A Padres win wasn't in the Cards, lose 0-4

"I like to cross my arms too." "Leave me alone."

Ugh. These games are killing me.  My mental well being is riding on these games and each time we leave men on base a few screws get loosened.  Each time we lose it's all I can do to not lose my sh_t.

Things unraveled when Tim Stauffer allowed a lead off walk to a dude and then some other dude laid down a bunt and then Albert Pujols lined a ball to right field.  Here's what I've noticed about our right fielder Ryan Ludwick, and I've said this before, he's not so good on defense.  He consistently gets bad jumps, can't get a good bead on the ball and frankly makes bad decisions when it comes down to diving.  This time it seemed like he really couldn't make up his mind if he wanted to lay out or block the ball.  In the end he did neither. Runs scored.

Oh also the Padres were shut out again.  No runs on 7 hits  They had opportunities to score early on but they passed on them thinking that even better opportunities would come along later.  Then the lights in the club turned on and they were all alone with the janitor.

Remember when Jed Hoyer said that he believed it would take 91-92 games to win the NL West?  How accurate do think that is?  The reason I ask is because there are only 16 games left and that means the Padres would have to win 9 or 10 of those to win it.  That seems a bit ambitious at this point.  Not impossible by any means, but ambitious.

Maybe the Pads will take the next 3 games from the Cards and I can avoid a nervous breakdown.

Go Padres!
