    The San Diego Padres suck.  One quick glance at the bottom of the MLB standings will prove that fact, as their 24-46 record is the worst among all teams in the Majors.  Needless to say, they can probably afford to try just about anything to help turn their season around and improve attendance numbers (they […]
