Two teams heading in different directions for sure.
The Giants are rolling and looking like they are going to make their even year trip to the World Series while the Padres continue to retool for the future – they just dealt Drew Pomeranz to the Red Sox.
Johnny Cueto gets the start and the Giants have to be hoping he will be sharper than he was in SD for the All-Star game.
San Francisco Giants
The Giants enter the second half with the best record in baseball.
Pretty impressive given that players including Hunter Pence and Joe Panik have missed significant time.
The Giants have been winning by utilizing their entire roster and hope their return will only make them that much stronger.
Buster Posey seems to be getting better as the season progresses and they are very happy with the development of Brandon Belt.
Cueto started the All-Star game and got hit pretty hard. Still that does not diminish what he has accomplished this season, he is 13-1.
Three of those wins have come against San Diego and his stats against the Padres are simply amazing, three starts, three complete games, two shutouts, 1ER in 27 IP with a K/B ratio of 25/3.
I wonder if anyone has been that dominate against another team in a season before.
San Diego Padres
It seems like the Padres are going to be one of those teams that is just never settled.
They have definitely given up on this season and rightly so but when are they going to give themselves a chance to mature and compete.
The moving out of Pomeranz was probably just the first step. This team needs to figure out how it is going to compete and plan accordingly.
The offense and pitching have both been mediocre – though they have more power than they have had in some time.
There is not much of a book on Luis Perdomo yet. He has pitched as a starter and in relief this season and it appears they are now giving him a chance to prove he belongs in the rotation.
He has made 6 legit starts with two of them being terrible and the other four being pretty good.
His only experience against the Giants has been out of the pen.

Free San Francisco Giants vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
Even though Cueto was on full display and far from his best in the All-Star game there is no way that San Francisco is not a heavy favourite coming into this one.
The outcome of the first game of the series on Friday night is likely to have any influence.
San Diego has to be a little bit uncomfortable given how Cueto has dominate them this season. They only have 13 hits against him over those three games.
Will some time off refocused them or are they already beaten?
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: San Francisco RL
Despite those great pitching performance and the wins the Giants only outscored the Padres 4-1 in those starts made by Cueto.
I think this time they can be a little more definitive in their victory.
