Time to rate another game. This time. The Padres answer back yesterday's shellacking by administering their own shellacking and, this time, not letting the other team back into it. Just beat the other guy and then move along.

Meanwhile, we all wait with baited breath as the Dodgers take on the Giants and eyeball their place in the cellar. I try and do the thought experiment of, If my team spent a ton of money with no apparent plan and performed like sh_t would I be more or less pissed than a team that doesn't spend a lot of money, while claiming to have a plan and performing like sh_t.

I think I take the plan. Maybe. Who knows.
