What a month it has been for the Padres so far... they have won 11 of 12 games so far this month and moved into a tie for first place in the west.

April - 9 wins, 15 losses.
May - 11 wins, 1 loss.

Overall - 20 - 16.

Yeah, but half of of those wins have come against the Iowa Cubs. That hardly counts.

They also have the worst cleanup hitter in baseball. Piazza, Bowen, Bard, etc. They just rotate a catcher in that spot.

The good news for them is they haven't started hitting yet. When the .230 Khalil Greene has been your best hitter, things are shaky.

Two straight years the Padres have had a very good month of May. Since the division might be somewhat better this season than last though, the Padres might actually need to have another good month during the course of the season.

The Padres won't be able to get away with one good month. The key is they will have to prove they can win inside the division. Their horrible stretch in April came against Colorado, Arizona and the stinking Dodgers. That won't do.

Although it is still early, the three-game set starting against the Snakes tonight is pretty big, and the next homestand is absolutely HUGE, with Atlanta, Saint Louis and Colorado coming to PETCO Park.

The difference this season is obvious. The defense is superb. The starting pitching has been excellent, especially Chan Ho Park and Chris Young. The bullpen is doing well. Their baserunning is much improved. This is a better team, and... no Nevin or Klesko.

FWIW, it can be a lot of fun to root for a team that's rebuilding. You get to see young players make rookie mistakes interspersed with tremendous athletic plays. You get to interact more with the true fans. And you get the good seats.
