12 Games Left
Well, there are mercifully only 12 games left in this miserable season. I can’t believe how bad this month has been. We’re literally playing all NL West rivals all month, and it’s doing nothing but damage to this team.
Really, though, this season hasn’t been that bad. We’ve been in the basement all season, so there’s been no expectations, no panicky attempt to get out of it, no energy. I think that’s the problem. I don’t know about you, but I didn’t feel very much energy coming from this team at all. They almost seemed content in the cellar. And that is not a good feeling to have.
I am going to be sad when the season ends. I love following Padres baseball, and the offseason is always so long and sad without baseball. But it’s no fun to have a losing team. I can’t possibly think of anything that will help the team, since we practically have no money. It seems like there’s no possible way this losing trend will even end. We’re just not up to the caliber of the big teams with all the money. How are we supposed to compete with the likes of the Yankees and the Red Sox? I’m not just talking about on the field. How will we ever be able to get enough money to sign players who have legitimate talent and star power?
It’s been an endless cycle for the past 42 years. When will it ever, ever end?
We are pathetic.
