Padres get shut out by the Braves by like a billion

OK. So the Braves beat us. And I'm sure somewhere on the Internet, Jon Morosi is saying, "Yep. I told you so." But the thing is (and the part of it that pisses Padres fans off), the Braves may very well be a better team than the Padres and they may match up better against us, etc. etc... But that doesn't mean the Padres are going to fade. It just means the Braves are really good.

The other thing that it means is that I really want to see what the next two pieces to this Padres team are going to be. This is a playoff team, but I'm not quite sure it's a World Series team. I want it to be a World Series team.

If you need cheering up, the Padres are still 16-7 in blowout games (won or lost by 5+ runs). So we've usually been on the better end of games like today's game.

Tomorrow is another day as the road trip takes us to Pittsburgh. The expectation is sweep, and we'll want to see it get lopsided in time for the Dodgers series after that. It's totally within the Padres' hands to finish off what's left of the Dodgers' playoff hopes. Let's go ahead and do that.
