The game has been over for a few hours but I'm still expecting someone to tell me that Rockies rushed out on the field to make a comeback when the Padres were in the showers. I haven't heard anything though so I think this Padres win is in the books.

I caught the early innings watching a really small picture-in-picture on Jon's TV while he watched the Chargers game.  I somehow missed the entire 5th inning when the majority of the scoring took place though.  It's probably for the best I would have had a heart attack or least a mild case of indigestion if I had seen that one guy hit a 3 run homer off the Pads.

I listened to the rest of the game on the radio as I drove around San Diego.  I heard Ted Leitner telling fans about the Humidor conspiracy.  Apparently a bench coach, a couple managers and a General manager (none of them Padres) told him that the Rockies use the humidor to their advantage.  To Rockies fans it sounds like a crazy conspiracy.  Here's the thing about me:  I'm very open minded about conspiracy theories... very open minded.  I'm not going to make any grand proclamations... but I will give the humidor the stink eye if we ever meet.

Go Padres!
