THE SAN DIEGO PADRES DYNASTY

The San Diego Padres A Baseball Dynasty

San Diego, CA (McM.com) – Are the San Diego Padres a dynasty? That’s the question I asked myself after The Padres season 27 postseason performance. Definition of a sports dynasty; a sport dynasty is a team or individual that dominates their sport or league for an extended length of time, winning championships for a bulk period of time.

The Padres destroyed the postseason competition, going 12–2, which included a sweep of the Washington DC Nationals in the McCabe World Series. That championship was their sixth (6), which is the most in league history. No other major league team has more than 3 World Series Championships, the Florida Marlins and the Boston Red Sox both have 3 Championships and the Anaheim Angels and the Detroit Tigers both have each. The architect and owner of this organization is jgarron. He has been there since day one, as the expansion owner, his clubs resume is absolutely astounding. As we stated earlier the Padres have 6 World Series Championships, 10 National League Pennants, 20 divisional titles, 22 seasons of 90+ wins, 8 seasons of 100+ wins, and they have never finished lower than 2nd  in the Western Division. In 27 Major League seasons the San Diego Padres have a won/loss record of 2622–1752, an average of 97 wins per season. This is an organization that has set the pace for the rest of the league.

In the Beginning, Expansion

In season 1 the San Diego Padres (82-80) did not have a single player make the major league All-Star Team. They did not have a solitary award winning player during that season. However, one could argue that T.J. Starr (1B) 38 home runs, 101 RBIs, 325 batting average, 412 OBP,  and a OPS of 1.004 should have found a spot on the inaugural squad. In season 2 that injustice will be rectify when the Padres place three players on the All-Star team including TJ Star. The other two were Norm Howard (RF) and the clubs first 20 game winner Norberto Crespo (21-9). Also that year Star received a silver slugger award and Crespo walked away with the clubs first gold glove. 

Other award winners

In season 8 Ronnie Hoover (SP) won the National League Rookie of the Year award. Season 19 saw the Padres collect two major awards when Moose Martin won the Rookie of the Year award and Asdrubal Pelaez  won the Padres first Cy Young with a 23-5, and a 2.65 ERA. Martin followed up his Rookie of the Year award with a Cy Young of his own in season 21. The Padres will collect another Cy Young award in season 23 when Chris Breen won the hardware.  Pelaez would win his second and third Cy Young Awards in seasons 24 and 26. Che-Hsuan Suzuki would win the clubs third rookie of the year award in season 26.

The Padres have one plaque r in the sacred hall, Closer Skeeter Brown was elected to the Hall of Fame in season 16 after a 18 year major league career in which he retired has the all-time save leader (525) in Major League Baseball. Skeeter Brown won the Fireman of the Year award in season 13 and he also appeared in seven all-star games. He won a World Series with the Padres In season 13 and has an all-time postseason record of 38 games pitched, 29 saves, 226 OVA, 0.99 Whip, and a 2.41 ERA. 
Are Padres a dynasty? According to an all-time baseball historian, your truly,.. that will be a big-old YES!

Note: We made several attempts to contact Padres management and ownership regarding this article and was denied access. We were told jgarron was meeting with his attorneys concerning an episode in which he punched the Padres equipment manager in a Toronto restaurant. The incident occurred when an argument escalated over the last dinner roll. According to several bystanders the owner threw a left-hand hook, an overhand right, then an upper cut, landing directly on the 5’1” managers jaw which resulted in the little guy falling face first onto the restaurants floor and the owner breaking his right hand.
