Confidence was oozing from the pores of Padres fans after the sweep of the Cubs. Then Padres pitchers traveled to Milwaukee where the Brewers gently bent them over and made sweet love to their backsides. Thankfully Jon Garland told the Brewers hitters that he had a headache and didn't want to share intimate time with them.
In the end the Pads went 5-2 last week and hold a 6 game lead in the NL West. They also passed another important milestone. They flew by 71 wins which was the universally accepted win total prediction by just about everybody in the media.
I think the Padres' Sunday record is a big reason why we're so confident on Mondays when we vote. Most of the time we like to think we're not as reactionary as other fans, but deep down we're probably just the same. If it wasn't for the Padres' 15-5 record on Sundays, these polls would probably average a good point lower. That's my hypothesis anyway.
I wish we had some sort of chart or graph to visualize these results.
The rules are simple. On a scale of 0 to 10, 0 being no confidence at all, 10 being absolute confidence, How confident are you in the San Diego Padres organization?
"Confidence" is just about anything you want to interpret it as. The front office, the future prospects, the play on the field, the park, etc etc etc
