San Diego Padres vs Washington Nationals Prediction

I’m not running to the window to lay these sorts of prices with the Padres, a team that’s underachieved the last few seasons. However, Patrick Corbin is a pitcher we’ve faded a lot over the years, and this season is no different. Corbin is easily one of the worst starting pitchers in baseball, and that includes a 5.73 ERA and 1.55 WHIP since 2021. I see Corbin, I fade. It’s just that simple. Of course, I’d grab the RL as well to shave down the juice.
