Pads drop another series against NL West foes. Street blows save, lose 3-5 to Giants.

I'm so annoyed with how this season is ending. The Padres were playing amazingly well after the All-Star break. Too little too late, yes, they had already blown their chances of an off-season appearance, but as a fan you felt like you were getting a preview of things to come in 2013. They really seemed to have righted the ship, didn't they?

But as September comes to a close they've run aground. In the last 5 series the Padres have played only divisional rivals and lost all of them save one to the Rockies. This is the time of year that a championship team needs to be at their best and they're wilting again. It's so disappointing. It makes me wonder now if this is a more realistic preview of 2013, unable to beat playoff caliber teams at season's end.

Yes the Padres have excuses galore, but I'm tired of excuses. I swear if the Dodgers get that second Wild Card spot then there is no one else to blame but the Padres. They could have and should have ended their season here in San Diego, but they didn't and I'm still pissed about it.

Then listening to the game today and hearing the Padres sh*t the sheets after carrying a sizable lead just makes my nads ache in the worst way.
