What if: the Padres Weren't Called the Padres?


So I read an article the other day that stated the owner of the Houston Astros is considering a uniform and name change when the team migrates to the American League. That got me to thinking about what other names would befit a San Diego basball team; what if the Padres weren't called the Padres? Obviously the name would be associated with something about San Diego. What the hell is San Diego known for? Its weather? Beaches? Its proximity to Tijuana? Fish tacos?!?!? I cannot think of a better name for our fair city's baseball team. However, Gaslamp Ball has much more creative thinkers than I. I present for your consideration a hypothetical name change for the Padres. Names cannot be variations of 'Padres' (e.g. Friars, and...well, that's the only one I can think of right now).
