On this Thanksgiving day, we give you three reasons to be thankful to be a San Diego Padres fan going into the next decade.
First I’d like to wish a very Happy Thanksgiving to all of our readers out there. I’ve only been covering the San Diego Padres at FanSided for a little less than a month, but the support I’ve already received from our readers has been tremendous.
I look forward to bringing you Padres coverage and opinions throughout the offseason and into the 2020 season.
But here are the three biggest reasosn why I’m happy to be a San Diego Padres fan right now.
3. Fernando Tatis Jr.
There are several bright stars in this wonderful game and Fernando Tatis Jr. is at the top of that list. The saddest part of the 2019 season is that we didn’t get to witness his greatness for an entire year.
I’m thankful that he’ll be playing shortstop for the Padres for a long time and can’t wait to see what he has in store for us in 2020.
2. The Fanbase
Again, I haven’t been covering the Padres very long, but the activity from the fanbase in the comments and on social media is very exciting to see.
It’s always fun to have a fanbase that is excited and engaged about the team. I’ve definitely seen that so far from Padres fans and look forward to getting to know all of you better in the future.
From everyone at Friars on Base, we appreciate all of the support that you give us.
1. The best is yet to come
And certainly the biggest reason to be thankful as a Padres fan right now is because we believe the best is yet to come.
Not only are things on the rise at Friars on Base, but this San Diego team is on the rise as well. The core is there for this team to be a contender for a long time, the ownership is willing to increase the payroll to go for it, and the front office is eager to win now.
I’m thankful to be a fan of a team that is coming into its window of success and I can’t wait to see where they go from here.
Again, I’d like to wish all of our readers a Happy Thanksgiving and hope you enjoy a day of rest with friends and family. Let us know in the comments below why you’re thankful to be a Padres fan.
