The News guy on KOGO last night kept saying that the Pads shut out the Marlins 6-0 yesterday. He's like "The Pads go for the sweep tomorrow". He did it for at least an hour and a half and nobody corrected him. I was like "Maybe it was all a bad dream and the Pads did win that game". But alas, the Pads did lose horrifically yesterday.
Too bad we didn't have a Peavy / D-Train matchup yesterday. Friend against friend. Ace vs. Ace. Anyway Peavy will mow down batters today and hopefully the Dodgers and the D-Backs will continue to suck. We need a few insurance wins here. It's too close for comfort.
D-Backs are 4 games back, Dodgers 5 and Giants 6 games back.
Update [2005-8-18 14:10:46 by jbox]:
The Kansas City Royals are on a 18 game winless streak. 21 games is the AL record for losses. They are also 43 games under .500. Ouch.
