Gore and patino will either break or make peller this season.
We have a lot more questions than those two guys. What's our outfield going to look like? Is our pen worth what we paid for it? Is Tatis going to stay healthy? Is our first baseman finally going to start earning that fat contract? What will a second year with Manny look like? Is Paddack going to throw more than a few innings per game this season? Was Green the reason we sucked? Who is our catcher going to be -the guy who can't hit but can field or the guy who might or might not be able to do a little of both? Are we going to try to win now? Or are we going to give young players consistent starts with the hopes we can win in the future? Or are we going to keep doing what we've been doing, which is neither trying to win now nor developing players for the future?

I agree with Q, way more questions than answers. Everyone is giddy over their spring training record but it is only spring training. They are supposed to contend this year, so anything short of a wild card is a failure IMO. Their supposed big acquisition Tommy Pham is still not cleared to play the outfield (still nursing that bum elbow) and there’s talk that the Padres might trigger some kind of contingency (like void the deal). Great!

wtf is with the injury prone outfielders??? And then tatis as well??? Yeah I think we may have Telescope 2.0 (The Baseball Version). And agree with Q...lots more questions to be answered. Well, hopefully there IS a season. The way things are going it may not matter. We'll see. I hope spring/summer bring a seasonal pause in the coronavirus.
