San Diego Padres

2017: 94-68, 2nd in AL West, Second Wild Card Spot, Draft Position 21

Overview: What you are supposed to do is win. The Padres last year finished one game behind the White Sox for the second wild card spot. They then lost game 3 to the future world series champions. That is an admirable season.

I guess the only questions now are: A) What god did the Padres offend to have this plague fall upon them? and B) Who do they have to kill to slake that godís anger? I guess there were some signs that this team had cracks (obviously David Ortiz was retiring). The team may have spent some future to win now. But quite simply the wheels fell of this thing pretty much out of nowhere.

Staff ace Ian Kennedyís ERA went from 3.68 to 5.38. #2 guy Jeremy Hellickson went from 3.71 to 5.43. #3 starter Matt Wisler lost his job. #4 Clay Buchholz blew out his arm. Then #5 Jake Peavy took a year off to get through a divorce. On offense, the story is similar. Adrian Gonzalez tanked, Brad Miller tanked, Gregor Blanco tanked. Aaron Hill tanked. When you look at the 2017 instruction sheet and what remains on the 2018 roster, you realize this is a special kind of bad luck. Again, not that the team was amazing before. But this teamís window did not slowly come down as Ortiz went to pasture. Ortiz must have left the gas on and the whole team just detonated.

Starting Rotation: The saving grace is that San Diegoís park is huge. The problem with his four starters is they give up the long ball. In San Diego that should be less of a problem. On the road, these guys could get hammered. Dinelson Lamet has talent and could very well anchor the rotation for a while if he can get help in the future though.

Bullpen: They do not have a closer. The bullpen also exploded. They currently have some guys in the pen who can contribute but they give up a bunch of home runs. The question here is just how much does the team want to spend to round out the pen and save some games they are in.

Starting Line-Up: They went out and got Jackie Bradley and Hanley Ramirez. They lock down 1st and an outfield spot. Jedd Gyorko and Manuel Margot lock down 3rd and center. Christian Vazquez and Yasmani Grandal make for a good catching duo. With some creativity the four headed monster of Brad Mills, Deven Marrero, Wilmer Difo and Brock Holt should get production out of the middle of the infield. The issue is Adrian Gonzalez needs help at dh (I think) and Gregor Blanco needs help in the outfield. If the Padres can take care of that, they will have a competent offense. I am not sure it will compensate for the pitching though.

Defense and Speed: They have a good outfield defense and no real weaknesses. The outfield should also steal some bases as should Wilmer Difo.

Surplus/Deficiencies: I think they still need a 5th starter. They a part-time dh and outfielder. They may want to bolster the bullpen if they want to keep scores reasonable. I am not sure exactly what they have to move though. The obvious bits they have already moved in a way that has gotten this team back on the field.

Outlook: I think this team is still better than Oakland. But it could be headed for a lottery pick in any case. If they get a couple of guys to come back, this team may not be down for long. I do not think hope is lost. I think they have some guys to anchor the team in the future, but they are going to have to ride this year out and hope the draft and the parent club feed some stuff to help them get through it.
