Cabrera, Damon, Ordonez, Jackson, Boesch and Guillen are all OPS+ 124 or better. Everybody else with any meaningful number of PA's is at OPS+ 85 or worse.

Boy, is that misleading for the Padres, who have the third-worst team OPS+ in the National League. Chase Headley is right at 100, but Jerry Hairston has an OPS+ of 53. Meanwhile, the Padres' regular shortstop and center fielder, Everth Cabrera and Tony Gwynn, who just miss qualifying for the batting title due to injuries and inability to hit, respectively, have OPS+'s of 52 and 57.

I'm pretty sure OPS+ and ERA+ numbers are based on old park factors right now, so any in-season numbers should be taken with a grain of salt.

In a position-by-position breakdown, they're hitting below 101 at C, 1B, 2B, SS, and CF.

Cabrera's replacement at SS, Jason Donald has an OPS+ of -12 through 6 G
