If I'm a Padres prospect that isn't currently up with the club, I am really enjoying myself. There's a good chance that I'm in the minor league playoffs, actually winning games. The group of guys I'm with looks solid and I could see how, in maybe even by 2013, I could be up with the big club with this same group of guys that's cruising through the farm systems of other clubs. It's an exciting time.
It's not so exciting if you're mostly concerned with the big league club. Aaron Harang got smoked last night and gave up a ton of home runs. If you were to ask me about things I was pleased with this Padres season, I would've said, Aaron Harang and I would've thought of something else to go along with that like Nick Hundley or something. Now though? I dunno.
When a team built on defense and pitching starts to see its pitching and defense go, all we're left with is Jack and sh_t and the bucket just left town. Wait... Sh_t is in the bucket.... And Jack took the bucket with him... Or Jack stepped in a bucket full of sh_t... Something like that... Some combination of that is the Padres season. A bucket and some sh_t and a dude named Jack.
