Padres Don't Stop Believin' - Joe Posnanski

1

Oh, it's a cavalcade of fun in baseball these days, and the main reason is that these San Diego Padres simply refuse to accept the general consensus that they're simply not good enough to keep winning. The Padres, you will recall, lost 10 games in a row when they were leading the National League West by 6 1/2 games -- and I'd say more people were surprised by the 6 1/2 game lead than the 10-game losing streak. These Padres -- the great Adrian Gonzalez excepted -- have an anemic offense. They have pitched very well, but the rotation and bullpen are not exactly loaded with big names. Coming into this series, they lost three out of four to a playing-for-nothing-but-pride Cubs team. The expectation is that the Giants playing at home in front of hungry fans would put them out of their misery quickly.
