In case you haven’t voted in the poll, we need to come up with a song from the late-’70s or early-’80s that the Padres can adopt as their theme. Remember how the White Sox used Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’ ” en route to a World Championship in 2005? Right now, Aerosmith and Boston are leading the charge, but don’t forget REO Speedwagon (yeah, right; I’ve been trying for years).
In other news, Wednesday night’s starter for Colorado, Ubaldo Jimenez, won his first big-league ballgame on July 29 against the Dodgers, pushing him past the Expos’ Ubaldo Heredia as MLB’s all-time wins leader for pitchers named “Ubaldo.”
Way to go, big guy; way to go…
