Giants @ Padres, 7/26

Samardzija (7-8, 4.08 ERA) vs. Lucchesi (7-5, 4.27 ERA)

Los Angeles Dofgers v San Diego Padres

The trade deadline is about 4.5 days away, so here we are with the Giants needing to win this series to determine just exactly how they’ll proceed. Buy or sell? Buy and sell? Sell-buy-sell (three-way trade)? Buy? Sell? Stand pat?

All things are possible and yet when it comes to the Giants and the Padres, it doesn’t feel like there’s a lot of variation: games at Petco can be painful.

More importantly, the Padres are on a 7-game home losing streak. Sustainable? It will have to be, if we’re to believe that this series decides the Giants’ trade deadline plans.
