Some of you may be surprised to see a Rockies NL West rival ranked this highly, and to be honest with you I am a bit surprised myself. I can assure you that I am not really starting to like the Padres and I still do think of them as the team that wore the bodily waste colored uniforms at one time. This is more of a case of several other teams that have pissed me off this season in one fashion or another. In time, the Padres will retake their place among the lowest of the low. However, for now they can take heart that I only want them to lose 90 games instead of 110 games. Besides making fun of the Padres is a lot like picking on the slow kid in school, it's too easy to do and you never feel good about yourself afterwards. For now, let's just check out some Padres team trivia.
