy Johnson to the Giants has brought about the silly looking long locks of the talented young starter.
