Now Or Never

We’re one game away from elimination in the NL West, and we’re playing our rivals for it for the next three games.

We’re two games away from elimination in the NL Wild Card, and I don’t know what the Braves are up to, but they seem to be on quite the roll.

This is not good.

Everything’s at stake here. If we want any chance at the playoffs, we absolutely have to sweep the Giants. Impossible? No. But I have to admit that I’m not feeling that great about our Padres. Is anybody? The way they’ve played this week has been heartbreaking. This is not the first-place team that we saw for most of the season. What did you guys do with them?

I don’t know if it’s possible, but I really really hope the Padres can find that team before 7:15 tonight. And I hope the Giants can find the team that was trailing the Padres all season.

I’m not worried about the pitching at all; we’ve got Clayton Richard, Tim Stauffer, and Mat Latos going. The thing I am worried about is the offense. They have completely lost it this week and if they want to get back into this thing, they absolutely need to find their bats. FIND THEM ALREADY!!!

No matter what, I’m cheering for these boys. Even though it hurts a lot, I’m going to be cheering for them hard. There’s too much at stake not to support them through this. I just hope that we get a fighting chance.

So give me something to believe…
