Padres in first place

The Padres are in sole possession of first place, which is a nice feeling, but we’ve got some weird numbers. We have a losing record at home (the Padres hope that new hitting coach Merv Rettenmund can better attune hitters to Petco Park). We have the lowest scoring percentage of any first place team (welcome to the NL West). We have scored the third fewest runs in the majors, ahead only of the Cubs and the hapless Royals. However, we have given up the second fewest runs, behind only the juggernaut Tigers. I don’t know what this portends, but for now, “small ball” is working.

Ah, isn't the NL West a wonderful division?
