Back home to the relatively friendly confines of Chase Field tonight - we're only 21-25 at home, compared to a woeful 13-33 on the road - for a series against the Mets. It's kinda sad when my first thought for the day is "Must find a Millagraph for tonight's defeat." Yes, I'm going to keep posting them until the team wins a freakin' game, which they haven't done in over a week now - it was the Saturday before the All-Star break, I think. And the Tankapalooza standings will continue until a the team produces a meaningful winning streak. And, no, "one" and "two" do not count.

Let's hope for better pitching, at least. While writing up the NL West for the SB Nation power rankings, I found that the 26 runs we conceded over the series in San Diego appears to be the most the Padres have ever scored in a three-game series at Petco. We've been outscored 84-52 in the 13 games since Gibson took over, so it's clear where the blame lies. Our ERA is now 5.40, worst in the league by more than one-third of a run. Does anyone know why we fired the manager, fired the GM...and Mel Stottlemyre still has a job?

Will be dotting in and out. I do have to write the recap, but that doesn't mean I have to like it.
