San Diego Padres
The problem with the Padres is that their owners don’t care about winning games. They run the franchise in the most cynical way possible because they don’t want to lose money. This makes sense from a business perspective but it’s a nightmare for their long-suffering fans (via Bleacher Report).
If they spend a lot of money on top players they’ll lose revenue. That’s because they have low TV ratings and a miserable attendance record. Historically, they don’t want to compete with the Dodgers or the Angels because they don’t have the means. But this also means that they’re an embarrassment to baseball.
