Make your 2015 Padres Predictions

New, 65 comments

A.J. Preller held up the show with his blockbuster trading but the Padres 25-man roster is finally set. For the better part of a decade we've asked you to make predictions, this year will be no different.

Do not take this task lightly!  At the season's end you'll be held responsible for what you've done here today. If you claim to be clairvoyant you'll need to prove it with detailed precision, vague predictions will not be accepted or tolerated.

As usual all manners of prediction techniques are welcome, though not all recommended. Do you dare to distance yourself from your your worldly opinions, the sabermetrics that shackle and confine your brain and the Moneyball soundtrack that controls your moods? Have you considered that there are other ways to make predictions -- some very powerful? Be warned these methods come at a cost.

There are those each year that insist upon dabbling in the occult and experimenting with various forms of divination practices. They conjure game results from the ether and cast ghoulish spells to force their will. They use astral projection to spirit walk into future realms. They allow summoned spirits to use their bodies as vessels to guide planchettes across Ouija boards. They deal stylized baseball tarot cards and read passion fruit tea leaves. These strategies are considered to be highly accurate by some, but meddling in the dark arts is quite dangerous. For those that dwell in the darkness will demand payment upon delivery.

Answer me the following 5 questions in the comments section.

  1. What will be the 2015 Padres' record?
  2. What place will they finish in the NL West?
  3. Who will win the National League Western Division?
  4. Which Padre player will be traded before seasons end?
  5. Who will be the Padres All-Star(s) ?

Predict World Series Champions, All Star Game winner, etc. if you are are so inclined.
