Does Maddux deserve this kind of respect? No! The guy is 4-8 on the season with a pedestrian 4.29 ERA. Over his last three starts he has posted a 7.54 ERA. His team averages 3.5 runs per game at home on .236 batting. They are 24-34 at home this season - a worse record than San Francisco owns on the road. The Giants are 14-5 this season vs. teams that are outscored by 1+ run per game. They are also 12-4 vs. teams with an OBP of .315 or worse (San Diego's is .309). Correia has not been sharp of late but agains this Padres offense, any pitcher can look like a hero. We will fade the Pads at what we feel is way too high a price.
