I know this is probably not true, but does anybody think that the Dodgers would try to lose intentionally to the Padres to ruin the Giants playoff hopes? At this point the Dodgers are basically out of the playoff picture, and if they aren't going to make the playoffs, I am sure they don't want their rivals to make it either. The Division is in our grasps and all of sudden the Padres have got out of their funk and have taken the first two games in the series with the Dodgers. It is just a thought. It has been a wild ride so far and I am looking forward to seeing how the season unfolds. The next series coming up against the Padres is huge. That four game series could end up being the deciding factor for the division. I am looking forward to finally seeing some meaningful baseball in September and just hope the Giants can deliver a long awaited playoff appearance in SF. This Dodger, Padre series has been a rare occasion for me as a Giants fan. It has been the only time I have rooted for the Dodgers all year. In a way it kinda hurts but sometimes you even need some help from your enemies. So lets go Dodgers and Giants!
