2. San Diego Padres
Seeing Tim Anderson on the San Diego Padres would be awful.
The San Diego Padres have put their best foot forward when it comes to winning over the years. It hasn't worked out all that well for them to date but you know they are still going to try and win again in 2024.
They have Xander Bogaerts playing shortstop and Manny Machado playing third base which is an amazing duo on the left side of the infield. Machado can also be the DH with Ha-Seong Kim in the mix as well.
These moves have pushed Fernando Tatis Jr. to the outfield and he was incredible in that role. With all of this, they could use an upgrade at second base. Tim Anderson might be someone that they target this off-season.
That would be smart for them but incredibly painful for White Sox fans. Of course, the White Sox traded Tatis Jr. to the Padres in exchange for James Shields and that was terrible. They also were beaten out for Manny Machado by the Padres.
Seeing Anderson join those guys there in sunny southern California would be painful in every way. Hopefully, he avoids going there.
