Well the Cubs came and went and took the series from my boys even though our Padres won the first one. Now they go on the road to play the Mets! Time to regroup. [/code]

I'm seeing a marquee match-up tonight, Blake Snell vs. Jacob deGrom. I'll be watching since your team and mine just switched time zones. Smile

We were victims of deGrom again. Confused

El Nino with another grand slam! My boys escaped New York without being swept and they are looking for a little Coors Field comfort starting a series in Colorado tonight.

I know I have been AWOL since earlier this week, and in between the Rockies swept my boys Surprised but they are now at home and have won 2 straight! Thursday night they had Re-Opening Day at Petco Park with a thrilling walk-off win. Last night, Chris Paddack got the ball and they beat the Reds again.

We have decided we are finally about ready to go back to the ballpark. So, that game is going to come this week ahead, against the Dodgers! Smile

And what game would that be? We will be there on Tuesday night for sure, maybe Wednesday too.

We have not decided for sure, but probably Tuesday. Will let you know. Would be good to have some good natured trash talking. Twisted Evil

Padres completed a 4 game sweep of the Reds today - first 4 game sweep for our guys in 10 years! I could not believe it had been that long but thinking back, we had some lean times in those 10 years.

Dodgers come in to Petco Park tomorrow now!

Well how did you like that one, Linda? Laughing

To be serious I thought the Padres showed up amped to play and did better all around as the Dodgers looked flat in many ways. This means my boys have now won 5 of the 8 games played head to head this year. They are still 3 games back of the Dodgers, though, 4 1/2 games out of first place.

Well, not much, but I encountered a glaring problem at Petco Park that put me in a "foul" mood before the game even started. Don't want to elaborate on that right now, but it was not a good evening from the time of my arrival downtown.

Tonight, my butt will be planted on the couch at home.
