Not Giving Up
Well, here we are again. Forced to share first place with the Giants. It’s not pleasant, but I guess if we have to endure it for a day, then there’s not much we can do about it.
Not only that, but the Rockies, who we are playing tonight, have come out of nowhere and are now only 1.5 games behind!! No one said this would be easy, I guess.
I don’t know about you, but I’d much, much rather have a very safe lead than a very unsafe lead. Maybe some of you like all this crazy drama stuff, but this is too nerve-wracking for me. I guess it does make things interesting.
What a bizarre situation we’ve gotten ourselves into! Our biggest rivals for most of the season come into our house and take three out of four, tying themselves with us for first place. Then, the day after, we go to Colorado who is right behind us at 1.5 games!!! It’s just way too crazy. Just saying, we’d better get out of this ASAP.
Even though this situation is ridiculously crazy, I am not giving up on my boys. They dug this hole for themselves and they’re the ones who are going to get out of it, but I’m going to be there to support them all along the way. They’re scaring me like crazy, but I’m sticking with them.
I believe that we’ll be able to get out of this little jam. I’m not exactly sure how, but I think they’ll be able to do. We’ve come so far. We can’t give up now.
Needless to say, tonight is a MUST WIN GAME. The Giants are idle, and the Rockies must be beaten. The San Diego First-Place Padres need a win.
Guys, please. Pitching, hold down their hitters. Hitters, for goodness sakes, find your bats already. Defense, you know what you need to do. Let’s get back together and get a win. We need it!!!
GO FIRST-PLACE PADRES!!!!!!
The NL West is turning into a tight race – exciting for those of us in other divisions, but I’m sure very nerve-wracking for you! Of course, please don’t talk to me about the race between the Phillies and Braves right now…
