Open Thread, 9/25: Padres vs Dodgers

I can't wait for Monday. On Monday, it's a whole new chapter. Today, we play and hope that nobody gets hurt.

I've been light on the blogging because it doesn't really bring me joy to write about bad play when there's no hope for improvement. Why dream of a big signing when it's not gonna happen? There's nothing to trade. No indication that the team is going to improve in the off season.

It would also be one thing if we didn't see it coming, but we saw it coming pretty early. You don't just sit on your hands and expect a .363 winning percentage to magically change.

And to top it off, the baseball is so boring. Sure, I can appreciate a 1-0 pitchers duel with every other baseball fan, but I'll sure as hell enjoy a 10-9 slugfest a lot more. Or better yet, let's be winning games 7-1 or 11-2. Wouldn't that be fun? Let's make that the goal.

GO PADRES! BE INTERESTING!
