I know it's been months since I contributed to this blog, but I just remembered why. The Padres don't inspire me. There's no excitement, no passion, no drama.
According to Scott Miller over at CBS Sportsline, drama doesn't hurt, it helps.
Yep, the San Francisco Fightin' Giants.
Yep, the Los Angeles Dukin' Dodgers.
So this begs the question of who on the Padres is ready to throw down for the benefit of the team, AND the fans for another NL pennant? Here's my list of match-ups that I'd pay money to see...
Cruiserweight division (El Cajon style):
Brian "Broadway" Giles vs Marcus "Jamacha" Giles
Adrian "La Posta" Gonzalez vs Paul "Chunk" McAnulty
Special match to the death:
Greg "The Professor" Maddux vs David "Fat Man" Wells
