I hope they eat Myers contract. They have to.And the reason I keep harping on the hitting is because I think our lineup is going to be very similar next year. Tatis, Machado, Renfroe and Hosmer are guaranteed and most likely Urias and Mejia. Myers is the big question mark and Margot seems to have earned his spot but that's 7-8 spots in the lineup that are pretty much set. If they keep striking out like this and continue to struggle scoring without homeruns (though they've been better at that lately), this team isn't going to go anywhere.
Yeah, they keep firing the hitting coach every year it seems like. I'm not sure how they fix this problem.I hope they eat Myers contract. They have to.
If they can’t move him with Yates then he has to go. Period.
We will not contend if Myers is starting.
The only guarantees I see are Tatis, hosmer and machado.
They need to improve on the rest.
I prefer Margot over renfroe.
But yes, they need major upgrades and it’s not coming from the minors concerning hitting.
Historical the padres have been downright terrible as an organization developing hitters. Can’t blame the hitting coach every year. It’s an entire organizational failure.
Hedges will never be able to hit. He's a great backup/platoon guy to have.Without tatis, the lineup sucks.
Not sold on naylor Urias or hedges.
I would pursue bats this offseason.
