For completion's sake, I add this game recap...

Honestly, I've said it before, but Jeff Suppan was not supposed to be here. Regardless of how down on this team you may be, you were not expecting Jeff Suppan to be pitching games for us in May and yet here he is holding things down like a boss.

Would we have won this game with one of the other half a dozen options that were supposed to be here before Jeff Suppan?

Probably not. Maybe yes. But probably not.

Either way, I take this as a moral victory.

Go Padres.
