Of 37 left, how many games to the Padres need to win?

Put another way, which challenge do you think is greater? Winning the NL West or winning the wild-card? Even if the Padres can go 21-16, it's doubtful that the Dodgers, overall, will post 18-19.  To me, the wild card is more achievable. Especially if San Diego can manage a 4-2 mark in remaining games against Cincinnati. At that point, Philadelphia becomes the primary concern, but 25 of their 38 games are on the road. (Of course, the Padres have 23, while Los Angeles has 21.) The Reds have 22.

Either way, best of luck the rest of the way,
