A Smacchat Formal Apology

At this time we would like to issue a formal apology to all of those who have been offended by our consistent refusal to take the San Diego seriously throughout the course of the year despite the fact that they have led the division with the best overall winning percentage in the NL from almost start to finish. We had been patiently waiting for the Priest to pull their typical late season fade as they have done in previous years, and put off the recanting our predictions until the latest possible hour. Well, with 42 games left to go and six game in the division it is about time we manned up and admitted up and admitted that we haven’t been on the right side of this trade all season. Our only defense is that we have not been the only ones, which really seems strange as San Diego has a winning percentage that is 3rd in all of baseball, just two games away from the best. Coming from a statistical standpoint it may still be a mystery how a club that sits in the bottom quintile in the four major team categories can win nine of ten during the heat of August and even hotter pennant races may seem strange but that would take us right back down the same road. So rather than trying to slow the train down we’re just going to take our seat and wait for the food and beverage cart. I heard they were serving crow on this trip. Can the Padres keep the momentum going into the playoffs? Do they have a shot to win a series or two? Let us know here and in any of the quick links.
