"and This Season Is Ovah!"--
--In the words of the rather annoying White Sox commentator Hawk Harrelson. Unfortunately, the Padres could not beat Jonathan Sanchez and give us a fourth straight year of extra regular season baseball, and Game 163.
History will not be made this year, at least in the form of the first year ever with a three way tie solved by tiebreakers, and now the San Francisco Giants are NL West Champions, the Atlanta Braves the National League Wild Card, and the San Diego Padres are a team with perhaps one of the biggest lost opportunities this season, but can still look back on a season that far exceeded the very low expectations set for them in April.
In the meantime you can see how the playoff matchups are in the content block to the side.
