Game Thread: 07/31 Padres vs. Cardinals

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The trade deadline is really looming now. Deno's out and with our natural rivals, the Mariners, now. But baseball goes on and today we get a chance to sweep the Cardinals, which is just fantastic. Something about beating the Cards is just so satisfying.

Our boy Odes is looking to bounce back from something of a rough outing in his last start. Our Padres are coming off a 12-run night (!!!!) and it's looking more and more like we WON THE TRADE with the Yankees that brought us Yangervis Solarte to harness the power of the sun for our offense. SOLAR POWER IS THE FUTURE OF THIS CLUB.

Now let's get this party started. Feel free to talk trade deadline stuff in here, but we do also have an open thread specifically for that purpose.

So, what's everyone having for lunch?
