So I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that the Padres won the game last night. And in doing so have also won the series, and are going for the sweep today. The pitching was spot on (though not as spot on as Matt Cain was last night) and got the job done. The bad news is that our RISP hitting is still having issues. Case in point was the 9th inning we had bases...

In the world of baseball every team has a few rivals. For the Padres we have the Dodgers and the Giants (as well as the Rockies and DBacks to a lesser extent in my eyes). In the playoffs we have the Cardinals (since we got beat by them twice in a row). And in interleague play we have the Seattle Mariners. This is based solely on geography, but it's a fun little rival that we...

The battle for the non existent Vedder Cup is off to the right track for the Padres. They (barely) won last night, beating King Felix in the process. So this team has defeated Felix Hernandez, Roy Halliday (twice), and Stephen Strasburg. Yet, we are still 20 games under .500? This game is so weird how it works out sometimes. The sad part is that we are losing to mediocre pitchers...
