“But I Had Faith And I Had Hope…”
….”thankfully the Padres choked.”
That was the line in Ashkon’s brilliant Don’t Stop Believing video that made me first take notice. I have a vague recollection of the Padres choking so it must have happened. I dunno, 2010 was a long time ago.
Anyway, the Padres are in town and this time they don’t need to choke. They just need to keep on suckin’. This is a moment for Smarge to rise tall and meet the expectations of that contract or fall ant-small and turn in one of his confounding efforts. Kruk will boil it down to one thing: will Smarge use that breaking ball sensi Raggs methodically taught him throughout the year or will he try to blow every Padre away with gas?
How about we watch this one more time just to get some of the old juices flowing….
