In 1998 the Padres had 90 wins at this point in the season.

USA TODAY Sports

At this point in the season back in 1998 the Padres had just claimed their 90th win.  That's better than any other team today.  The Braves are currently the best team in baseball and they only have 85 wins.  Think about that.

Of course the 1998 Yankees had 100 wins after 139 games, so I guess it's all relative.  Plus the 1998 Padres really sh_t the bed in September of that year.  They went 8-15 after their 90th win. Everyone was juiced up back then too, good thing we don't have that problem in today's game.

I don't really have a reason to bring any of this up, except to say the 2013 Padres suck nuts.
