He said to reporters that the roster was so stacked, from top to bottom, it was unbelievable.
“When they beat the Dodgers here it was great to see how excited the fans were during the playoffs. It was also fun to watch on TV.
Although the Padres were not eligible for the wild card, they still looked like a contender in the playoffs.
They eliminated the Mets as well as the Dodgers before falling against the Phillies in NLCS. Bogaerts now joins a team that has realistic hopes of reaching the finals World Series.
The Padres already had Manny Machado and Fernando Tatis Jr. in the infield, while Juan Soto was in the outfield.

Bogaerts is a shortstop or third base player, but it’s not clear where he will play in San Diego.
The 30-year old should improve a roster which won 89 games last regular-season.
Bogaerts is an.292 hitter who was able to hit 15 home runs in his career last season.
