On this Christmas Day, we look at whether or not the San Diego Padres were naughty or nice this past year and what Santa Claus might bring them.
The San Diego Padres have been on the naughty list for several years now it seems like. It’s there turn to be on the nice list and for Santa to bring them something good.
But before we get into that, we want to wish all of our readers a very Merry Christmas. Since taking over the site at the beginning of November the Padres community has embraced us and we hope to bring you even better Padres articles in the future.
As we sit back this Christmas and enjoy time with friends and family, I can’t help but reflect on what I hope Santa Claus brings the Padres this Christmas.
The other day I wrote about my expectations for the coming decade, which include winning multiple division titles and a World Series.
Thinking more short-term, I hope Santa brings the Padres a healthy 2020 season for Fernando Tatis Jr. I hate that his rookie season was interrupted with an injury, and I really want him to have that breakout season in 2020 to fully establish himself as one of the best players in the game.
If the Padres were extra good this year, perhaps Santa Claus will provide them a team that is willing to take on all of Wil Myers‘ contract.
OK, maybe that’s asking for a little too much. But I’ll settle for a team to take on 60 percent of his contract.
And finally, I hope Santa brings us a postseason berth for the 2020 season. It’s been far too long since we witnessed the Padres in the postseason. Even if it’s just a one-game Wild Card, I really want to see this team breakthrough and make the postseason in 2020.
That doesn’t seem like too much to ask for this Christmas, does it? Let us know what you hope Santa brings the Padres this Christmas in the comments below. And again, we hope you all have a blessed Christmas Day with family and friends.
