San Diego Padres

Power Rankings
The league batting average is .248. The Padres would have to record 96 straight hits to get there.
Here's how easily one can go cross-eyed when trying to worry too much about head-to-head matchups in doing these rankings. The Padres won two of three in San Francisco, lost two of three at home to the Diamondbacks (Arizona's first series win in nearly a month) and have now won two against a Reds team that just swept the Giants in four.
Doesn't it seem like Andrew Cashner is younger than 27? Of course, he's had enough arm issues to be 37. AGAIN: This ranking says more about the teams below than it does about the Padres.
We'll ignore the 2014 Padres here and simply say this: God bless Tony Gwynn for the life he led and allowed us to witness.
They're 13-7 in one-run games and still eight games below .500. That's pretty hard to do.
They're on pace to score 516 runs this year. The 2013 Red Sox scored their 516th run on July 23rd.
Seth Smith may be headed to an All-Star Game this season as he defies Petco Park -- where he's hitting .378/.462/.678 with nine doubles, three triples and four homers in 26 games this season.
Remember top-35 prospect Yonder Alonso? He's 27 now and hitting .193/.238/.287. He wishes he had Billy Butler's numbers.
They hadn't won more than two games in a row all season until the current four-game winning streak.
So much for a possible sleeper team. I'm bored just looking at their name.
