though i too have been scarce around here, i want to see who is here, and who is a padre fan. it's actually a great time in our franchise...retaining players, new ownership, decent bats. and the big one? management finally seems smart enough to build a PETCO-type team (speedy, good D, contact hitters).
we should invest 75% of our team's cap into starting pitching. we can win 1-0 all the way to the world series.
