Elusive As The Win

Well, what can I say? I mean, really. We lost. Again. We needed that game so badly, and we lost. It’s the bullpen’s fault, as usual.

Kevin Correia started, but only went 3.1 innings, allowing five runs on eight hits. Not good. Correia’s pitch count went way up way early, but I think Buddy was fighting for this game. OK, Kevin can’t pitch tonight, so he’s coming out. Bring in the next guy, see what he can do.

In the bottom of the third, the Padres got three runs to make the score 5-3 Rockies. We got the runs on a error, and single by Scott Hairston, and a groundout.

Edward Mujica threw a solid inning, striking out three.

In the bottom of the fifth, we took our only lead of the game on Scott Hairston’s three run homer. It seemed like that was the momentum shifter to the Padres side, but unfortunately, it was not meant to be.

In the top of the seventh, Edwin Moreno got the bases loaded with one out. Cla Meredith came in, and promptly allowed a grand slam to Chris Iannetta. ARGH!!!!

And…that was essentially it. We died, going down 1-2-3 in the next three innings excepting Scott Hairston’s double in the eighth. Luke Gregerson and Arturo Lopez had scoreless innings. 

We’re not hitting right now. Last night we got four hits. This makes me want to cry! Scott Hairston got three of them. Luis Rodriguez had the other one. We’re not hitting, we not pitching, it’s a miracle that we got six runs last night!!

Well, we needed that game. Now, the fans are giving up, and the players have got to be discouraged. We’ve lost our last six games. We’re 7.5 games behind.

We’re pathetic. I just don’t know what to do with this team.

Maybe some more restictions are in order…

9) No more luxury lockers.

And of course, there will be no s’mores allowed. Just Vegemite.

I wanted to give a quick shoutout to my mom, whose birthday is today. Happy birthday Mom! Thanks so much for everything :)

IMG_4137.JPGTonight, we had better win…or else the Padres may find themselves without any showers at all! Josh Geer will go for the win against Aaron Cook. Oh great. Jen, cheer for my Padres. Cheer for them hard!! 

Keeping the faith…

GO PADRES!!!

We all know it would never happen…but wouldn’t it be something if players got their pay docked for bad performance? Don’t they want to re-work their deals if they have a big year?Russhttp://wight4256.mlblogs.com

Happy Birthday to your mom. I think a lot of teams are suffering from bullpen disorder right now. Very maddening!

Happy b-day to your mom! Hope your guys start winning a little bit. Maybe they should have their texting/tweeting priveleges taken away!

A birthday on Cinco De Mayo! Crazyness, but also cool. Mucho margaritas for mom : ) I liked the restrictions but I’m sure the players hope you never own the team ; )

I like these restrictions. Except for the no candy rule. That is just mean and cruel.

Although a very funny post, it sucks that the Padres are losing the way they are.

…but the Rangers are winning!
