      I became a fan of Hamels after his comments about the Padres and how we as fans are shafted by the lack of leadership.

      • How about the whole, lifetime Padres fan, even spent time on the ESPN Padres message board in high school….literally begged the team to draft him only to find them completely disinterested

          Not getting drafted by the Padres was the best thing that ever happened to him.

    our fan base is fair weather. the same people that couldn’t tell you our starting rotation in 2008 were the biggest fans in 2010. granted, you see a lot of this in sports but it seems to be much more prevelant among the friar “faithful”
