My First Diary: Rally Monday and The Playoffs, a New Season Begins

 A great time today in the Park at the Park.  I met some other cool Padres fans.  I didn't see anyone else wearing the gaslamp shirt. They had a cool ceremony for dropping the "Division Champs" banner with fireworks and everything.  I guess it was televised on 4sd but I forgot to run the coxbox-dvr.  I heard that first pitch is at 1:09 so I imagine they are going to have another banner dropping ceremony tomorrow.  And good for it.  Let's keep on celebrating the fact that we and we alone are 2006 Western Division Champs!

So tomorrow at noon it is enough talk and back to the game.  I will do my best to drop some comments from the seats.  We'll be sitting in 231 row 18 seats 1-4.  Dex and Jbox, I have one extra ticket as I speak right now but that could turn into two extra tickets because of the mid-day timing of the game.  If you guys know someone that needs a ticket and can meet shortly before the game near PETCO just give me a call.  Jbox has my number.

Rally Monday was pretty neat.  Peavy was the only superstar from the roster, other than Bochy of course.  The rest of it was all the kids.  It must be easy for them because a lot of them live downtown.  Bard, Hens, Barfield, Johnson, Gonzo, CY, and the Peavynator.  As I was leaving the K St gate Mark Grant was walking by us, more like briskly jogging.  We shared a wave, he's a funny guy.  It was my first time seeing Vasgersian off camera, what a funny guy!  

About tomorrow, we all know that we need Peavy to pitch a stellar game.  He knows it too.  I think we also need some key hits.  Some doubles with none or one outs and some two out base hits.  Our defense and pitching will hold throughout the playoffs if we just keep getting on base and creating some opportunities.
