The San Diego Padres have officially mailed it in for the 2018 season as they attempt to land the highest possible draft pick for 2018. Instead of trading starting pitchers Tyson Ross and Jordan Lyles before the July 31 non-waiver deadline, the team simply let them go via waiver claims (to save a bit of money), Ross to the Cardinals and Lyles to the Brewers. If I’m a fan living in San Diego, why would I bother attending a game now? The Friars open a series in Milwaukee on Tuesday. Here’s a look at two intriguing matchups this week.
