OK. So the Padres came back last night. For a while there, amidst the Webb-Weaver duel in LA, the tantalizing possibility of climbing to within 4 games of the Padres floated out there like a chocolate dog in the Land of Chocolate.

Alas, it was not to be. The Padres won. Even though Brandon Webb won a 2-0 game over the Dodgers, thanks to Chad Tracy's 25th home run of the year (Goal # 5 accomplished; Goal # 6 accomplished with just 2-3 more hits in his last 20 or so ABs), just one more Diamondbacks loss or Padres victory would finally put an end to the Diamondbacks playoff "hopes." (And I use that term very loosely.)

The most frustrating thing for me about this past week or so is that the Diamondbacks really needed to do this, oh, in June. Winning 7 of 9? That might've triggered some fan interest. As it was, apathy ruled.

Oh, and in the category of "Where The Heck Is That Coming From?," this from Will Carroll (registration required):

"Brandon Lyon appears headed for Tommy John surgery, something he probably wishes he'd had two years ago…"

I have never heard this before. Anyone care to shed some light on this?
