Thenerdhater hooked me up with this St. Louis Article breaking down the Padres series.
The Cardinals are almost certain to win the Central Division title, and the Padres are the only team over .500 (by one game) in the West despite losing all six games on an Eastern trip to run their losing streak to seven.
They break down starting pitchers, closers, health issues, speed and the ballpark. All the advantages go to the Pads except the starting pitching.
They forgot to mention that the Padres have zero offense.
