Welcome into the broadcast.
I am Joe Mackey, and I'm happy to be here today to talk to you about what's contribute.
What is contributing to the Padres success because they have had a great last couple games there up in the standings.
Their over 500 now.
They were under 500 to start the week.
Now they're perfectly at 500.
It's been a great week for them.
There are five game winning streak.
I'm gonna talk to you guys about a little bit of a why.
I think they're on a five game winning streak and how they're so so.
I'm going to start off by saying they start.
I'm gonna go over their concerns recorded there.
Week off with the Rangers, right? They want they swept this Siri's right.
It was a great Siri's all Padres all Padre del Padres, right? They came into the week under 500.
They were facing the I think they opened up their series against the Rangers on Monday.
So yeah, Monday they won 14 before that is, tatty says home run Grand slam.
Um so they want 14 to 4 t six Grand slam contributed to that.
Next day, they won 6 to 4.
The next day, they won in 10 inning, 6 to 3.
See these air overly good games for the Padres? They have been doing really good job so far throughout the week.
Next game on Thursday, August 20th.
Two days ago, they won in extra innings again, right? They won't eat to seven in 10 innings.
Then you go to Thursday.
Excuse me Friday, which was yesterday when they played the Astros with the red hot Astra score on a nine game winning streak.
And yet they still won, 43 What I have seen from the Padres is okay.
Starting pitching, right.
They don't have a great starting pitching, but this week their starting pitching has been quite good.
It's been it's been showing up more.
What I'm gonna talk about is I've seen a really good bullpen from them.
See, in these outings they went extra innings in, I believe, two or three of these games and they want all those extra inning games because their bullpen is so good.
So I think their bullpen is a big contributor to the Padres success.
I also believe their bats or hot their lineup is amazing.
He's gonna be a stud one day, right? Hit a grand slam.
He hit a home run.
He's the legal year.
Home runs. Can you get any better? Right. They have hospital.
They have, You know, a great team.
You know, it's just crazy that Ibama team can be like that.
And they got the They got off to a slow start.
They really that they have t's Machado Hosmer, Tommy Pham who was injured that Wil Myers, Um and then in their starting rotation, where I'm going to talk about is Chris Paddock, who has been great Drew Palm rants who has been a great closer for them.
Matt Stram, Craig Stamen, both great relievers for them.
They've been great relievers for them this year.
Um, Garrett Richards.
He's been a great picture.
See, what I'm seeing is a NCAR V eights, all these good, great pictures, most of our bullpen pitchers, and that is why it's contributing to their success because they're close games.
Mostly, besides the 14 before giving its arrangers there close games because I said two or three, the excuse want extra inning freight, and they're getting the bullpen support that they need.
The bullpen is getting the run support that they need, also with Totti's hospital.
Myers Machado They had four brands.
Lamps back to back to back to back days.
That's absolutely crazy.
So I think a lot of their success is coming from the bass in a bullpen.
They currently sit, I believe, in second place in the NL West, second place in the NL West, four games back in the first place, 28 Dodgers there, 16 and 12 there, five in five in the last 10 9 and four, um, home and 70 on the road.
So they've been great.
What I've seen great bullpen run support that they need decent starting pitching.
Let's see if they can make a run for the playoffs this year.
As of now, they are in the playoffs since they are in second place.
Um, let's see if they can continue their success.
