That's a good title if I do say so myself.

It's ridiculous that the Padres are even in this NL West race.  These other teams must be terrible. The Padres ace, Mat Latos, was lit up today leading to the worst loss of the year.  The other pitchers weren't so hot either. On the bright side the Padres scored 4 times and didn't make any errors.

You know how the big selling point of the team during the off season was how they finished the 2009 season?  We were told how the team would pick up right where they left off .  I wonder if the same will hold true in 2011.  If so the Padres should change their marketing plan to make being a Padres fan sound dangerous. Stamp a health advisory on each ticket and brag about the number of hearts they've broken.  It works for cigarette companies and guys who ride motorcycles.

Padres play again tomorrow.  Not sure if that's good or bad.
