Quiz: Name the 18 starting first basemen in Padres history

Today's quiz is a lot easier than the last couple I've made recently. I have faith that the most of you will get the majority of these answers. There might even be somebody or somebodies who gets them all right, although I think there's at least one answer that will stump just about everyone.

After making the quiz I realized the wording sounded a bit deceptive. It is by no means a list of everyone who has started a game at first for the Padres; ain't nobody got time for all that mess. Instead it's the players who spent at least a season as the go-to guy. When determining the starting first baseman for each season I went by number of games played, not necessarily who was the Opening Day starter. As a clue I've provided the year(s) each player served as the primary first baseman; they may have been on the team other seasons as a reserve or starting elsewhere in the field.

As always, be sure to share in the poll how many you got right. Also, if when you leave a comment, don't forget to utilize SB*Nation's awesome spoiler alert black bar feature where applicable out of respect for those who haven't taken the quiz yet. Here's a quick tutorial for the uninitiated since it has become a FAQ at this point:
