With so many teams still in contention this year, virtually every game has some sort of playoff implication. Tonight's Padres and Astros game is not one of them.
The two teams have no playoff hopes, and yet are facing off on this Monday night at PetCo Park. The Padres, who have had trouble drawing all season, will no doubt be playing in front of many empty seats for this game between two teams fighting for position in the draft.
But is there a reason to go out to the park and see tonight's game?
Sure there is. In fact, there are several.
