Rags to Riches? The New-and-Improved San Diego Padres in Review

Out of all 30 MLB teams, hundreds of thousands of baseball fans are ecstatic to catch a glimpse of the new-and-improved San Diego Padres. Multiple sources reported that the Padres have been, “hyperactive” ever since the arrival of new general manager, A.J. Preller.

The Padres have now played the ‘do-or-die’ card (win or lose) with the additions of Will Middlebrooks, Wil Myers, Justin Upton, Matt Kemp and recent signee, James Shields. Although the Padres have been able to fulfill the positions at which they were initially weak, they have to make sure that they don’t limit themselves financially and continue to spread the wealth. Kemp, Myers, Upton and Middlebrooks have all had their ups and downs between efficient and non-efficient seasons but the Padres are hoping that they can put it all together in 2015.

This season can go one of two ways for the Padres: They can have a disappointing season like the 2014 New York Yankees (no disrespect, it’s just that they did not seem to play as well as sources had predicted due to injuries). On the flipside, they could turn out be a miraculous success story similar to the 2001 Arizona Diamondbacks, the team that won the World Series that year. Will the Padres crumble under pressure or shine bright and turn heads in the NL West division? That question is yet to be answered.
