2008 Season Previews: San Diego Padres
Thursday, April 03, 2008
Welcome to the 23rd of 30 "2008 Team Previews", where I'm - you guessed it! - offering up a little preview of the 2008 season for each of the teams. Nothing super fancy, (I'm not writing books here munecas), just a few notes on what major moves the teams made over the winter and a thought or two on their upcoming season. I'm running out of time since the season is underway, but I'll try to churn out these last few asap!

I'm going in reverse order of 2007 standings, so next up is....

San Diego Padres

2007 Record: .546 (89-74), 3rd place in NL West

2006 Record: .543 (88-74), 2nd place in NL West

Who’s Out: Mike Cameron (OF), Marcus Giles (INF), Rob Mackowiak (OF), Terrmel Sledge (OF)

Who’s In: Randy Wolf (P), Jim Edmonds (OF), Tad Iguchi (INF), Mark Prior (P), Tony Clark (1B)

Notes: I wrote some delightful poems for FanHouse previewing teams in rhyme-form, so I shall share with you here my Padres poem!

Nothing's more disappointing than missing a post-season chance
(Just ask the Yankees, who've become used to that song and dance)

The Padres were so close but the Rockies wound up on top
This year San Diego wants to put that to a stop

With Peavy, Hoffman, and Young their pitching is great
PETCO's a beast for batters so in the pitchers' hands lie their fate

Like the Giants their offense is weak
Kouz and A-Gon better step up lest they leave the team up a creek

If they can stay injury-free the division is theirs for the taking
I have a good feeling this is a division champ team in the making!

Next up: Philadelphia Phillies

Fun Fact O' The Week

In 2009 Curtis Granderson published a book: All You Can Be: Dream It, Draw It, Become It! Granderson "shares the lessons that he learned growing up--the importance of family and choosing the right friends, the power of listening and staying positive, and most important, the value of being yourself."
