San Diego Padres are quite a bit worse at finding second basemen than the Reds are good. Their second basemen have been almost entirely atrocious—the only real bright spots are Mark Loretta and Roberto Alomar, both of whom only was a starter there for three seasons. Only one guy, Tim Flannery, made it to four seasons. Quilvio Veras, the third-best second baseman they’ve ever had, was roughly 7% below average offensively by the already low standards of the position. Before Alomar came along, their best full second base season came from Alan Wiggins, who put up a sOPS+ of 98 and stole 66 bases. The only negatives were defense (he was really an outfielder), a stormy personality, and drug problems.
