The Padres might be in the thick of this putrid NL West race if they hadn't traded Mike Adams. Seriously. #sdut— Nick Canepa (@sdutCanepa) August 24, 2011
Is Canepa really being serious? This is the most ridiculous thing I've heard regarding the Mike Adams trade. A) We were 47-62 and 14.5 games back when we traded him. B) We've gone 13-8 since the trade and are now 10.5 games back. We are more "in the thick" of the NL West race than we were with Adams on the team. And by "in the thick" I mean "not in the thick at all."
