Padres defeat the Cardinals like a billion to three

"Girl.... MMPH!"

At this point, it's pretty clear that the Padres 2013 season is going to be a good one. I mean, it's 2009 all over again. The young guys are getting some no-pressure months to settle into themselves. Guys like Cameron Maybin and Will Venable are doing their best impersonations as All-Star type players. Guys like Yonder Alonso and Yasmani Grandal are doing their best RoY candidate impersonations. Guy like Chase Headley is doing his best impersonation as an MVP.

Every single pitcher that the Padres have signed, drafted, scouted, traded for, is settling into a role as something that wasn't actually the 17th or 18th or 19th choice in the role.

It's all clicking.

Tonight it was clicking to the tune of 17 hits and 11 runs and a cycle bid by Maybin two separate cycle bids by Maybin and Logan Forsythe. Lots of San Diego missed the game because they still don't get Time Warner Cable and/or they were watching the Chargers crush the Raiders. But if you watched the game, or bits of it, well... You got a preview into how good 2013 is going to be.

tl;dr: The Padres are prepping for their best season evar.
