Unless I can't count...

Counting from June 1 forward, the padres are a .500 team (16-16).

From June 15 forward, they are 12-7.

What does this mean? The teams that they have been beating are not bad teams... Dodgers, Mariners, Giants.

Can they make it back to .500 for the season?

There seems to be an interesting correlation to Beck's game log as well.

You've got to wonder what the standings would be like if they'd had a closer all season long.



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

Rondell White is much of that as well. It's really a perfectly acceptable team, just can't stay healthy or consistent.

The only problem with making it back to .500 is someone's gotta fall down. Colorado might (since Chacon hit the DL), and I'm expecting the Dodgers to begin their annual slide to 5-games-of-.500 any day now, but the D-Backs are on a roll, and the Giants are still good. They've gotta beat people up outside their division to have a shot at getting to .500. (Well, that and they can stay healthy.) Dark's right, since a lot of their pitching is young, consistency will be an issue for them - but there's definately a chance.

yeah, they need Colorado to take more road trips and beat on some more teams, preferably not us this week :-)

To go .500 for the season, the Padres would have to play 25 over .500 the rest of the way. For a team that ended the weekend with still the 3rd worst record in baseball (only Detroit and Tampa were worse), that is a large mountain to attempt to climb. Perhaps the Padres can play .500 and avoid losing 100 games, but they'd have to play lights out for 3 months to finish at .500 overall.



If Vince would just hire Dick Dastardly and Muttly and tell them to Catch the Pigeon, it would draw at least an 8 rating.

The Padres seem to have the Dodgers' number. I haven't seen any other team dominate Los Angeles as much as San Diego has. That...seems unusual to me.

As I told one of my buddies before the season started, if the Padres can manage to not lose 100 games, I will be a happy guy.
They are playing much better than they did in May. The bullpen is a little more stable. The boys are starting ot hit. What will be interesting is to see what happens when Nevin comes back. He says he is willing to be a back-up, spelling Klesko, Burroughs, White and Nady, but saying it is one thing. Doing it is something completely different.

Good, maybe they win at least one game while I'm out there.

I saw them get a huge win today. Didn't exactly make my day though.

Pardon me while I ROFL. First of all, will Barry even come back next season for the $6 or 8 million another team might offer?
