I am not the most positive individual

A lot of fans are down on the Padres after losing three close games to the Mariners this weekend.  While each loss was painful, it is not a time to panic.  This team is still one of the top two or even the best team in the NL.  We are in first place, even tough we have a 11-14 record in 1-run games.  Statistically we are underachieving by 3 games in the win column (the last three season are record was pretty close to our run differnetial, which right now is the BEST in the NL, and only behind the Red Sox).

Arizona is playing out of their ass, they have gotten every lucky break so far this year (at least statistically) and still are only in a virtual tie with us (17-8 in 1-run games).  I am of the belief that over 162 game season all the luck will even out and the Padres will have the best record in the NL.  When the Yankees won their last WS, they were swept by the last place tigers in a 3 game series and was outscored something like 32-5.

Keep the unicorns and rainbows ready for the postseason, enjoy our great city and our fun team.

Stay classy Gaslampballers.
