May 16, 2010: Padres Drop Series to Mets
The Mets won a key series against the Padres thanks to Carlos Delgado's heroics. San Diego took an early 2-0 lead on a Victor Martinez home run. This was not to last, however, as Carlos Delgado drove a 3-run home run in the fourth. It was especially disappointing for Francisco Jaramillo after he carried a perfect game into the eighth the last time he faced New York. Jaramillo was still solid, finishing with 7 innings and only 3 earned runs. His opponent, Justin Verlander, bested him this time with a complete game. He also only allowed five hits- all of which came from the top three hitters in the San Diego lineup. The Friars remain in a tie with the Giants for first in the division, but their recent performances have given some hope of an eventual takeover.

Mid-May 2010 Update: Padres in Unexpected Tie with Giants
Last season, the Friars won 35 more games than the Giants. This year, the Giants have arguably out-played them in 2010. San Francisco has almost 60 more runs than the Padres and is slightly above them in batting average. Most importantly, the Giants seemingly solved a major pitching issue. Curt Schilling has rebounded quite well from a rough season in 2009, and the remainder of the rotation has been solid as well. This is especially unexpected as they traded Tim Lincecum last year, which was a move that was heavily criticized throughout last season. As for the Padres, it is becoming clear that their offense is too HR-dependent. They have hit nearly 60 more home runs than the Giants despite the 60-run gap, meaning the Giants have been more effective at getting men on base. Putting runners on has been a significant issue for San Diego the last three seasons, so the solution may be to acquire a better contact hitter. The Padres have been pretty quiet on the transaction front since the 2008-09 offseason, so they may be primed to make a big splash before the deadline. Even still, concerns that they may fall off completely seem to be unfounded at this point.

May 30, 2010: Padres Close Great Month with Another Win over Colorado
In 14 matchups between the two teams, Colorado has failed to win a single game. Even worse for them, most of the games were complete blowouts. That was also the case this time, although Colorado made it a save situation in the ninth. Heading into the ninth, the Padres led 7-1. They jumped out to an early 3-0 lead on hits from Jack Cust, Khalil Greene, and Kevin Kouzmanoff. Overall though, Adrian Gonzalez was the star as he hit two home runs and scored aN additional run. In his final start of the month, Francisco Jaramillo shined. He did not notch a quality start after he was left in for too long, but he still finished with a strong line- 4 ER through 8.1 innings. After the game, the rookie hurler was named rookie of the month for the National League. With the win, San Diego finished a month that saw them erase an unexpected deficit and reclaim their stranglehold on the division.

May 2010 Update: Friars Turn Deficit Into Commanding Lead
After some doubts, the Padres re-established themselves as the best team in the National League. In the entire month of May, the team lost just 6 games. Their run differential was superb at +63, much better than April's +25. There were several storylines, but the best may have been their rookies. Francisco Jaramillo and Jason Blackburn have now each won rookies of the month. The race for rookie of the year could be contained in San Diego, and betting odds slightly favor Jaramillo at the moment. Another storyline may be the Cy Young Race, which right now includes Kelvim Escobar, John Lackey, Zach Duke, and Jake Peavy. Greg Maddux may also be on the outside looking in if voters favor win-loss record as he is currently 7-0. Escobar has leaped out to replace Peavy as the betting favorite, but the Padres will face the second-place Giants many times in the rest of the season, which will give them a chance to knock Escobar off the leader spot. Lastly, the home-run race seems to be between Jack Cust, Kevin Kouzmanoff, Alex Rodriguez, and Victor Martinez. While A-Rod is the favorite, Jack Cust has built an impressive track record in San Diego, which may propel him to the top of the leaderboard. As the division lead continues to widen, Padres fans may be more interested in the HR race, especially with the surging Padres facing the struggling Giants many times in the next few months.
