Overall team grade: F

While the pitching has been quite good, the offense has been appalling. The offense is historically bad while the pitching is only good in a normal, “this-season” kind of way. The Padres 34-47 first-half record is the second worst in baseball.   The team has fired the General Manager, in effect giving up on the season.

When ownership gives up before the halfway point, what other grade than F can be given?
