Just to defend the Padres pick a bit...

I like the Padres as a team in a short series. They definitely don't have the staff to win 90+ games in a season, but I do like them in a short series. I like Peavy in games 1 and 4, yes, even against Carpenter. I'd imagine Eaton will go in game 2 and the Padres should go back to San Diego with a split. Astacio has pitched very well in August/September, giving them a good shot there. If they got up 2-1 in the series for game 4 at home, they could save Peavy for a game 5, or put him out there in Game 4.

The Cardinals are the better team, I think, but in a five game series, I really like how the Padres match up. Their flaws are covered up a bit.
