    will the real padre fans please stand up?

    friar challenge.

    though i too have been scarce around here, i want to see who is here, and who is a padre fan. it's actually a great time in our franchise...retaining players, new ownership, decent bats. and the big one? management finally seems smart enough to build a PETCO-type team (speedy, good D, contact hitters).

    we should invest 75% of our team's cap into starting pitching. we can win 1-0 all the way to the world series.

    It is finally a good time to be a Padres fan. This team reminds me of the Rays. We finally have good, young talent across the board. It is just a matter of staying healthy and making a few good signings this off season.

    Pitchers to target: Kuroda, Haren, Ervin Santana, Liriano?

    Right field options?: Victorino, BJ Upton, Hunter?

    C-GRANDAL
    1B-ALONSO
    2B-FORSYTHE/GYORKO
    3B-HEADLEY
    SS-CABRERA/FORSYTHE
    LF-QUENTIN
    CF-MAYBIN
    RF-VICTORINO/UPTON/HUNTER?

    You guys are going to be good really soon. NL West baseball is going to get exciting in the coming years with 4 legitimate teams.

    Gotta have owners who want to know and are willing to take a chance by spending some dough. Let's go Boys!

    a lot, if i'm honest. he was coveted before the trade deadline passed. and since, his value has only risen.

    i would be interested in acquiring martin prado and kris medlen. with headley, we'd have to fork over a prospect or two to make it work, but i'd think long and hard about it from both sides. we need pitching and OFers with decent bats. you need a 3B to replace aging/retiring chipper.

    could work for both.
