    The padres have been awful, which means there due for a win or two.

    Game 1 could be lost, and game 2 who knows if Chad is gonna be 100%. But I say 2 out of 3

    Also, why the hell do the padres have a 340 game time start? Weird

    The cockiness is overwhelming...signs of weakness, big time. Known as the "Custer Attitude".
    Good to see Chad is back. the guy was all the way back I felt last year, in a stretch of games....everything he ever had was working. I actually forgot about him. I'm thinking he must be considered fully restored for them to off Harang like they did. For the ancient guy especially.
    I fully expect if Chad gets scrambled, a bonanza of scrotum, "sack", "vaginal" , and testicular posts about him. I think there should be a prize for the most original reference, Irish... the LAD Bad Chad GoNAD Award or something. it would be so rad...
    I wonder if Harang's, uh, haranguing of the FO because he was in limbo had anything to do with the surprising move? Like "get rid of me if I'm not starting--to anywhere, any team...even the Yankees".
    He can't complain....he's on a team tied for first in the NLW.
    Bonjour, Aaron....if it doesn't work out in the Mile High, there's always the French modelling thing to fall back on.

    The Padres are honestly horrible, especially without Headley. I wouldn't be surprised by a sweep but I'm expecting 2/3 just because I expect one of Beckett/Bills to be bad.

    I agree. Of course, now that I said that they'll both probably be awesome and Greinke will get shelled.

    You do realize that it is a scientific fact that this particular event is an impossibility, right?

    The lack of confidence in this thread is pathetic.

    A vast majority of his success has come at home in his career. In the last 4 years, over 400 innings, he has a road ERA of 3.77, now by no means is that bad, but he is not nearly as "invincible" on the road.

    That's in the BD era, now he is in the D era which means invincibility everywhere.

    Padres ready for home opener at redesigned Petco
    By Doug Miller | MLB.com
    April 7, 2013 8:09 PM ET

    The Dodgers are heading down the San Diego Freeway to start a familiar National League West showdown against the Padres at Petco Park, and when the teams get ready to play in Tuesday's 3:40 p.m. PT series opener, they'll have similar goals in mind.

    Both goals will begin on the pitcher's mound, where both starters are looking for quick reversals of fortune from their respective season-opening outings.

    For the Dodgers, it will be veteran right-hander Josh Beckett looking to improve.

    Beckett struggled in his first start of the year. He gave up five runs in six innings against the defending World Series champion Giants in San Francisco, allowing home runs to Pablo Sandoval and Hunter Pence. Beckett was close to being better, having been ahead in the count against all six batters who got hits off of him. Only three of the runs he allowed were earned.

    "I made some pitches when I needed to, and didn't make some when I needed to," Beckett said. "On Sandoval, I tried to go up there and the video showed I got it up, and I don't know if he was looking for it, but he hit it good. Overall, I felt I was getting on top of the ball better today than the last couple spring starts."

    On the other side of the diamond, Padres lefty Clayton Richard will be in a similar situation. He's looking to rebound from his 2013 debut, when he gave up three homers and seven earned runs on seven hits in 4 1/3 innings against the Mets.

    Richard led the NL in home runs allowed last year with 31, so it's something that he'll need to improve upon to get where he -- and the Padres -- want to go this season.

    "When you're not able to command down in the zone without your best stuff, it's a bad night," Richard said. "My last couple of side [sessions], I felt good. My last outing [March 29], I felt good. Then, I got out there tonight and it wasn't there."


    Dodgers: Kemp due to bust out?

    Slugger Matt Kemp has gotten off to a slow start at the plate this season, but he has done very well in his career against Richard. Entering Tuesday's game, Kemp is batting .375 (12-for-32) against the Padres left-hander with two home runs, seven RBIs, four doubles, a walk and a 1.081 on-base-plus-slugging percentage.
    • Infielder Nick Punto is 5-for-8 (.625) against Richard in his career, although all five hits have been singles.
    • Beckett has a career 3.80 ERA on five days' rest, and is 5-2 in his career against the Padres, with a 2.09 ERA.
    Padres: Gyorko already making history

    Infielder Jedd Gyorko, who made his Major League debut on Monday to open the season, was the only Padres player to record a hit in all three games of the season-opening series against the Mets, going 1-for-4 in each game. According to Elias Sports Bureau, Gyorko is the third rookie in Padres history to hit safely in each of the team's first three games of a season. The others to do so were Juan Bonilla (1981) and Benito Santiago (1987).
    • San Diego is 22-22 all-time in the first home game of the season. Tuesday marks the second consecutive and third overall time in the last five seasons that the Padres have faced the Dodgers in their home opener.
    Worth noting
    • Beckett has handled Padres slugger Carlos Quentin in their meetings so far. Quentin is 2-for-11 (.182) against Beckett, with no walks and five strikeouts, although both hits were doubles.
    • Richard has done quite well against Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier, who is batting a career .143 (4-for-28) against the southpaw.
