In case you weren’t paying attention…

Now that Spring Training is just about over, and the Opening Day/Night/Morning/Twilight/Afternoon/Whatever roster has been pretty much set, it’s time to get serious.
Get down to brass tacks.
Figure out the bottom line.
Strike while the iron is hot.
Put on your game faces, because it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
Just kidding! It’s just a poll, not the end of the world as we know it.
And I feel fine.
This is where we gather from time to time to talk about something big in the Padres world or just the Padres or just baseball. It’s a roundtable discussion. Except, you know, no round tables. This is a Public House . . . so we’re at the bar.
A season just wouldn’t be a season without bold win predictions rooted in gut feelings and hypothetical scenarios of injury-free summer months. So we gathered behind the scenes here at Padres Public to offer-up our thoughts on 2014.
Back on September 19th, 2010 I wrote about the awesomeness that is Steve Poltz for the first time ever on RJ’s Fro. We all know that he’s the Mayor of Niceyville. He’s a killer song writer and performer. He’s a Padres fan. And he’s just an all around good dude.
In that first post, I wrote about the healing powers Steve had over the currently struggling Padres.
With the Padres mired in a 10 game losing streak, a good portion of us fans were doing whatever it took to break the team out of its funk. Bob Scanlan was going crazy on Twitter rooting the team on each and every game. Us bloggers, tried to put up a positive front to try and keep the 3 or 4 fans who don’t have a blog calm. But no one did as much as musician extraordinaire/enormous Padres fan Steve Poltz who attended the game on September 6th. That’s right, not only did his presence that night single handily help end the streak, but his mighty powers reached out and touched a couple players as well.
