DENVER — The San Diego Padres overcame some nasty weather and back-to-back bullpen games in the Mile High City to remind everyone that they were indeed a team that could be trouble in the final two months of the regular season.

With consecutive wins to finish off the series against the Colorado Rockies, San Diego has now won five of their last six games and entered Thursday's off day ahead of a massive series against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Petco Park with a 54-55 record and 4.0 games out of the final Wild Card spot. That late push helped the Padres to become buyers at the MLB trade deadline and avoid a rumored trade that could have changed the look of the franchise completely.

Thanks to the MLB trade deadline happening in the middle of the three-game series in Colorado, there were plenty of comments about not only what was happening in the set against the Rockies, but also the potential of what could be a big push for the Padres thanks to new roster additions like reliever Scott Barlow. With all of that happening, we listened to comments while inside the San Diego clubhouse and heard some very interesting things.
