The San Diego Padres

8 posts in this topic

Have now lost 10 in a row.

The Giants could be just one game back in the West after tonight.

It's been a long time since a team lead a division by 7 or 8 games heading into September only to collpase. Of course, the Padres have no business being in the playoffs in the first place.

If they do make the playoffs whatever team gets them in the 1st round will probably sweep as the Padre offense is pathetic and their pitching has come back to earth.

If the Padres regather themselves they could win the World Series. Saw a Chicago White Sox team do almost this exact same thing in 2005, then lose only one game in the playoffs.

Holy crap, are there any Padres you would take over the 2005 Whitwe Sox roster?

The 2005 White Sox weren't all that. The Angels should have come home with a 2-0 lead if not for Doug Dickface, the umpire with the "mechanic."

Padres were 76-49. This is the first adversity they have faced all year. If they figure out a way to win again, a ton of pressure comes off and they play with the house's money in the playoffs. Saw the aforementioned White Sox do it. Saw the Angels do it in 02. Those Angels lost like five in a row trying to clinch the last spot over Seattle. Finally beat Texas 10-4 behind Lackey and after that they were unbeatable.

Pressure can do funny things to a team. Getting rid of pressure can make a team play 10 times better.

Now in a 1st place tie with the Giants after losing the first 2 of 4 against the Giants. Do or die time.

The Padres have lost 22 of 34 games since Aug. 25 and now trail by 3 games with 3 to play. CYA, tremendous choke job.

The Giants should be interesting in the playoffs. Their rotation has the best chance to kick the Phillies out of their World Series aspirations.

Lincecum, Cain, Sanchez could give the Phils a run for their money.

Wilson>Lidge as well.

as a baseball fan, i would love to see this series. as a phillies fan id rather see the braves.

i think the phils could handle lincecum and cain but sanchez is always awesome against the phillies.

    • Jesus. A 3-4 OLB at #8? Two major off-field character concerns in the 2nd round? Another slow WR in the 3rd? Never. Gonna. Happen. There's at least a decent chance that his top three picks won't even be on our draft board. Gettleman has said numerous times in the past that guys who aren't scheme fits for us aren't on our draft board. There goes McKinley. Given our past with guys like Carruth and Hardy, there's zero chance that Mixon is on our board. Given Robinson's off-field issues involving a stolen gun, I'd say there's a better than average chance that he's not on our board either. You'd be hard pressed to come up with a more unrealistic mock draft for the Panthers if you set out to try to do just that.
    • I can't say that any one of those guys ends up a Panther.  I think if Cam is there at 40 (which I doubt), then we would likely pull the trigger.
    • The need by some Americans here and across the country to demonize only select individuals for rioting (ahem, minorities) speaks directly to the fact that we've really made little actual progress since witnessing unrest in our streets dating back to the civil rights era. Ask yourself truthfully, what has really changed when the first thing some white people can think of even today in 2017 when they see a black person "rioting" is, "why are these black people so angry?"? But then white people rioting over a sporting event or a pumpkin festival is viewed as harmless tomfoolery.  If you as not only an American but also a basic human being fail to see the difference in the dynamic at play here as it pertains to the response to these instances, you are part of the problem whether you realize it or not.
