Padres Shut Out in First 3 Games of Season
If Clayton Kershaw shuts you out on Opening Day, you understand. The left-handed perennial Cy Young candidate is arguably the top pitcher in the game.
But when Scott Kazmir and rookie Kenta Maeda help shut you out in the next two games, you have cause for concern.
The Padres have not been good for a long time. They haven't made the playoffs since 2006. They haven't finished over .500 since 2010. The offense has been anemic for years as well, but to not score even one run in your first 27 innings of baseball?
That's unheard of: As the tweet says, no team has EVER done that.
You have to think that a lineup with Matt Kemp and Melvin Upton Jr. and Alexei Ramirez could score a few runs, but you'd be wrong.
There's still 159 more games left, Padres fans, but it looks like Petco Park could be a lonely place in the summer of 2016.
