They lost one game to the Dodgers despite taking 10 walks (plus a hit batter). They've lost while striking out 18 times, also against the Dodgers. They've bunted into a (disputed) triple play. They've played abysmal defense, committing a major-league high 22 errors. Their pitchers lead the majors with 86 walks (through Wednesday), and it's not even close -- the Dodgers and Blue Jays, next closest, check in with 72.
Through 19 games, these Padres rival those 1974 Padres (6-13) for bad starts. That was the club that provoked Kroc, and one of the more outrageous moments in a history stocked with them.
