The season is ending way too fast. I feel like I never take a break from these posts. Granted, it is an "every series" post, but the series' are ending way too fast. It wasn't like this in July and August.

But, September?

It's all ending so fast.

There's only 2 more series' left in the season and I'm not ready for all this to stop.

In the last series, I named Derek Norris the series MVP because I felt he should get it.

Really no reason other than that.

Seemed right.

Fair.

Just.

Yeah, this is easy. You're either picking two of the fastest guys on the team or you're picking the only left-hander who has started for the Padres in 2015.

Cory Spangenberg and Travis Jankowski are the speediest players on the field and showed it with their doubles and triples this weekend. Jankowski had an incredible catch in center on Sunday to help James Shields out. Unfortunately, he's not 12 feet tall because that would have helped keep that homer from leaving the park later in the game.

Robbie Erlin pitched a fantastic 7 innings on Saturday night to get the only win for the Padres during the series. Erlin only gave up 2 hits and 1 walk while recording 4 strikeouts for his first win since September 18th, 2014.

So, that's the ballot.

Vote for the Series MVP below.
