Yonder goes Yonder Alonso, who is reportedly out for the season after suffering a damaged tendon in his forearm.
Surgery is possible for the San Diego Padres’ first baseman reports Jeff Sanders of UT San Diego, but before it gets to that point Alonso will seek a second opinion.
Yup, it pretty much sucks to be a San Diego Padre this year. Or a Padres fan. Or a person in any way connected to the Padres.
People in the greater San Diego area who don’t even care about the Padres can probably sense the dark cloud hovering over their heads all the time.
No, that’s not an alien spacecraft slowly descending. It’s not some bizarre El Nino-related atmospheric phenomenon. It’s not the moon crashing down like in a cheesy old sci-fi movie.
It’s just the Padres sucking all the light out of the world with their misery.
Alonso was hitting .240 with 7 HR and 27 RBI for the Padres. By their standards, that’s a slugging season for the ages.
Right about now, the Padres are just wishing the season would get over with. Sorry Padres but there is a month and a half left to go still.
It feels like one of those bad dreams, doesn’t it? The ones where everything goes slow motion, like you’re running in quicksand. Except this isn’t a dream. This is real. This is your season.
This is what you are.
