This week: 30, Last week: 28
Looks like pulling out a two-point win over the Kings on opening night wasn't exactly an omen. The Wolves are 0-5 since and showing their youth, with three of those losses coming by four points or fewer.
The Padres have scored 6, 9, 3 and 8 runs, for a total of 26, in winning their past four games. I'm just sayin'. The Padres are as watchable as a fourth-generation reality-dance-contest knockoff (proposed title: You Can Dance if You Want to), but do try and tune in whenever Greg Maddux pitches. You're going to miss him when he's gone.
The swinging ax caught three managers last week, but Bud Black should remain safe. Granted, he is not an offensive mind, but the GM needs to do a better job of constructing an offense.
They have found some good fortune at home and Jake Peavy is returning, but we still don't see them being a real threat. Too many things have to go right for them.
