I heard "Bark Park" a while back. I like the sound of it more than "The Litter Box".
And, I would be surprised if any fans who really follow baseball closely were not hyped up on the Padres. Ever since the Giles trade, many baseball experts have been proclaiming that they are one of the best up and coming teams.
I'm certainly going to be keeping an eye on them. Lots of nice sleepers to draft on that team.
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
SD has put themselves in a better spot. Alot still rides on their young player's. They still could be a year away imo. It depends on the progress of guys like Eaton, Peavy, Burroughs. They will be pesky, maybe even contend, but they still are young, especially in sp. They only won 64, 100 won the west. even if they improve a whopping 20 games, they still are only at 84 wins.
