So here we are in August still in first place, leading the Giants by 1.5 games in the NL West. This past week the Padres went 4-3 finishing the sweep against the Pirates, taking two from the Dodgers and losing the series to the Marlins. The Pads finished July with a 14-10. In August they're a perfect 1-0.
The big news this week was obviously the trades. GM Jed Hoyer and company acquired Miguel Tejada and Ryan Ludwick. The message from the Padres was clear, they are good at trolling for beefy men, luring them away from their homes with the promise of fame and fortune and then putting them to work in the park.
It seems that fans are finally starting to take notice because Petco Park was packed this week pulling some of the best attendance numbers of the year.
Feeling pretty confident, eh? Well let's see just how confident, vote in this poll.
The rules are simple. On a scale of 0 to 10, 0 being no confidence at all, 10 being absolute confidence, How confident are you in the San Diego Padres organization?
"Confidence" is just about anything you want to interpret it as. The front office, the future prospects, the play on the field, the park, etc etc etc
