The San Diego Padres are trying to build a team to compete, and they took their first steps this year. The Padres made huge strides when they signed starting pitcher Josh Johnson to a multi-year deal. They also went out and signed relief pitcher Joaquin Benoit. The Padres also return favorites Chase Headley and Jedd Gyorko. They shouldn't be in much contention this year, but look out for the Padres in years to come.
