This has been some kinda season, eh?

The Padres finally - FINALLY - play somebody else besides the Dodgers tonight as they travel over to visit our good friend Jenny Cavnar and the Colorado Rockies.

Things the Padres have going for them tonight:

  • Colorado is a nice place to try to get bats healthy
  • Cory Luebke is a good pitcher
  • Matt Kemp does not play for the Rockies
  • Neither does Dee Gordon
  • Dale Scott will not be officiating tonights game
  • Regression to the mean

Even if you think the Padres are only gonna win 60 games this season, this means that they are currently running below expectations. We need to get those wins back sometime.

I'm predicting a Padres sweep just because I get the feeling that it's one of those seasons.
