The Padres get to face Ubaldo Jimenez tonight. He's like supposed to be good and all, but I'm at a 9 on the Fan Confidence Scale right now.
I'll tell you why I like the team so much:
They're winning according to defense and an effective bullpen and I don't think there are any REALLY good metrics to properly measure defense and relief pitching the same way that offense and starting pitching might be measured. I know all about zone ratings and all that jazz, and I know that the Padres lead in those sorts of stats, but I think the Padres defense is STILL being underestimated.
So there's that.
Whether or not they can hit Ubaldo Jimenez? Who knows. I just know that we gonna win.
