Arizona Diamondbacks vs San Diego Padres Prediction

The San Diego Padres are going to get the benefit of the doubt because they're at home and Matt Waldron has been much better than Ryne Nelson this season. However, as I said yesterday, I have no use for the Padres and their constant underachieving. And I'm sorry, one win doesn't change much. The Padres aren't good despite their talent level, and right when they've sucked you back in they let you down. Not falling for it. Give me the Arizona Diamondbacks as a fade of the Padres more than anything else.
