Me and My Gang
It’s all for one and ONE FOR ALL YA’LL
It’s a brother and a sister kinda thang
Raise up your hands if you all wanna hang with
With me and my gang
We live to ride, we ride to live
Me and my gang
Jump on that train
Grab a hold of them reins
We gonna rock this thang, cock this thang
Me and my gang
Today in the Latest Leaders I got #15, which is the best I have ever ranked. So, first of all, a HUGE thank you to all my readers. You guys have been amazing!!
Lately I have really grown to like Rascal Flatts. Their music is pretty amazing, and one of my favorite CDs is Me and My Gang.
I thought this song was kind of appropriate for the Padres. Kind of seems like a Jake Peavy song, ya know?
The Padres and their fans are on an amazing adventure right now. Hey, five-game winning streak and on top of the NL West. This season is going to be exciting, at least for a while. I think the Padres fans have been skeptical of this winning team, but more and more are coming behind them and joining the party. We don’t know where our Padres are going, but it will be so much fun to find out.
I know that I, for one, will be sticking by these Padres all year, even if Monday night was the last game we will win this year. Even if we lose Jake Peavy (oh boy), even if we don’t lose another game this year. Even if this team crashes and burns. It’s not easy, I found that out last year. But I’m going to stick by this team no matter what.
So, jump on that train, grab a hold of them reins, let’s rock this thang, cock this thang…me and my gang/Padres!!
Today, in my dedication to #15, I’m going to mention 15 members of my gang who have had superb performances in the last week.
GANG MEMBER #15
Luke Gregerson has been excellent this week. He’s gone five innings, giving up only three hits and that’s it. He’s been able to get out of bases-loaded-with-no-outs jams, and he’s been absolutely solid.
GANG MEMBER #14
Adrian Gonzalez has been warming up over the week. He has eight hits, seven RBIs, and two home runs in eight games. He’s going to be so good this year!
GANG MEMBER #13
Scott Hairston is a stellar ballplayer, man. He’s been so solid this week, with some spectacular catches in center field, as well as some blast from the plate. This guy can flat-out play!
GANG MEMBER #12
Luis Rodriguez has been pretty good in the past week. He’s played in seven games, with three hits and four RBIs. But check this out: he has eight walks! Wow, that’s pretty good. But understandable since he’s been hitting low in the lineup, usually right before the pitcher.
GANG MEMBER #11
Duaner Sanchez has kind of gone under the radar, but he’s been solid for the Padres. He’s thrown three innings, allowing nothing but a walk. He came into some essential games, too, like Monday when the Padres had a one-run lead.
GANG MEMBER #10
Heath Bell has had no problems taking over Trevor Hoffman’s job as closer on the Padres. He has four saves in four opportunities so far this season.
GANG MEMBER #9
David Eckstein has been an excellent pickup for the Padres. He’s had some great at-bats, even though they didn’t always end up in a positive result. Still, he’s been very solid in his hitting and his defense.
GANG MEMBER #8
Chase Headley has been playing very well for the Padres. He has six hits and five RBIs in eight games. He also has two home runs, and great defense in left field.
GANG MEMBER #7
Henry Blanco was not signed by the Padres for his offense, but San Diego has recieved some of it anyway. In addition to catching some excellent games, Henry has two home runs already.
GANG MEMBER #6
Chris Young has throw 13 innings so far, allowing only two earned runs with 12 strikeouts. He has earned two wins, beating Randy Wolf and Tim Lincecum.
GANG MEMBER #5
Jody Gerut has five hits so far, including a home run and three doubles. He’s also had stellar defense in center. It’s been so much fun to watch him…
GANG MEMBER #4
Brian Giles has five hits and four walks, but has not come through in a lot of big situations, like bases loaded with no outs. His defense has been superb, though. He knows that right field corner in PETCO so well!
GANG MEMBER #3
Nick Hundley has definitley improved at the plate from last year. I think he’s going to have a really good offensive year. His catching has also been great.
GANG MEMBER #2
OH MY GOODNESS!!! That picture is soooooo cute!!! WOW, I totally love it!!! Ah, where was I? Oh yes, Kevin Kouzmanoff’s amazingness! He has six hits so far. I think he’s still warming up. He’ll get better as the season goes on… Just look at that guy. Wow.
GANG MEMBER #1
Jake Peavy’s first start wasn’t the best, but his second was incredible. In 15.1 innings pitched, he has 18 strikeouts. I am so thankful that he’s still here in San Diego, and I hope he will be sticking around for a long time.
Again, thanks so much to all my readers! Without you guys, this blog has no meaning. Keep checking back here for all the latest Padres news!
Today the Padres are playing the Mets again, Kevin Correia against Oliver Perez. GO PADRES!!!
