Preller stuns, inspires Padres with clubhouse speech - The San Diego Union-Tribune

Do the Padres have enough offense and pitching to compete for a Wild Card spot?

“It showed he believes in every single person he put in this clubhouse,” reliever Craig Stammen said. “We just didn’t get here randomly. Sometimes you feel that way, especially the last couple years where we’re just rebuilding and rebuilding. You look around and say, ‘Well, why is everybody here? Why is Craig Stammen in the locker room? Was it because they need somebody on the team? Did they just need to fill a roster spot?’ But him talking (Friday) showed he legitimately put effort into putting every single one of us in this clubhouse for a reason.”

What? No one wants to talk Padres?

I don't expect them to make the playoffs this year. The Dodgers are pretty much a lock to win the division.

They barely won it last year, and this year there might be even less Kershaw (well, there almost certainly will be less; there might be none). They have enough depth that they're the favorites, but are the Rockies any worse than they were last year?
