Bill Center ruins my post

In his column this morning, Buster Olney asked if the Padres were for real. He answered his question with: "Since July 27 of 2009, only St. Louis has a better record among NL teams." So, yes, it looks like the Padres are for real. Does that mean we'll get to the playoffs? Does that mean we'll get to see what the NLDS looks like? Yes, that's exactly what it means.

I decided to look up some numbers of my own. Last year, our record against the AL was 5-10. Going into today's game with the Rays, we're 8-5. Meaning we're guaranteed a winning record against America's favorite league. Records of years past you ask?

2008: 3-15. (Seriously.)
2007: 6-9.
2006: Andddd, I'm going to stop here, because as I was manually counting these records over at Yahoo Sports, I noticed that Bill Center already covered what I was leading up to: it's only going to be the second time in 13 years of interleague play that the Padres come out with a winning record. Cool. You beat me to it, Center. You want a rivalry? You just got one.

So, to answer Buster's question one more time - Yes, this team's for real. I wonder how Eckstein feels about that...

I agree, Davy. PS. Glad to see you back hitting second.

Here's a stat I'm wondering about...

How many Padres games this year have been 1-0 or 1-1 in 5th inning? This seems to be the case virtually every game...
