The Padres are eager to flip there disappointing year and frankly, a disappoint of years. Clearly, the future of baseball in San Diego looks a lot brighter than the recent past. With additions like Fernando Tatis Jr,  Manny Machado, Chris Paddack and maybe even getting Mookie Betts from Boston Red Socks, it looks really good for the Padres. San Diego hopes 2020 marks a breakthrough season that could begin a sustained run of contention in the National League West. Padres has always maintained there belief that progress isn’t linear in Major League Baseball. The Padres wouldn’t be the first team to jump from 70 wins straight into contention. Their roster is still filled with question marks and people who haven’t proven themselves yet. But a lot of those question marks are young players with serious upside. If the Padres can find the right pieces to fill in around the edges, they might have the core in place to push for a Wild Card spot in 2020. We will have to see what will happen in the upcoming season, this season has lots of hopes for exciting games. many fans cant wait to see if there team will pull threw, and win It all.
