Back to baseball! Here's the part of the season where everyone is figuring the Padres to fade. Will they fade? Heck I dunno. Mike Adams is hurt. I know Mat Latos is hurt real bad. David Eckstein is back, but who knows if his recent injury was like Rookie of the Year and now his magic injury is healed and he'll go back to being scrappy, umeasurably good instead of like, measurably good.
I will admit, seeing us flop into the break was disheartening, so I'm hoping for a more heartening return. My prediction: Padres: like a billion, Diamondbacks: 3.
