Padres back in first place with 11 games to go

New, 20 comments

I have a copy of Buddy Black's game plan here.  He hands it to someone in the crowd after a game just like a band will give away their set list after a show for a souvenir. This person in the crowd paged my beeper and I called them back and they read it to me over the pay phone.  Let me share it with you now.

  1. Task Tim Stauffer with assignment to pitch his ass off.  Throw filthy disgusting pitches.
  2. Have Aaron Cunningham use the power of flight to rob Dodgers of extra base hits.
  3. Ask Miguel Tejada to hit 300th home run. Do the Spotlight thing, people enjoy that.
  4. Bring Luke Gregerson into game to hold lead for 37th time of the year.  Set Major League record if applicable.
  5. Have Heath Bell make fans just a little bit nervous then destroy opposition, saving game.
  6. Take First Place out for a night on the town.

Looks like everything went according to plan.
