Open Thread, 7/23: Diego vs Francisco

What are the steps to blowing a lead in the standings after summer break?

  1. Get swept in your first series back

  2. Have your All-Star closer blow two saves and turn them into losses

  3. Lose three straight to the team that's just behind you.
Those are the three steps. The three ingredients to Swept Pie. And now we're here in second place. But it's not even a comfy second place as Arizona's tied with us and ready to pounce. And we're like a little bunny rabbit that's allergic to peanuts, peeing on ourselves while people keep force feeding us peanut pie.

Can somebody tell the Padres that we're back from vacation now?
