Many of San Diego’s Padres fans had high expectations for the team this season. The Padres are off to a horrible start winning only one of their first six games. According to one to the top sports betting sites the Padres chances of winning a World Series this season are bleak to say the best. Along the long shots to win a world series this year are Colorado Rockies, Minnesota Twins, Miami Marlins and the Houston Astros. You know that it might be a long season when the Colorado Rockies who are long shots to win the league just took two out of three against the Padres.

On Tuesday the San Diego Padres will battle the Los Angles Dodgers on opening day at a sold out Petco Park. The Padres currently have the worst hitting team in the majors with a batting average of .204. The Padres whose strong suite has always been pitching and so far this season the Padres pitching staff has an ERA (earned run average) of 6.43. The ERA of 6.43 lands the Padres pitching staff as the second worst staff in the majors in front of Philadelphia Phillies who have an era of 7.10.

Now that we have the horrible stats out-of-the-way it’s time to focus on the good thing. The season consists of 162 games and means that the San Diego Padres have sometime to turn their horrible season around. For instance the Padres record leading up to the All-Star break last season was 20 wins and 41 losses. The Padres were predicted to lose 105 games in 2012 if they kept on losing. The opposite happened as the San Diego Padres came out of the gate swinging and finished the second half of the season strong with a record of 42 wins and 33 losses.

The San Diego Padres still have a long season ahead of them. The Padres who have had a major lack of run production really need Chase Headley to return from injury soon. Once Headley has gone to rehab and is back up and running expect more runs up on the score board. The Padres are also looking forward to the return of catcher Yasmani Grandal who was suspended for breaking the leagues substance abuse policy. Grandal is set to return to the Padres sometime near the end of May. The Padres need their rookie phenom Jedd Gyorko to get rolling. The Padres are expecting more homeruns out of their ball club since the fences in right field have been moved in. This could also create a problem for the struggling Padres pitching staff who has allowed 10 homeruns already this season.

According to the odds makers the Los Angles Dodgers have been selected to win the National Leauge West and have been selected among four other teams the Detroit Tigers, Los Angles Angels and Washington Nationals to compete for the World Series. The rest of the breakdown of the National Leauge West is as follows San Francisco Giants (2nd), Arizona Diamondbacks (3rd), Colorado Rockies (4th) and San Diego Padres (last).
