With ten more games in the books for the Padres the time has come to revisit the poll Avenging Jack Murphy put forth nearly two months ago. The predictions for the Padres over the remaining 50 games were not very promising then and when the team went 2-8 through games 113-122. The Padres turned things around during their next 10 contests and managed to go 5-5 during games 123-132. Then the Friars went 6-4 over games 133-142.
Over the last 10 games, the Padres matched that 6-4 record with the help of a 4-game winning streak that was stopped yesterday by the Pirates.
Using advanced math the Padres are 19-21 over the last 40 games played.
How in the Hell did the Padres pull that off?
Tommy Medica came seemingly out of nowhere to commit unspeakable violence on baseballs.
Norf continues to Norf.
What do you think? Was your original assessment on point or do you need to make an adjustment with the final 10 games to go?
I don’t want to toot my own horn, but I predicted a 25-25 record at the start of this experiment. If the Padres manage to match that 6-4 record, I will be confirmed a genius. If not, I’ll just blame Bud Black‘s constant starting of Alexi Amarista in the outfield over Reymond Fuentes.
