Arizona shuts down San Diego, figuratively and electrically

One interesting fact about this game is if you happened to just watch some random part of it, you might've thought, Woah, the Padres are looking good. Is this kid Latos up for a Cy Young prize this year?

Mat Latos threw well. The ball did magical mysterious things. However, if you didn't watch the game, I would have trouble finding anything really to say that would make you believe that the Padres actually won this game, especially considering they lost.

I feel for Padres beat writers. How do you talk about loss after loss after loss? They must have some sort of formula that allows them to write about losses without actually feeling that they're just repeating themselves.

At least we got to see the Diamondbacks throwback uniforms. Those uniforms remind me of a simpler time, when purple and teal gave clear indication that Desert people are weird.

Here's an idea... At some point, the novelty of wearing throwbacks will begin to wear thin with the fans. My suggestion: Opponent Uniform Night. Say the Diamondbacks are playing the Giants. Have the Giants wear the Diamondbacks uniforms and vice versa. It'll be novel and fun and you'll be able to sell more "alternate" gear to the fans. Only this way, you'll be able to just sell overstock stuff that the other team already has. Smart right? I have a Sports MBA.

In other news, it was revealed that a worker in Arizona basically caused the blackout in San Diego. Isn't it interesting that somebody could have that much power? That dude's like Kanye. I wish the Padres were like Kanye. Kanye's a winner.
