Friar Friday Merch #60

I've been busy so I haven't had much time for this week's Friar Friday Merch. In fact you may notice that this post is a day late. *gasp* Anyways, today I bring you a "pick the stick".....stick. I got it from my trip on the Fox Sports Fan Express. I was hoping for a Kris Budden, but settled for a Mark Grant. The same Mark Grant who is following me on Twitter. Pretty simple item. Laminated board, popsicle stick holder. All in all I'd have to say it's some kinda nice.

Mark Grant played for the Padres from 1987 to 1990. He played for some other teams too, but we don't like to talk about it. He was 17-18 with the Padres and had an ERA of 3.98. In 1997, Grant began working in the Padres' TV broadcast booth for Channel 4 San Diego, and has remained there to this day, teaming with a variety of partners including Mel Proctor, Matt Vasgersian, and Dick Enberg. His style of color commentary along with his humorous on-air antics have made "Mud" (a nickname given early in his playing career by Giants coach Danny Ozark in reference to Mudcat Grant) a favorite with Padres fans.
