Whoop That Bitch ……. Whoop That Bitch !
If there’s a time to be concerned then now would be it if you’re a San Diego Padres’ (79-60) fan. This team is falling faster than a meteorite descending from the sky. The Padres under Bud Black are now in danger of seeing their lead in the NL West be erased by the San Francisco Giants. Now as we know the NL West much like the AL West is not seen as powerhouse divisions within either league. But low and behold the baseball being played there borders on being so diabolical that it has you wondering what in the hell is going on.
The Padres’ pitching is pitifully woeful and their offense has become so putrid that in essence were this fecal matter you’d be vomiting all over the place. Should the Padres go down then they’ve no one to blame but themselves . The momentum seems to be lost and the San Francisco Giants are now looking to take advantage of the seismic meltdown by the Padres as they are now within one game of the division leaders. And Bruce Bochy’s ____ team seems intent on making Bud Black’s team pay for the error of their ways.
OK let me say this once again the NL West is no powerhouse in baseball and the level of play there is puerile ! The Colorado Rockies are making a mockery of the division and could well play themselves into contention and quite possibly a wildcard spot at least if not the division. They’re now taking it to the opposition the way “a pimp” takes it to one his whores who steps out of line by offering a “freebie” to a ‘John’. At present Carlos Gonzalez just might be the most explosive offensive weapon in all of baseball. Doubt my word then simply look over his stats and consider this he could be in the running for NL MVP as well the ‘Triple Crown’. A feat not completed in over forty years and last achieved by Carl Yaztremski .
They say baseball can be a fickle game but then again what team sport isn’t ? It’s not as if one man simply change the fate of a game . Oh yes one man can change the fate of the game if his teammates rally around him and that’s what all the greats of the game and any other team sport is able to do. Jordan couldn’t do it without Pippen and neither could Jeter without Mariano Rivera ! But say what you will this season of baseball has been one literally filled with surprises. The Cincinnati Reds are making the NL Central their own much to the surprise of St Louis Cardinals . In the AL East the defending World Series champions are simply sweating bullets merely to stay ahead of the voracious Tampa Bay Rays. And now suddenly the New York Yankees’ pitching seems to be all the more vulnerable than ever before . The Atlanta Braves having led the NL East for much of the season now seem to be sliding and in their effort to remain in first place < ahead of the Philadelphia Phillies have taken advantage as they look to successfully defend their NL East divisional crown. It’d be sad to see Bobby Cox bow out in his last season in such a way but the inevitable seems to be happening.
Picture gallery for your perusal.
Are there any thoughts that you have on the MLB season and what surprises if any have you thought to be noteworthy ? Which teams do you think will be in the mix this postseason and do you think that they will be there in the Fall Classic ?
