Behind Lawrence, Padres 2 Reds 0

Sloppy play haunted the San Diego Padres all day on Sunday. This was a grandma's drive through the park and one has to wonder if certain players are not giving their all. It is amazing they came away with the victory for Brian Lawrence. The Friars also take the series with two shutouts in the three game set.

I Can See Clearly Now…Almost. Part I

While it may seem that a team that could lose 100 games this year couldn't possibly be a contender for next year, I am here to tell you that the San Diego Padres could and should contend next year. I really believe this team is not far away and with a few key acquisitions, could be right in the thick of things. They have some good hitters all around and seem to be setting themselves up nicely for their entrance into the new ballbark, um, excuse me, the ball park.
