Sons of Beaches

The San Diego Padres. Ugh. What to say about these NL West cellar dwellers?

[Insert enough white space here to fill up the article’s predetermined word count.]

Aw, man. That ain’t going to fly with our editor. Plus, we want to keep our job, so we’ll gab as best we can. Let’s see. The Padres. Yeah. Last-place team in a seriously underwhelming division. At least they got that going for them. And they play near the beach. San Diego has nice beaches. Oh, and since they suck, the Arizona Diamondbacks should pick up some easy wins when the Pads visit Chase Field for a three-game series.

Whew. Done.
