Y'all have probably already considered this but for those who hadn't noticed...
Season to date record (as of 1:30pm on August 21, 2010):
Season to date record (as of 1:30pm on August 21, 2010) excluding games played against one another:
- Padres: 64-46
- Giants : 67-45
I haven't looked into strength of schedule metrics or anything else but I thought this was telling. This means that if we can beat the Padres down the stretch then... we win the division. It's just. that. easy.
