A little more than a week ago, All Star first baseman Adrian Gonzalez said "If we go 8-4 to the break and get to within six out on Arizona ... we're not too far out. It doesn't sound great, but it's been done before. I think everything rides on these next 12 games. Six-and-six, we're done. Seven-and-five, though. But 8-4. It's something to shoot for. We've created the start."
8-4 is no longer a possibility. I fully expect them to come out tomorrow in shorts and T-shirts, drinking beer and treating the rest of the season like a softball league. 44 more losses should not be that difficult to achieve.
Grandpa Canepa says it's not Bud's fault. This would be a more credible piece if Canepa ever actually watched a Padres game. Pretty sure he wrote the same column about Bochy a number of years ago and just changed "Bochy" to "Black" for this one. Actually, he probably just changed "ochy" to "lack."
As has been discussed here all week, seems Clark may be on the block.
Wolf would like to stay in SD.
Off day today before the Braves arrive in town for the last series before the break.
