Football isn't doing anything, for one of the few times during the year. Basketball is over (even though the NBA Draft is tonight, not a ton of people care about that). Hockey is over.
Now is the time of the year when baseball gets a big spotlight on it, when they really get to grow their audience. And instead of running with it, once again the Padres are doing everything they can to prove to San Diego that their brand of baseball is boring and unsuccessful. How terrible.
