Sometimes things can get a little fuzzy after an afternoon at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (40-54) scored fewer runs than the Colorado Rockies (56-41) yesterday, 18-4, in the finale of three games at Coors Field.

Clayton Richard (5-10, 5.35) allowed eleven runs (ten earned) on fourteen hits and a walk while striking out three in three and two-thirds innings. Kevin Quackenbush gave up six runs in his two and a third innings of relief. Nolan Arenado went 5-for-6 with three home runs, four runs scored, and seven RBI. Trevor Story and Charlie Blackmon each had a home run of their own.

In other words…

And Padres fans were like…

…for pretty much the entire game.

Saturday was the annual Padres FanFest. Originally, I was going to write a recap of my day. But I was so bored there I didn’t even bother taking any notes and only took a couple of photos. I’ll let Ryan sum up the rest of my feelings on the last few FanFests:

Now that we have that (not unexpected) disappointment out of the way, I ended up going to Bub’s at the Ballpark with your good friend and mine, Nathan Zack. The plan was to meet Dave and Laura Perek there, which has become sort of an annual tradition for Nathan whenever he’s in town. I had never met Dave or Laura before, even though we’ve followed each other on Twitter for years, so I was excited to finally get to do that.

Over the course of the two hours we spent at Bub’s, I was introduced to a little game the three of them play amongst themselves where they make predictions about the upcoming season. I was intrigued, to say the least, so I joined them for this year’s edition.

What follows is all of our selections for this game. We don’t know how it’s going to end yet, but I’m pretty sure I nailed every category. I’ve put my selections in bold.

There are no stakes. There is no prize. It’s all for fun.

So, relax, let’s have some fun out here! This game’s fun, OK?

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy during an afternoon at the pub, watching the Local NFL Team’s home opener (because, if the crowd photos are any sort of accurate, you weren’t at Qualcomm Stadium). Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were were drinking.

The Padres (62-87) scored fewer runs than the Colorado Rockies (72-77) yesterday, 6-3, in the final game of 2016 at Coors Field.

Jarred Cosart (0-4, 5.63) couldn’t get past the fourth inning, giving up five runs on five hits and four walks in three and two-thirds innings with four strikeouts. In the fourth inning, Mark Reynolds hit a two-run home run, a bases-loaded walk of DJ LeMahieu scored Tony Wolters, and a single by Carlos Gonzalez drove in Chad Bettis and Charlie Blackmon. Wolters’ single in the fifth inning scored Gerardo Parra.

Bettis (13-7, 4.79) surrendered three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out three in five and a third innings. Adam Rosales put the Padres on the board in the second inning with a solo home run. A Wil Myers double in the sixth inning scored Travis Jankowski and Jon Jay.
