Well Friar Faithful, I do my best to homer-up or get over emotional, etc........but this season is seriously on the verge of flat lining. This team can't hit, and the bullpen continues to give up leads late in games. Now you can blame the offense all you'd like, but if they get your a lead going into the 7th or 8th, and you can't hold it.......well time to point the finger where it belongs.......squarely on the bullpen !! This weekend the Padres lost 2 of 3 in Seattle, and blew leads in the two losses, one in the 7th when Cla Meredith gave up the game winning HR, and the other in the 8th when Heath Bell couldn't shut the door.
Now comes news that Jake Peavy was sent to San Diego for an MRI on his elbow that is causing him discomfort. THAT'S all this team needs is for it's staff ace, and face guy to have problems. But again lets not get over emotional until we know for sure what's going on.
So stay tuned and I'll also be bringing farm updates and letting you know when our next Elsinore trip is going to be.
Play Ball !!
