Ohmygod stop complaining

We are still second in the West with HALF of the team we started with this season. The Diamondbacks saw a flaw in our roster due to all the injuries and they managed the roster they had in such a way that enabled them to win. Stop sulking; it’s bullshit how everyone’s like “Good job DBacks” then turns around and complains about how we lost. Pick a damn sode. Either you’re genuinely happy for them and will support them or you won’t. Shit I’m disappointed we lost too but with the roster we have, even if we made playoffs, there is NO WAY we would make it very far because our offense is shit. There is still next season. The Diamondbacks have a better shot at the World Series than anyone else in the West! They’re a quality team and have some amazing players and as classy fans and decent human beings, let’s not be so damned two-faced about the situation.

Erlin solid, but bats stay quiet in Spring Opener

Erlin solid, but bats stay quiet in spring opener

       To most successful and winning teams, spring training is about practice, getting at bats, or just getting ready for Opening Day in April. But to the Padres, Spring Training means everything. Especially because the Padres are welcoming a good amount of new players to the clubhouse. San Diego, who has 16 new faces in their bullpen. Robbie Erlin, who was given the ball against the Mariners this afternoon, is trying to fight for a spot in the back of the Padres rotation. But as he knows, he has a long road ahead of him. With the return of Brandon Maurer back and healthy, he is really going to have to show Greene what he can do. Erlin, who said he is willing to sit in the bullpen and wait for his turn on the hill.  With a 7-0 loss today in the beginning of the Cactus League, the Padres look to Philip Humber to take on the Mariners for the second time. Humber, who is in camp on a Major League deal as a non-roster invitee. He was able to pitch in Korea last season, before being released last July. Humber does have some history with Seattle. After he tossed a perfect game at Safeco Field in 2012. Andy Greene hoping that the Padres can throw a couple of runs on the board during tomorrow’s matinee in Arizona.
