Someone isn't paying attention here. The Twins are on fire having won seven straight games including nine out of their 10. The seven-game streak has seen them outscore the opponent 43-13 and yielding less than two runs per game. How does a San Diego team that has already scored three runs or less in a game 31 times stay in this one? Jake Peavy threw a good game last night, but got just one run - a very familiar story surrounding this Padre team. This is a team that has had their run as they were recently 13-6 over a 19-game stretch, but have given it all back as they are now 1-7 in their last eight. Remember that outside of that 13-6 run, this team is 19-40 otherwise and favored against one of the hottest teams in baseball? We truly can't see any value in the home team, but chock full of value on the visiting Twins to make it back-to-back over the Padres and eight straight overall.
