And you all were doubting the cats in the GameThread. For shame.

Two days after squeezing out a win in extras at St Louis, the Padres demonstrated that they have the capability of winning a game here and there in convincing manner. After a shaky start, the team settled in and dropped half a dozen runs on the Cards in the 5th and just held it the f_ck down the rest of the time.

Hits: A sh_t ton

Nick Hundley, who I somehow completely forgot all about in my season preview, has started the season off on a tear. Chase Headley likewise is doing some damage. Killa Cam Maybin looks good.

Somebody else can talk about small sample size, but two in a row against the Cardinals? That's what I'm talkin' about.
