5 worst Padres moments of 2014
2014 was yet again another disappointing season for the San Diego Padres. From Josh Johnson and Cory Luebke exiting before the season even started to the horrible sudden losses of greats Jerry Coleman and Tony Gwynn. It will be rough to relive these moments after watching underdog teams like the Kansas City Royals take off in the postseason, but someday the Padres will be back to contending and it can only go up from here for Padres fans. Changes are in full bloom with the Padres, from the mid-season firing of G.M. Josh Byrnes to the hiring of new G.M. A.J. Preller.
The horrible month that was June basically put the Padres out of contention and the eventual departures of third baseman Chase Headley, catcher Nick Hundley and outfielder Kyle Blanks. Lots of changes happened this season and this off-season should have more to come. The Padres need to get better on offense and might have to part ways with some quality pitching in order to get some consistent bats in. But for now, let’s revisit what were some of the many lows in 2014. The following are the five worst moments of the 2014 San Diego Padres season.
