San Diego Padres
The Padres continue to bring up the rear in the NL West. The only guy in the everday lineup whos is all that scary is Wil Myers. The likes of Austin Hedges and Hunter Renfroe have power but both strike out a lot.
Don’t even get me started on Ryan Schimpf. 10 of his 21 hits have been homers but he is batting .165 and strikes out more than a third of the time.
Jarred Cosart is supposed to have a high ceiling but he keeps finding himself being dealt. Last year he was absolutely terrible after being dealt to the Padres but this season his ERA is just 2.70.
That would be encouraging except the underlying numbers do not match. He is not striking out many and a 1:1 ratio does not look like he is going to be able to keep up his luck for too long.
New York Mets
Interesting season for the Mets. They are struggling and it is the pitching that has let them down.
Led by Jay Bruce and Michael Conforto, each of whom have 11 homers the Mets are in the top ten in scoring but they are dead last in ERA.
Injuries have hurt this club but so has performance well below expectations on the mound.
The Mets had high hopes that Robert Gsellman was going to be proof of their excellent pitching depth. Instead he was getting hit hard in the rotation. They took him out for a couple of appearances but now he is back in the fold.
I am not sure that is the best way to handle him but San Diego is not a fearsome lineup so I wouldn’t write off this opportunity just yet.

Free San Diego Padres vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
Neither of these teams are all that inspiring at the moment. I want to believe that Gsellman is not terrible though and you probably won’t get better value with him this season.

We are getting to the point of the season where we know there are going to be some games we really shouldn’t get too excited about. I like NYM but you can skip this one too. Don’t forget.
