The Padres have had an exceptional second half this far. They have far exceeded their expected output and have received some swagger from the likes of Yangervis Solarte and Rymer Liriano. Could this be due to the complete lack of expectations for the Padres? Could this be due to trying to show off for A.J. Preller the new general manager? Either way, don’t fall for the illusion of grandeur, or potentially making the playoffs.
The Padres have an exciting future. They have a strong farm system and should start seeing the benefits of great scouting and developments as early as next year. We here at Friars on Base have put together our top 20 Padres prospects. We are excited about the talent the Padres have, and look forward to cheering for them for years to come.
