Lowest team ERA in all of baseball. Lowest batting average against in all of baseball. Lowest team WHIP in all of baseball. More strikeouts than any other team in baseball. Given up fewer runs than any other team in baseball...34 runs fewer than the next team.
Simply put, the best f*cking pitching staff in Major League Baseball. And how many Padre pitchers on the All-Star Game roster? Not one. Nada.
NL Pitching Staff:
Josh Johnson – Marlins
Chris Carpenter – Cardinals
Brian Wilson – Giants
Adrian made the team as a reserve.
My favorite headline on MLB.com:
The NL roster features some of the greatest pitchers in the game, as the Senior Circuit hopes to best the AL for the first time since 1996 and secure home-field in the World Series.
"Some of the greatest pitchers in the game" that don't pitch on the greatest pitching staff in all of baseball.
