These Padres are young and inexperienced, says Gaslamp Ball. The average Padre today has two years less experience in the bigs than the average Padre from a year ago. Heck, most of the MLB experience is under Brian Giles' orange tan and saggy love handles.
The Dodgers are made of Manny, and eight other guys. But really, they've got quite a talented lineup and might lead the league in runs scored by a team not based in Colorado.
Lineups. Go. Finally.
