It's turning into a great competition for 1st place in the N.L West. The most remarkable thing about it is San Diego, after winning 7 straight, is only 1 game out.

They were a team that was picked to be one of the worst 5 teams in MLB, and early on they appeared to be going that way, but now they are right in the mix.

It's always fun for me to see teams that were written off prove people wrong. Kinda like Oakland and Baltimore last year.

It will be interesting to see if they can keep it up, especially since their lineup is scattered with former Reds.
