Padres Survive

Sorry, been off at my other Blogs. The Roberts hearings are boring but interesting. Not everyday we get to see a possibly/likely Chief Justice on the hot seat.

Heard Ted saying that Wednesday's victory was the most important regular season game in the history of the Padres. Christ, can we get someone else on 1090 during afternoon drive time? I like Ted, but as a play-by-play guy, not a talk show host. What about Chris Ellow?

I'm worried about Peavy. Should we put him on the shelf until the playoffs? We need him for those games more then we need him now. Just a thought, Bochy.

I was trying to figure out who we want to win the Wildcard. I know this is an old discussion but.... we want to play the ATL, right? We've played them well this year. So the rule is, playoff teams can not play teams in their own divisions, so we need the Strows or the Phillies to win the wildcard. If the Fish win, then we play the bud birds and that might not be fun.

Speaking of Wildcards teams, the DC come to town tonight and are still in the hunt, just 5 ***CORRECTION - 2.5**** games back in the Wildcard race. Needless to say, they will be playing tough and so should we. Of course, we are lousy coming out of an off day, so hold on tight Padre fan.

Hey, going to another game compliments of my fifth grader. He's a crossing guard and they have crossing guard night at the old ball yard. Its the 26th again the Giants. Could be a key game, maybe like a clinching game, depending on how the next week goes.

Go Padres!

1. No more off days for the boys. We got the DC, the CO, the AZ, the Gigantes, and Dogbones. Mediocrity playing more mediocrity. What fun.

2. Don't get me wrong, sure beats playing out the string and being spoilers, like so many years past.

3. Why is it that Chris Ellow (spelling?) is always relegated to the weekends? I've not met a sports radio devotee who doesn't like Chris and his rap. If they can put Rome back on 1090, they can certainly promote Chris to drive time.
