Padres beat the Nationals 4-1. Only 8 more months left in preseason

Doesn't this season feel like it's been preseason all this time? The games don't mean anything other than to give us a hint at what we might be able to do once the regular season starts. I'm feeling pretty good about the team, but, as a Padres fan, I've been through plenty of seasons where we play spoiler. I'd rather the wins actually mean something for us.

In any case, we won again. We won another series. The team looks pretty good. A few additions. A couple of subtractions and I think we'll be much much closer to a .500 ballclub.

I'm just about ready for the real regular season to begin. Just gotta get to 2010 first.
