Two Padres teams that have won 50 games at home

Using the most unflattering picture I can find of Hoyer - Jonathan Daniel

Cubs GM Jed Hoyer told Darren Smith (MP3) that the Cubs look at home field advantage a lot.

"It's kind of unusual. Somebody will probably correct me when I say this, but the two teams that have struggled the most historically at home are the Padres and the Cubs. Which is interesting. I think the Padres have only won 50 games at home twice in the history of the franchise and the Cubs have only done it 3 times since 1945. Really for a team with a unique ballpark to only win 50 games at home times 3 times, it's something look at."

I decided to check Hoyer's work and sure enough the Padres have only won 50 or more games at home twice. While I was listening to Jed in the car yesterday I quizzed myself. I knew 1998 would be at the top of the list and guessed the second team with 50 wins would be either 1984, 1996 or 2007. Certainly not the 1978 team. They must have played like sh_t on the road.

I didn't check Hoyer's Cubs' statistic because I don't care. Suck it Cubs!
