Open Thread, 4/18: Padres vs Diamondbacks or Sweep?

New, 575 comments

Now, I think the Padres have it in them to sweep and I'm putting up the Open Thread today for a shot at getting a Sweep myself.

Wade LeBlanc goes against Ian Kennedy. Kennedy got the no decision against us when we saw him last, but the Diamondbacks got the win, which spiraled us below .500.

It would be fitting, nay poetic, to climb back to .500 by defeating Ian Kennedy. I am rooting for this to happen. It would also be nice to win three in a row, just to prove that it can be done. Then all of your fairweather co-workers will be able to say stuff like, "They won three in a row and they're just at .500? They're streaky!"

Sometimes people like to use terms like "streaky" when other people point out to the first group of people that a streak has happened and that a previous streak has happened.

Game starts soon! Get pumped! Spring time is the perfect time to sweep! GO PADRES!!!
