Divorces are getting a lot of attention in the world of baseball lately and don’t be surprised if Greg Maddux tries to divorce My Padres. He certainly could based on non-support at home.
Again last night the Sand and Navy could only muster one run against Ricky Nolasco of the Marlins. Nolasco won his 10th game of the season and looked very good doing it. However, disposing of the Padres lineup right now may not be anything to shout about.
The Padres are still only 9.5 games out, but they are now chasing two teams instead of one which makes a comeback very difficult at best. I’d just be happy to start playing better baseball, then see what deals we can make at the trade deadline to help us in the future. Randy Wolf’s start tonight is very important because he is one of the few players we have who has/had some decent trade value. He has struggled a great deal his last few starts, but reportedly has regained his form in the bullpen. Let’s hope for the best…
