That's right. It's not dex or jbox posting here... kev is back! Most of you probably have no idea who I am, probably don't care, and want to know why I get admin rights to post stories 2-3 times/season. It's under the performance clause of my contract.
There's no excuse for it, but I've been away from the daily activities of Gaslampball doing my best to gauge the mood of the fans here. Honestly, it's very sad. Seeing the frustration on this blog, hearing it from friends & family in SD, and even hearing it on XM from Ted, I've decided to make a much overdue appearance.
You can talk all you want about pitching, clutch hitting, defense, and smart coaching. I come from the school of thought that momentum is everything. One strong series, leads to another, which leads to another, and so on. Yes the NL West is the weakest division. Any yes the Padres are fortunate to have the lead they do. Maybe it's a good thing I don't have to live it everyday, otherwise I'd be real down on them too. I haven't turned my back and still have hope that someone is going to step up and get this team on track.
On a side note, I recently took my Dad to a Giants game at SBC Park against the Cardinals. I left the house wearing my SD hat and my Dad says "you sure you want to wear that with all those Giants fans?" I'm like, "yeah, what do they care, they suck right?" So I'm taking him around SBC and walking the right field wall when some young prick passes me, looks at the hat, and says, "San Diego, what the f$#@ is that?" I let it slide, but couldn't help but think that I hate Giants fan and am so glad their team sucks ass.
