A look at the Padres 2nd half record

USA TODAY Sports

Jeez, the Padres suuuuck right now. No Padres team has ever started the second half of their season going 0-9. It's kind of hard to believe that they could still be looking for their first win after this long. With a 10 game losing streak still intact, there's a morbid part of me that wants to see them tie or beat the record of 13 losses in a row. I know that makes me a bad fan and I shouldn't be admitting it, but I will anyway.

I also have to admit there was something about that walk-off grand slam in Miami that made me think, "this is the turning point in the season". Call it a premonition or not, but I saw the future! Then, sure enough if we check the Padres' bedding and pull back the sheets we find a giant turd staring back at us.

Here's a table of the 2nd half results for all Padres teams. The 1969 team wasn't doing that bad until the half way point then they really fell upon hard times. The 1989 team really turned around their season for the better. I need to look into some of the reasons for the turnaround. I'll have to do that later.
