Week in Review: Pennant Race Edition

by Kay Lynn

A six month long baseball season with 161 games played and it comes down to the final game for the Padres.

They will go to a 1 game playoff for the division with a win.  If they lose and the Braves lose than it’s a 1 game playoff for the wild card.  This team has exceeded expectations all season so I’m a proud fan no matter what happens.

I feel that the Giants are going to choke again today, then lose in SD to go 0-4 their last 4 games! ARGH!

San Diegans are convinced our team will choke! We’ve been disappointed so many times over the years by the Chargers and the Padres that our expectations are low.

Thanks for mentioning the carnival. 🙂

San Diego is known to choke, but I have a feeling they will pull this off.

I still can’t believe the 10-game losing streak.

They had the seasnon all wraped up.
