The difference in run differential between when I posted on it last week and now is SHOCKING. Before the end of the Giants game today, the Padres were at +124 versus the Giants at +66. To think, that they were less than 5 runs apart last week is remarkable. To make up that much ground (6.5 games presently) on August 19th would be incredible. They might just have to start hoping some of the other Wild Card contenders falter, but I don’t think they will. They’re in big trouble and their current run differential doesn’t bode well.
