#5 ♥

Well, it’s been four days since the season ended. It’s been rough, that’s for sure. Especially since everyone who thought that the Padres were not going anywhere this season are back in full force saying, I told you so! It’s extremely frustrating, but what can you do. The only consolement I’m getting is that I believed all season and I didn’t give up. I was right there with my boys the whole time, and man they had an incredible season.

As the offseason goes on, I’ll be writing some season-rememberance stuff, but right now I kind of want to review my personal season of blogging.

Let me tell you, this year has been absolutely amazing. I didn’t blog as consistently as I have in years past, but this blog has really had a great year. In 2009, I was around the 20s in the Latest Leader list. This season I jumped up to number 10 and number 11. That’s where I was for most of the year until I jumped up to #6 in August and now, I was #5 in the top fan blogs list. I’m soooo excited!!!

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know that my all-time favorite baseball player is Kevin Kouzmanoff, whose number is 5. I’ve always wanted to be #5 on the list so that I could do a dedication to him and I’m soo excited that it’s finally happened!!

Since there’s a lot of recaps going around, I’m going to review Kouz’s season. I didn’t really talk about him much this season because I was so focused on the Padres’ first-place dominance, but I think it’ll be cool to see how he did after he was so sadly shipped away from the Padres.

Kouz was traded to the Oakland A’s on January 16th, 2010, in exchange for Scott Hairston and Aaron Cunningham.

He hit .247 with 16 homers and 71 RBIs. He played in 143 games, and of course, his back acted up near the end of the season and he was out for a few weeks.

His fielding stats, though, are no where near as impressive as last year. Remember that when he had three errors all season and a .990 fielding percentage and he didn’t get a Gold Glove? That was so sad. Man. But anyways, he had 12 errors this year, and a .968 fielding percentage. So, not too bad, but not as great as last year.

On another matter, he’s still as adorable as ever ;)

I missed you a lot this season, Kouz. Definitely not the same without you, and your trade even effected my fanhood just a little. I’m glad you had a great season with the A’s, and I hope that someday you’ll be able to play in San Diego again. Love you!!!!!

Thank you guys sooo much for your great support. Thank you for getting me to #5. This blog would be meaningless if no one read it, so thank you so much for reading. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy putting it together. You guys are amazing!!!! 

GO PADRES!!! GO KEVIN KOUZMANOFF!!! GO #5!!!!

Congrats on #5! You must be stoked. Haha. I forgot about Kouz during the regular season. Oops. Maybe he’ll be back in San Diego. Who knows? :) Hope to see you keep blogging during the offseason, Padres buddy!

Kaybee: Congratulations girl! #5 is definitely something to smile about! Congrats to you, and to your Padres for opening everyone’s eyes. I definitely hope to see you around here at MLBlogs. Are you going to watch the postseason games?

Congrats on the great season on your blog. I can’t even begin to imagine how frustrating the ending to the Padres season was for their fans, but as you said they exceeded a lot of expectations. I expect them to be right back up there among the leaders next season. Just like my Jays, they traded away their ace and improved.

If it’s any consolations the Padres were seriously the most evil scary thing this year. For a second there I thought they would make the Wild Card and be evil and scary all over again. I’m sorry your team is out but I’m also really glad they’re out because man what a nightmare they were!

Congrats on getting #5 like you wanted. Funny how the ‘told you so’ people never appear when they are wrong and always have 20/20 vision when they know things aren’t how you wanted them to be.

Padres kicked butt nonetheless! They fought hard and that’s worth celebrating! Nothing to be ashamed of!

Best of luck next season and I hope you enjoy the postseason :) The Pads will be back with full force!
