It's officially: I have had enough of losing to St. Louis.

We need to sweep these guys this weekend, and send a message that the Padres are on the way back up. You have to beat the best in order to become the best, and the Pads have the talent on today's squad to do it.

Kyle Blanks is quickly becoming a Rookie of the Year candidate, one worthy of competing with Mr. Pujols.

Year after year, the Cardinals have plowed the Padres like a field of onions, and St. Louis fans probably look upon each series as an all you can eat buffet.


The beatings stop tonight...hopefully.

This evening's game features the Cardinals Joel Pinero (11-9) matching up against the Padres Tim Stauffer (1-5). If Stauffer is ever going to help the Padres, tonight would be a good place to start.

Lets get a win, Padres! I cant take more losses to the redbirds.
