The Padres are on a seven-game losing streak.
It’s not good. It’s not good at all.
So can anyone tell me what on earth is going wrong?!?!?!?
From what I can tell, this team is just not playing as a team anymore. I mean, before, the pitching and defense and hitting was all perfectly together. But now, the defense isn’t helping the pitching, the hitting isn’t helping the pitching, and the pitching isn’t helping the hitting.
Am I the only one who thinks that getting swept by the Diamondbacks was an absolutely unacceptable thing to do? Getting swept by the Phillies I understand. They’re an amazing team. But the Diamondbacks? The team that is the last to our first? It’s just humiliating.
Now our lead is a ton un-safer. The Giants have moved to within three games of our first-place lead. Pretty scary, but I’m sure that the boys will be able to get things back into the winning mode.
Thankfully, it’s past September 1st. So if any of our players are starting to not help the club, we can just put another guy in there. One thing I’m really excited about is Cory Luebke making his first major league start tomorrow night. Who knows? Maybe he’ll become just the key piece that we need to get back on track.
Another super super super exciting thing is Chris Young. He pitched in an actual game for the first time in months a few nights ago and he did great. That was a HUGE step. I don’t know how much longer it’ll be until he can come pitch in the majors, but it was a step and huge progress. Better to be pitching, than not pitching.
So, I’m not too worried about this little slide. Frustrated? Oh yeah. But one little seven-game losing streak is not going to turn me off to this team. In fact, it just makes my fanhood stronger 🙂
