I'm waiting for my favorite sports scores webpage to load up expecting the padres to be up by a good margin with Peavy pitching another dominating, stopper-like game. And to my expectation it was indeed a blowout, 0-12. Only it was the Mets taking it to Bochy's crew yet again for a series sweep of the "first place" San Diego Padres. Perhaps Pat O'Brien is on too something that we here in little ol San Diego don't realize? Well then its time, regardless of what they think of us on Entertainment Tonight or the Best Damn..., time for us to really start barking. At who you ask? Kevin Towers for one, Bruce Bochy two, and John Moores three. Take your pick. If it were up to me I'd show Boch the door if the Padres continue to play this shitty for the rest of the season, no matter what extension he just signed. He's just too mellow for this club and IF, if the Padres don't turn it around and start playing like the dominating club they SHOULD be, then he needs to go and another guy needs to come in and knock some heads around (Lou?). I just can't blame the players all that much, except for maybe Nevin and Klesko for being such no-trade clause toads, because our bench players have stepped it up tremendously through all the injuries to key players like Eaton, Loretta, and that redneck first baseman guy. Harsh, yes, but its time for him to get lost and the American League is calling and they want another poor-fielding DH to join the club, any club for that matter.
I just hope that the club really comes together soon and that Eaton's injury isn't as bad as I'm thinking it is. Perhaps they will, and August will be a run up to the Playoffs with the engine going on all cylinders. But if it isn't and we continue to limp along, then people gotta go. No doubt 'bout it.
