Whenever I get discouraged and want to quit something, I remember the words of my then 3 year-old after she puked carrots all over the living room floor: "I'm gonna need more carrots."
Padres acquired Mike Clevinger, Yu Darvish, and Blake Snell and still enter the 2021 season with the most top-100 prospects in the league (7), per @BaseballAmerica
That is a sentence that makes zero sense. Incredible.
Joe Musgrove said he thought chances were slim that he'd go to Padres after SD got Darvish and Snell earlier this offseason. "To be able to play in my hometown at a time when the Padres arguably have never been better, it's really exciting."
Padres 2021 Projected Starting Rotation:
▫️ Blake Snell
▫️ Yu Darvish
▫️ Dinelson Lamet
▫️ Chris Paddack
▫️ Joe Musgrove
The Padres' opening-day rotation is likely set. In some order:
Adrian Morejon and Ryan Weathers could now be candidates for the opening-day bullpen. MacKenzie Gore could be the No. 1 at El Paso or San Antonio.
Just a reminder…the #Padres traded for Yu Darvish, Blake Snell, Mike Clevinger and now Joe Musgrove without giving up top prospects Mackenzie Gore, Adams Morejon, Ryan Weathers, C.J. Abrams, Luis Campusano, or Robert Hassel…..not sure how that’s possible but #Impressive !!
The #Padres pounce again and grab #Pirates ace Joe Musgrove, as @JeffPassan
reports. Musgrove had already been informed of the trade. He is the third ace acquired by Padres joining Yu Darvish and Blake Snell.
It's a good time to be a @Padres
The organization has...
✅ Acquired Blake Snell
✅ Acquired Yu Darvish
✅ Retained 6 of its top 7 prospects doing so
And now has 7 Top 💯 prospects, the most of any organization in baseball.

"It's not going to fall on any one guy," A.J. Preller said last month. "What we've tried to create is a staff that's not just five deep, but we want to look up and be eight, nine, 10 deep of Major League starters." https://t.co/xOnmB67xRz

The #Padres have now landed Austin Nola, Mike Clevinger, Blake Snell, Yu Darvish and Joe Musgrove while still having the most top prospects (7) in @BaseballAmerica
's top 100. That should be impossible!
A.J. Preller #Padres #RockStar trades quantity of mid-level type prospects to acquire another solid starer to fit in their starting rotation behind Darvish, Snell, Lamet and Paddack. The trade allows Gore more time to develop. The trade gives Padres rotation depth & solid IP MGT
The Padres rotation now consists of Snell, Darvish, Lamet, Musgrove and Paddack wow.
San fucking Diego Padres. WOW!
Just because it’s fun to dream...
1. Trevor Bauer
2. Yu Darvish
3. Blake Snell

Pads have traded for Clevenger Darvish Musgrove and Snell in the past 5 months...how the FUCK is that possible
Still in the #Padres system after the club traded for literally Blake Snell, Yu Darvish, Mike Clevinger and Joe Musgrove since the start of the 2020 season:
Robert Hassell III
"oh yeah, we also acquired blake snell" was not a thought i expected to have this offseason, but somehow we've acquired so much talent that it is hard to even remember all of the pieces. even if they've won a cy young award.
The Padres are going to destroy Snell’s arm like Lamet and Clevinger, aren’t they?
IMO the mid range shouldn't be removed but it's more about what type of shots you want your role players taking. I dont mind superstars taking contested mid range jumpers. I don't want someone like Tony Snell tryna hit those types of shots. That's not his role. https://t.co/4eUMJ3V19P
