All-time San Diego Padres

May 5, 2009

Throw in Mark Davis, who won the ’89 Cy Young, and I think you have the best collection of closers. The starting pitching, on the other hand, is awful.

    excellent research, as always

    agreed their SP’s, as a whole, have been less than spectacular

    I know Ozzie is mostly a Cardinal, but I always remember his being traded for Gary

    Now I know the SD franchise is relatively short, but as a whole, I like the pitchers better than the position players.

    Agree. Playing in a pitcher’s park helps.
