For many years to come.

The Padres turned their fortunes around with the trade-deadline addition of Juan Soto, who is considered to be the best young hitter in the game.

It should have an effect on the league. The little brother Padres won't be pushed by the Dodgers anymore.

The Dodgers had won the division eight times in a row.

There is no way you can ignore the fact that the Padres will change everything in a hurry.

The Padres won't catch the Dodgers for the NL West title, but they will be a threat in the playoffs.

Josh Bell was traded from the Nationals to the Padres.

The Padres are a good team. Even for people in L.A., it is impossible to not notice.

The Padres felt like they were better after the blockbuster deal. He speaks for himself. He is arguably the best hitter in baseball because of his talent and age. That should help us.

Many believe that the Padres have replaced the Dodgers as World Series favorites due to the addition of Fernando Tatis Jr. and the addition of catcher Juan Rivera.

Those who think the Padres can get there at the end have a right to do so.

The Padres didn't fall apart even though they didn't have Tatis Jr. They were the second wild-card team in the NL.

That is amazing. The man put together a monster.

Not sure if many teams could do that if their top dog was down the whole season.

Where is the New York Yankees located? The best record in baseball isn't sitting atop it. That's true.

He is a candidate for the Most Valuable Player. He was the leader of the Nationals in the World Series in 2019. The Series Most Valuable Player was the man. He is known for his plate discipline. If he isn't pitched to, he will walk. It's difficult to teach a young hitter that trait. He has a career slash line of.289/.427/.538.

The Padres were able to get the catcher after he turned down the Nationals' offer. He won't be a free agent until after the 2020 season.

Josh Hader was acquired by the Padres. On the season, he has 29 saves. He is as good as it gets when he is correct.

The Padres' starting rotation is ranked fourth in the NL. The staff is led by Yu Darvish. The pitcher has a 2.65 earned run average. The Padres don't need to score 10 runs a night in order to win.

The team can win on the mound or at the plate.

The team has the talent and can do it. It is up to us to get the work done.

The Padres have put together a team that will contend for the World Series title in their 54 years of existence.

It is not just a last chance to reach their ultimate goal. Not by a large margin. They will be a problem for a long time if they are signed long term. Fans of the Dodgers know that. They are scared of the Padres due to that.
