What could have been for the Padres this Opening Day

The San Diego Padres, maybe more than any other team, could not wait to take the field on this Opening Day for the 2020 season.

After a disappointing end to the 2019 season, one that saw their rising start at shorts in Fernando Tatis Jr. get injured and missed the final few months, there was a lot of excitement for 2020.

With a couple of offseason moves to try and boost the offense, and some high upside arms in the rotation and bullpen, this team looked like one that could compete in the National League — at least for a Wild Card spot.
