Sometimes things get a little fuzzy during an evening at the pub, soaking up all the hot Vedder Cup action. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (21-34) scored fewer runs than the Seattle Mariners (31-22), 16-13, last night in the finale of the 2016 Vedder Cup at Petco Park.

Wade Miley (5-2, 5.85) gave up nine runs in four and two-thirds innings on twelve hits and two walks while striking out two. The Padres scored seven runs off Miley and reliever Mike Montgomery in the fifth inning. It looked like this:

602165th

It wasn’t so painful to watch.

Colin Rea (3-2, 4.85) pitched five and a third innings, giving up six runs (five earned) on six hits and a walk with three strikeouts. But Rea did not figure in the decision after the Padres bullpen of Ryan Buchter, Brandon Maurer, and Matt Thornton combined to give up nine runs in the seventh inning. The Padres went from being in the lead by a score of 12-7 to being behind 16-12 after one inning. It looked like this:

602167th

It was painful to watch.

The Colorado Rockies (24-29) come to Petco Park for three games starting tonight at 7:40pm PDT. Drew Pomeranz (4-5, 2.48) gets the start tonight against Chris Rusin (1-3, 4.79).

    Sooooo, if the two games in Seattle, then Fowler’s tirade, then last night’s DEBACLE (blowing a 10-run lead? Seriously?) weren’t rock bottom for this “team”, I’m seriously wondering what’s next? Can we go 0-fer against the Giants for the season? Who’s going to flip off the fans from the field first? I have to admit that I was laughing during the 14 unanswered Seattle runs last night – that’s what this season has come down to – laughing at my team. I laugh because there’s no crying in baseball or so I’ve heard. I’ve been #FullLuhnow for a while now. “Building while competing” is a joke and a lie. Blow it up. Play the kids – Dickerson, Renfroe, Margot. I no longer have the patience to put up with this mess. Seriously, Padres ownership and front office, if you want to preserve your fan base and repair your reputation commit NOW to the teardown and rebuild. Waiting only adds insult to this repeated injury.

      Stay calm! The Giants are playing better than their pythagorean expectations, especially against the Padres. Nearly all of the nine games were close – five Giants wins were by one-run, two by walk-off. There were 13-9 and 8-2 losses, both with Cashner pitching.

      The first included a 5-run 8th inning off michael Kirkman who is no longer with the club, and the second featured regrettable performances by Keith Hessler (in the minors) and Rule V Perdomo.

      Bottom line: the Giants didn’t roll over the Padres, they had to work for those wins.

    I’ll add – the draft and player development for this organization over the last 10-20(?) years has been arguably an even worse catastrophe. I won’t go into all the past, because I’m at work and I don’t have the time. When I say blow it up, I’m putting my trust in a FO that supposedly has the tools in place to draft the right pieces and then develop them into major league talent. Starting with this year’s draft and international signings, they HAVE to get something right…unfortunately we won’t know if they did for a couple years at best.
