The Padres announced their Opening Day roster this afternoon.  I wonder if it's like in High School where they post a list on the coach's door and all the guys gather around to see if they made varsity or if they all just keep checking for the press release.

I can't wait for the introductions on Opening Day because, frankly, I have no idea who the majority of these guys are.  By my count, fourteen of them could walk right by me and I wouldn't recognize them.  Nine of them I don't think I've ever even seen their picture.  There's one that I don't even recognize his name.

Peep your 2011 Padres after the jump!
