Today, the Padres picked up not one, but two aces in two separate trades, Yu Darvish and Blake Snell. They gave up two major leaguers and several prospects. Between their fierce offense and these pick ups, looks like San Diego made strives in their Cold War with the division-rival Dodgers. Remember when San Diego was an outpost of the MLB landscape which received little press? Doesn’t look like that now, hmm. As of right now, I’m thinking of a Padres-White Sox World Series assuming there will be a season.
