San Diego Padres
San Diego has stumbled to start the second half and as this is being written find themselves tied with Colorado at the bottom of the NL West. A good week could fix this but more likely they are resigned to their fate and look to sell. There is a lot of power on this team and that makes them dangerous, when they make contact. Fernando Tatis Jr. is a delight and quickly proving to be worth watching San Diego for.
Joey Lucchesi has shown improvement in his second season in the bigs. While it seems every pitcher in the league has seen their homer rate explode he has actually brought it down. He has not been good on the road though. That makes sense given his home park and the fact that he is still so young in his career. You have to pick and choose your spots with him.
In the second half the Cubs have been taking care of business, beating teams in the division to help create some breathing room. Now they are dipping into the NL West, hosting San Diego before heading to San Francisco. They are dealing with injuries, especially to the pitching staff, as well as catcher Willson Contreras, an important part of their lineup. The depth they have is impressive.
It seems with each season the Cubs are getting less from Jose Quintana. Its not that he has been bad but I was expecting him to thrive more in the National League, and now it is has been a few years. His K rate is down this season and his hit rate is up. If we wasn’t playing for a good offensive team his numbers would probably be worse. The Chicago bullpen is OK but they are dealing with injuries.
