It’s that time of year again! Bring out the bunting, shine up the seats, and fire up the grills, because it’s time for Opening Day 2015–the day of the year when children of all ages drift on down to their local ballparks to celebrate the start of baseball season.
When the San Diego Padres take the field against the 2014 World Series champions San Francisco Giants for a four-game home stand beginning April 9, they will do so with one of the strongest starting lineups since they moved into Petco Park in 2004, thanks to team management increasing payroll to a club-record $94 million to help acquire talent in the off-season. Since the additions of Justin Upton, Matt Kemp, Derek Norris, and Will Middlebrooks, the Pads are looking to compete with division rivals Los Angeles Dodgers and Giants, and even be contend for the National League pennant.
