Mookie Betts makes a spectacular diving catch on Tommy Pham's line drive for the final out of the game, sealing the Dodgers' 2-0 win
Look, I know when you realize that this is now my second Padres post in a row, the typical reaction should be a rolling of the eyes and a sigh. I would also accept "typical" muttered underneath your breath. After all, it's all I heard during my childhood! But no matter how much pity you feel for me and my plight, I would like to note for the record that before these past two posts, the last time I had spoken (wrote?) about a Padres player was (checks brain...) Tommy Pham... and how awesome he was going to be. Well, if you just muttered "typical" again, right you are mom reader. So as Tommy Pham's playing time both on the Padres and your roster enters into a flux state, let's close the loop and analyze why exactly everything I had said about has not come true but how it still could. Maybe.
