Every day I get these lovely tweets from my adoring public, reminding me that back in February I labeled the Padres the team to beat in the National League West.
And here late in July they look pretty beaten, so I say to all that I missed that one. I overrated their lineup, could not foresee the collective mediocrity of their rotation, did not heed enough the warnings of their defense.
So now on the eve of the trade deadline, I admit I was wrong in proclaiming the Padres the team to beat.
Obviously, the Giants are.
That’s right, oh haters of all things...
