I just want to be sure, but everybody else is getting sick of the Padres and their fascination with players over the age of 36, right? You notice that there's very little mention of the "future" when we hear soundbites now. San Diego really loves living up to the reputation of the place where old players go to die and young players go to be underappreciated, traded away, and achieve greatness somewhere else. It's getting real strange and discomforting.
I'm just starting to get sick of the mentality that it's somehow more of a gamble to go with young guys with futures than it is to go with old guys with proven track records.
