Coming fresh off a sweep, the Padres lose to one of the worst teams in the known galaxy

Lucky for the rating of this particular game, I've found that losses after wins tend to not be viewed as badly. Also, this game happened while I was watching Iron Man 3 (#humblebrag) so I missed most of it and only caught the last few outs, so this will be like my camping rating.

I heard Cody Ransom did some good things, which is good for him because I think he's probably a nice guy, but at the same time he probably did those things to get back at the Padres, which is ironic because if he was doing those good things while he was with the Padres, we never would've let him go and hence he'd have nothing to be angry about and we would've won tonight.

But what's done is done, and Cody Ransom is a Cub and there's no changing that (#fixedtime).

In other news, I read Saga Volume One, and liked it a lot. Archer and Armstrong Volume One was also excellent. Between those two books, there's probably a great analogy to be made about how really great things happen when you think outside the box or listen to ghosts or something. I also read Hawkeye My Life As A Weapon and liked it only to be distracted by the different artists. I like my books to have a consistent team the whole way through. The art and story was nice though. Felt very much like Death The High Cost of Living somehow. Maybe because it's so emo.

I digress. Vote how you really feel or else, like Ford Prefect subtly warned us, we'll just keep electing lizards.
