At 9:40 pm, our selection is on the San Diego Padres over the Seattle Mariners.  Despite everything that's going on right now, it's a good time to be a member of the Padres (or a fan).  San Diego's young baseball team is looking like the 2nd best club in the National League right now and what seemed like an impossible feat only a few weeks ago -- catching the Dodgers -- is now within grasp.  While L.A. has to go into Denver (always dicey) this weekend, the Padres get three games vs. Seattle.  Also, San Diego will be designated as the "road" team in this series, but each game will be played in San Diego, as Seattle's air quality was deemed unsafe, due to the fires, so the games were moved away from Seattle.  Starting things out on the mound will be RHP Chris Paddack.  Paddack was looking like a sure-fire ace heading into this season after a 2019 in which he won nine games with a 3.33 ERA, but he's struggled a bit so far.  But while his ERA is high at 4.74 (in 10 starts), Paddack's walk rate has actually improved (to a low 1.6 free passes per nine innings) and his K:BB ratio has increased as a result (5.78).  A start vs. Seattle should be just what Paddack needs.  The Pads are 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.  Take San Diego.  As always, good luck...Al McMordie.
