Padres were the most disappointing team in 2015

The San Diego Padres came into the 2015 MLB season as a team with high expectations after acquiring players like Matt Kemp, Justin Upton, James Shields, Craig Kimbrel, and Wil Myers this offseason. Yet, the Padres really underachieved this season by securing a 74-88 record with a loss to the Dodgers on Sunday. The main reason that I consider the Padres to be the most disappointing MLB team is because of how much money they are paying those players and yet they didn’t provide very good results. Now, San Diego will have to find a new manager after firing Bud Black midseason and the team will be stuck with big contracts for a few years and very few talented prospects left in their minor league system. Things didn’t quite work out for the Padres this year, but if they find the right manager then maybe things will turn around for them.
