End of the Road

What a nasty series. I thought we were supposed to be better than the Diamondbacks!!! Ugh.

Well, at least the first game was amazing. The story of the game was Kevin Correia, new ace. We signed K-Cor in the offseason, and he’s done incrediblely well this year. Sure, he’s had some rough patches, but he’s definitely been a huge positive this year.

On Friday, he went nine innings, allowing no runs on six hits with one walk and seven strikeouts. How cool is that?? He was amazing!! That was definitely one of his best starts this year. Wow. He really held down the Diamondbacks. Great job, Kevin. Great job.

Buuuut then things kind of went downhill. In the second game of the series, we were right in it…until Chad Tracy hit a grand slam. It was not good. We got all our momentum sucked out of us as we lost 8-5.

Next game was pretty much the same story. We were right it, even coming from behind, but the Diamondbacks got some late big hits and won the game 7-4.

What on earth is up with the Diamondbacks beating us? It’s all very strange. I mean, we’re a better team than Arizona. And yet they pretty much dominated us in the last two games. Weird.  

Instant replay was used for the first time in a Padres game yesterday. It was kind of cool, but the call went against us. Oh well.

Dude, there’s only FIVE games left in the Padres’ season!! I am soooo sad!! I’m going to miss my boys like crazy. BUT I am so thankful that I get to go to one more Padres game tomorrow. It will be my fifth game of the season, which is super cool for me because my favorite number is five (because of Kouz, obviously). Hopefully, it will be my fifth win of the season. That would be epic.

Speaking of my baby, check out this section from the AP: 

San Diego third baseman Kevin Kouzmanoff, who has missed the last 17 games with thigh and back injuries, went through a full pregame workout Sunday. “I wouldn’t be surprised if he started Tuesday,” manager Bud Black

AHHHHHHHHHHHH YES!!!!! I think I’m going to cry when he’s announced tomorrow. Oh goodness, I miss him sooooo much!! Yeah, I’m totally going to cry. It’s going to be sooo much fun to see him out there on the field tomorrow.

Something rather sad entered my mind yesterday. It may be a tough offseason again. Kouz might be on the trading block. And believe me, if you thought my reactions to Trevor and Jake’s departures were bad, you can’t imagine what it would be like if Kouz got traded. Oh man. Let’s just pray that the Padres see enough worth in Kouz to stick with him. I need my #5!!!

GO PADRES!!!

I hope you guys smack the Sith Lords into next Tuesday. If you’d had Kouz, you probably would have swept us. It was luck that brought us through the last two games. And Chad Tracy. Have fun at the game!

I can’t even imagine your Kouz getting traded after what you went through with Trevor and Jake, so don’t even go there! Just enjoy the rest of the season being the spoilers.

Kaybee,
I hope to see you tomorrow. I will be between 3rd base and Visitor’s dugout. I hope your Kouz does stady with the Padres. We need more players to stay put with one team. I hope he likes in SD.

Its amazing to think how this season, especially for us Tribe fans (so many losses!) has carried on so long and is finally coming to an end.

Loved the post Kaybee as always. And I think both of us need a break from baseball huh?

Loving the indians is hard enough as be.

Just hoping for a good off season – and a hopeful preseason before another heartbreaking letdown occurs.

Please stop by new post up ;-)

I really, REALLY like Kevin Correia. We definitely need him next year as a number one or two starter. Look how much he did for the season. Signing a minor league deal in spring training to first career complete game shutout. That’s an accomplishment. WE NEED KOUZ!!

I hope they keep Kouz! And it sounds like Kevin had a great game!
