The O’Malley family has re-settled in San Diego, pouring their finances and baseball savvy into the perennial basement dweller Padres. While the DBags and Dodgers have opted for the glitterati and sparkle of the “superstar” front office, I am more enthralled by the past success of the O’Malleys and their current moves.
After winning their first and only series of the season, the Giants are flying over parched AZ and onto sunny San Diego. The Padres were smart to schedule their one and only weekend homestand v. the Giants on a weekend so close to San Francisco’s own opening day. That means less Giants fans descending upon AT&T South from the Bay Area, excepting those of us who already live down this way and refuse to go to Chavez Latrine.
Let’s see how our boys fare against the new Poodres, who dropped 2 against the Dodgers.
