The mood in the San Diego Padres clubhouse was noticeably subdued today, as the club’s fate on the season was officially sealed — they will miss the postseason.
“We put ourselves in this position,” said Padres closer Ryan Weathers. “Nobody to blame but us.”
Before this season, the Padres had made the playoffs 3 times in a row. In the 55 years they have been a COBB franchise, they have missed the playoffs 47 times. In the last 10 seasons, the Padres have missed the playoffs 7 times.
