The Padres shouldn't be an underdog at home to start the season; the Brewers shouldn't be a favorite on the road.

Dinelson Lamet was supposed to be starting for the Padres Friday. Perdomo started 29 games previous year and finished the season 8-11 overall with a 4.67 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP.

You understand where he's coming from, you understand the philosophy that's going on, but on the same token when you're in this clubhouse your job is to go out and win a game each and every day and when you do that enough, then sure enough you have a chance to compete for a playoff spot, and that's what we want to do". Don't worry about the venue, the setting, the scenario.
