I just started writing a post about Dave Magadan. Let me just tell you, it was sooo good. I was asking the question: should we be singing Dave's praises now that May has turned the Padres into the best team to ever walk the earth? Should Mags be forgiven the teams past failures in the hitting department? I went on and on.
It wasn't just that, I was going to tie it into Rod Stewart's "Maggie May". Maggie being Dave Magadan and May being the month of May. I was so pleased with myself, one might say I was "pleased as punch".
I brought up the point that Geoff from Ducksnorts was the only person that stuck by Mags and didn't want him fired back in April. That's where it all went wrong. I went over to Ducksnorts to grab a link and Geoff was talking about the same thing and he had stats backing up his points and stuff. I knew right then and there that I suck. To make it worse I think he was gloating a bit about how right he was about Dave Magadan.
Here's the team batting averages from the UT. You be the judge.
