You may not know it by looking at the NL West standings, and you may not remember those heady days in May when the teams were battling, but the San Diego Padres are the only NL West team to have not spent a day in first place this season.
With their 2-1 loss to the Braves yesterday, the Padres were mathematically eliminated from the postseason.
