Random Padres Thoughts…
It’s been a looooong time since I’ve last blogged, I know. But I have a really good excuse. Well, excuses.
First of all, I just wrote a 50,000 word novel for this thing called NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November, and I have been very busy pounding that out. But I got it done :)
Secondly, things are super super slow in Padres World. Of course, there’s the trade rumors about Adrian, but I honestly don’t think that the Padres are going to trade him this offseason. I mean, what’s the point? He’s playing for us at a riduculously low price, and is Kyle Blanks really ready to play first full time in the majors? I say we keep Adrian, have Kyle get a little more seasoning in the minors, and trade Adrian next year, if at all.
There were a lot of comments against my last entry about Kouz’s not getting the Gold Glove, and that’s cool with me. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and my opinion is that Kouz should have recieved the Gold Glove.
In some exciting news, the season ticket sales are up a lot more than last year, and I think that’s a really good thing for the organization. It’s good to see that people are getting excited about all the changes in Padres baseball and they’re willing to make a commitment to the rebuilding of this team.
Only a few months until Spring Training…
