Padres defeat Cubs 9-5, Karsten Whitson decides to go to college or something

So the Padres beat the Cubs tonight, which puts the team at 70 wins so far this season. Seeing as many prognosticators were bold enough to predict the Padres would win about 70 wins this season, this is a hearty f_ck-you-your-prediction-software-sucks kind of win.

You know what's a bitch though is that Karsten Whitson didn't sign with the Padres. He was the ninth overall pick and apparently he wants to go back to school, which is dumb. School is for suckers, Karsten. If your career is baseball, then you should've signed with the Padres. You could've gone to school later, or not at all seeing as most people go to school to try to prepare themselves to make money as opposed to going to school because somebody offered you a poop ton of money based on no professional experience and the prediction that you would do well in the Major Leagues.

Well, predictions are for Sanchezes.

Truth be told, I had forgotten that Karsten was our first round pick until the Twitters were blowing up about it. Oh well.

Go Padres!
