Random Padres Thoughts

  • I'm concerned that the 2004-2007 seasons are being touted as the model for Padres success. I hated each and every one of those seasons. I go back and read our thoughts from each September and it's like reading a diary of torture. Each team gave new meaning to the word "frustrating". I think there is something wrong with the Padres goals when all they want is for a team to play important games in September.
  • There was nothing satisfying about the division titles in 2005 and 2006. I'll take a 1996 divisional race over the 2005-2006 clubs any day of the week, even though each of those seasons ended with the Padres being booted from the playoffs in the first series.
  • Dex is working on an Enjoyment Index, so we can figure out what factors make a season enjoyable.
  • Do we really need coaches and managers if players possess Sandy Alderson's all knowing Padres Organizational Philosophy Manual?
  • If Moores was present this season instead of dealing with his divorce I'd like to be a fly on the wall during Alderson's review. I don't think Moores would dress him down or anything, I'd just like to see what is said. "So this is the team you guys thought was going to win 90 games?"
  • I can't believe we are rebuilding again.
