    Just goes to show what massive fvck-ups the baseball club in this town is:
    They can't even suck properly!!

    (the '13 outfit was supposed to be truly bad...now 68 games in, they seem to have learned baseball, & only trail in their division by 3 games!)

    God I hope they keep the streak running and sweep the Giants. I hate that team more than I do the Raiders, and that says a lot.

    The injuries are starting to finally take a toll on the team. We can't get Gyorko and Evereth back soon enough.

    I've been a Padres fan since 1969, but I've finally given up on the team as I don't think management is serious about taking the steps that are needed to field a competitive team.

    I started watching the Dodgers when they brought Yasiel Puig up from the minors and have decided the Dodgers are my team.

    This management and ownership team is still relatively young. Giving up on them now would be like giving up on Mike McCoy and Tom Telesco already.

    I also don't get pointing at the Dodgers bringing up Puig as some kind of contrast. The Padres don't have a Puig in their system.

    Edit: And you've been a Padres fan since 1969 and you choose the Dodgers to jump ship to? Would you become a Raiders fan if you ever give up on the Chargers?

    I've also never understood the concept of dumping a favorite team because of the current management system's way of running things.

    I mean, I get it on a very basic level, but if you really think about it, if you choose another favorite team because you prefer their style of running the team you're not so much being a fan of the team as you are a fan of the ownership group.

    In other words, you're not becoming a Dodgers fan, you're becoming a Magic Johnson group/Ned Coletti fan. What happens if Magic sells or Ned is replaced? Do you find another team if you don't like the way the new group runs things?
