Friar Follies

Friday provided another memorable snapshot for the Friar Follies coffee-table book. As Matt Bush sat in a Florida jail, Justin Verlander dismissed hitters in Detroit, where he was two outs from his third career no-hitter. Meanwhile in San Diego, Jered Weaver would pitch the Angels past the Padres. For his career, Weaver, five months short of his 30th birthday, has a win-loss record of  88-48 and a 3.28 ERA. Against the Padres, he is 2-0 with a 1.13 ERA. Against National League teams, he is 11-3 with a 2.74 ERA.

  1. Gio Gonzalez and Huston Street were also picked in that round. The Padres were targeting a shortstop, though, and Drew was a Boras client. Doesn't this say volumes about going for the best talent in the draft, regardless of position?
