When the Padres swept the Mariners there was some hope for this team. They looked fairly solid and I thought things might change just a little bit. Then they got blown out by the A’s in game one of this series. Okay I can deal with that, we’ll move on to the next game. We have a pretty decent bullpen that could hold down any lead that we might be able to get right? Yeah, I’m wrong again. The Padres came from behind only to take the lead and have the bullpen blow another game. As it stands here I am on another Sunday saying to you all, let’s hope this team can salvage another series. They have to win, it is after all Father’s Day.
