In the last week of 2020, the San Diego Padres have made some big moves to challenge the Dodgers in the NLD West. Blake Snell was traded from Tampa Bay for Luis Patino, Francisco Mejia, Blake Hunt and Cole Wilcox, Dennis Lin.
Of course, this is great for Padres fans, but one fan in particular isn't so happy. A Twitter user by the name of Padre Bob decided to go out to buy his first Padres jersey ever. The problem was, that player (Luis Patino) is going to be sent away in that trade for Blake Snell.
Snell had a 3.24 ERA and 11.3 K/9 last season in a bounce-back campaign atop the Rays rotation. He'll move to the top of the Padres' rotation and could be allowed to go deeper into games. Snell never pitched into the seventh inning last season, including infamously being pulled after 5.1 innings with a lead in Game 6 of the World Series.
