Padres and the Season of Doom

The Padres are capable of playing great baseball.  However for the last 3 months they've been playing like they have been hypnotized.  They remind me of Indiana Jones from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.  Remember when Indy turns evil after being exposed to some kind of black magic?  It seems that it's over for Indy.

But wait there is hope!  Short Round his little buddy burns him with a torch to wake him up from his nighmarish state.  

Short Round: Indy, I love you.
[burns Indy with a torch]
Short Round: Wake up, Indy! You're my best friend! Wake up, Indy!

Indy wakes up and once again fights for fortune and glory.  

Indiana Jones: Fortune and glory, kid. Fortune and glory.

After all that's what we are playing for.

Tonight, Jake Peavy with his fiery fastball will awaken the Padres. They will seek the fortune and glory of the post season.

Willie: You're gonna get killed chasing after your damn fortune and glory!
Indiana Jones: Maybe. But not today.

That's right... not today, not on Peavy's watch.
