New, 15 comments

At least we're proving that we can lose to all kinds of teams.

OK. To be totally fair, the Brewers are in the middle of a hot streak. Not that streaks actually mean anything in a game like baseball, but the Brewers did come in having just swept the Cubs and the Giants and taken the tail end of their series against the Cardinals.

So let's rate, but try to not to forget that fact. The Padres are able to lose against bad teams as well as good teams as well as teams that are in the middle of a streak, whether it be a winning streak, a losing streak or a streak of games with no discernable pattern of winning or losing.

The Padres will lose to them.

Unless they're the Dodgers, at which point, the Padres turn into a sort of hellish monster bully team full of angry men.

Everybody else... Well, I'll just let you rate those guys for yourself.
