The 2013 World Series champs sweep the 2011 World Series champs

"Please can I be on your team? Pleeeaaaaase??" "No skip. Get back in the batters box." "PLEEEAAAAASSSSEE. I SAID PLEASE. YOU ARE MEAN."

Too soon, you think?

I mean, the Padres just swept the Cardinals who, I think are trying to round out a home stretch run into the playoffs. The Padres are just, you know, playing ball like it's no big deal, which means that they go around crushing playoff caliber teams.

Clayton Richard pitches almost lights out. Logan Forsythe hit a solo home run in the second, which is interesting, because he's apparently awesome, and early indicators were that he would potentially be a bench player next season what with Chase Headley and Jedd Gyorko and Everth Cabrera stealing all kinds of bases and well... General awesomeness.

I mean, with a bench like that, who needs friends? Or something.

In any case, anybody who's paying attention right now (in a month that typically hasn't got a lot of attention from Padres fans in recent memory) is seeing a team that's firing on all cylinders, just mowing down the competition and leaving opponents wondering what they're doing playing in places like St. Louis when San Diego is so nice and offense comes in bundles and pitching is ridiculous good and people are pretty chill.

Go Padres.
