Scorecard EXTRA preview: Cubs vs. Padres

Thumbnail image for R05_SCXTRAPADRES AUG10.jpgThough San Diego’s pitching staff, with its NL-leading 3.23 ERA, has stood out this season and helped the Padres to their unexpected contender role in the West, first baseman Adrian Gonzalez has once again been the rock of the team’s lineup. 

And while the Cubs need to focus on getting to Jon Garland, Mat Latos, and other quality Padres throwers that will appear throughout the week, they can’t sleep on the big guy that’ll stand in every day.

Christina Kahrl of Baseball Prospectus explains why (right) in the August edition of Scorecard EXTRA.
