FTA -- ''Losing is a miserable experience,'' Street said before the game. ''I believe in the Padres' ownership. They want to win and they are not content with status quo.
''I blame the players for what's happened here.''


And who made the decisions to sign the players you're blaming for what's happened to the once proud (a really, really long time ago) team?  Yes, it's the players who produce the runs, throw the pitches and field the ball, but it's a bit short-sighted to blame a group of poorly selected and unmotivated players for the sins of management in not figuring out how to motivate them and ownership who signs the paychecks to produce continuous mediocrity.

As a Phillies fan, I'm in a similar place as your average Padres' fan.  I'm looking forward to the team being wholesaled the hell out throughout MLB and then settling in for a decade or so before the team overcomes the manifest errors of Ruben Amaro and a faceless ownership group who were content to try to wring too many seasons out of the team that won everything in 2008.

I don't think professional athletes should need to be motivated to win.

Good athletes find their motivation in all sorts of places, but nothing will kill that motivation faster than a toxic front office. Just take a look at how the Raiders or Knicks have fared in the last 20 years.

So the Padres won't go to the World Series this year? Well just as well, as now San Diego can turn their attention to the Chargers....

Considering the Padres don't even have a GM right now, they made out like bandits in this deal.

Amazed that teams still trade for San Diego relievers.

To be fair, there is low mileage on SD closers due to the lack of opportunities in save situations.

I think they are 10 games under .500.Mirrors.

My favorite team the Mets are in town.It seems like the Pads play .700 ball against them through the years.

Context understood.  But c'mon, if you watch a Chargers game and if they are leading at halftime, 95% of the time most people are thinking "okay, how are they going to blow this one?"
