A little padre optimism

Before I throw in the towel on the padres, and say they are a horrible hitting team (currently they are, no denying that), it doesn't mean that they are going to remain in this constant pattern for the entire season. 

I'll start with Ludwick: His average is creeping up; but one thing that numbers do not show is how many balls he has hit solid, without getting a hit. We saw it and acknowledged it during the Reds series. He has the capability of being a .280 hitter with 15-20 HR's. I'm still a fan of Ludwick, and I look forward to seeing what he is going to do for the rest of the season. 

O-dog is on par to what he normally does throughout his career. .270-.280 hitter that provides a solid glove and some SBs.

Pitching wise, we are solid. Harang is having a great year so far. Moseley is phenomenal, and our bullpen is lights out.  We are on the top of the charts in a majority of the pitching categories, (except for wins, CG,SHO,).

We have the capability to be a better hitting team than we are displaying, and with the pitching to back it up, anything can happen this year. 

The Padres are 2 games behind the giants for second place, and 5 games behind the streakiest team in baseball. They win a million then lose 2 million.
