You mean the same Giants that outscored them last year?
Yes because taking a straight runs scored is the best method to seeing which offense is better. Not like there would be any factors involved in that like playing in Petco or anything. Plus when you look at the lineups name me a Giants hitter who even holds a candle to Brian Giles or Adrian Gonzalez. Just look at the team OPS+ for each. 98 for the Padres and 88 for the Giants.
The Giants aren't exactly playing in a hitter's paradise either. I agree that the Padres have a better offense, but it's not as if they're leaps and bounds better than the Giants like you made it sound. It's not like he ranked them over the Red Sox or Yankees.
