Another week falls off the calendar, and you know what that means right? That means we are exactly 15 days away from the first spring training game! Baseball is here my friends. Here’s a quick recap of our week in posts.

2/11/12 – Ernesto Frieri broke onto the season and lit it up when he first entered the Padres bullpen. He had a strong year last year, but there have been signs that he may be regressing. We took a look at which direction he may go in 2012.
2/11/12 – The Padres were ranked as having the number one farm system in all of baseball by Keith Law of ESPN. High praise and deserved praise that we covered here.
2/12/12 – There’s been a lot of confusion and back and forth about the actual monetary numbers the Padres will be getting with the new Fox TV deal, but the bottom line is, they’ll be making more than they previously did. We broke down the deal and how it will help in the long run.
2/12/12 – Coming out of FanFest was more than just fan excitement. We got some actual news. Andrew Cahsner made it known that he wants to start again and the Padres promised him the opportunity.
2/13/12 – A checklist preparing all Padres fans for the season is a necessity. We took the liberty of providing you the checklist so you don’t have to think about it.

2/16/12 – Chase Headley has still not been locked in to a long-term deal, so we analyzed what it may cost the Padres if they do not buy out his arbitration years.
2/17/12 – In our series exploring Padres history, we have arrived at possibly the biggest part of the franchise’s identity. We took a look back at Tony Gwynn’s debut with the Padres.
2/17/12 – Gary Carter’s passing shook the baseball world. We examined his time playing against the Padres and how well he performed.
