Open Thread, 6/17: Padres vs Mariners

New, 177 comments

The Padres continue their quest for the fabled consecutive innings without scoring a run streak. I believe they can do it. I believe with all my heart.

Another thing that I believe is that these so called younger players that Kevin Towers is alluding to should just go ahead and be given ABs. Brian Giles is not Tony Gwynn. When we sucked back at the turn of the century, there was still some benefit to continue starting our aging right fielder. Now, there is no such benefit. I want to see other people.

Another thing I believe is that Ichiro Suzuki is super likable. Are there people who don't like Ichiro? Is there any sort of backlash against him? I know jbox sometimes says he doesn't like him, but I think that's cause Jonny Dub likes Ichiro too much, which makes jbox jealous.

Don't forget about your haiku.

our team can not score
our pitchers are unhealthy
but yet we will win
