The Padres begin the season against the National League West with three-game road series against the Los Angeles Dodgers and a seven game home-stand with a four game series against the San Francisco Giants and a three game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The Padres will face the American League West next season in interleague play.
Unforutntley for Padres fans and just baseball fans in general, Mike Trout and the Los Angeles Angels will not be coming down to San Diego. The Padres will host the Houston Astros, Oakland A’s, Seattle Mariners and Texas Rangers.

Friars on Base
Why Major League Baseball decided to take away the opportunity for Padres fans to see arguably the best player in baseball in Mike Trout…is beyond me. Oh wait that’s right…..we have to have our home and home series with our “natural rivals” in the Seattle Mariners. Why the Mariners are our “natural rival” over a team from our state in the Los Angeles Angels makes no sense to me….but that’s Bud Selig’s logic for you.
The Padres will also play 25 of their final 28 games against the National League West. So if the Padres are able to make improvements to the roster this off-season and play at least .500 baseball heading into September next year, maybe they will have an opportunity to compete for a playoff spot.
It’s honestly not impossible, if the Padres record was at or near .500 right now they would be right there with the Pirates, Brewers, Braves and even the Marlins for the second wild-card. Heck if the Padres would’ve won their last 6 games instead of losing them, they would’ve been actually believe it or not in serious contention for the second wild-card.
