LONG TERM OUTLOOK: TRENDING UP
Before the season, the Padres were projected for 71.7 points (average per simulation) and things are looking positive. On 4/3 they had a 67.5% chance before increasing to 81.2% on 5/26. Their current chances are at 72.6%. The odds still give them a sliver of hope to win the NL at 2% (50/1 odds) and a 1% chance of winning it all (100/1).

Padres' Season Forecast Changes
SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: C
Based on the money line projected win totals in each game, the 46-50 Padres 'should have' 48 wins. They have 31 bad losses (they were favored or got blown out as slight underdogs) vs 22 good wins (wins as clear underdog, or 2+ final margin in what was expected to be a close game, or a 5+ final margin). They have won 50% of their road games and were expected to win 47%. At home they have a 46% win percentage vs an expected win rate of 54%. Their record over the last 3 weeks and win% (6-10, 38%) is under their expected 51% win percentage. In simulations where the Padres played every other team (neutral court in playoffs) they won just 46.7% of the time (#22 in the league). They have moved up from #25 in the league back on 4/19.
Their record is better than it should be. Their average run differential is -0.49 which ranks #13 in the NL, but their rank based on win percentage is #11. They are the #10 ranked team in run differential (based on all teams' road stats) and the #12 ranked team among home teams. Their average run differential in their past 9 games is -0.78 which ranks them #10 over this stretch, slightly better than overall.

NEXT 10 GAME OUTLOOK: CLOUDY
The forecast for their next 10 games can be described as 'cloudy'. They have 3 games where they are expected to be competitive with at least a 47% chance of winning, and 7 games where they are a clear underdog.
The most likely scenario over the next 10 games is a record of 4-6 (25% chance). Their chances of winning 6 or more are 19.8%. At #11 in the league, they are fighting with the Rockies for positioning. There is only a -0.16 advantage in projected wins over their next 10 games so we do not expect them to pick up ground in the league. They are ahead of the Pirates by half a point. With a -0.74 disadvantage in projected wins over their next 10 games they may find the gap between them closing.
