    It's a tough choice between Dave "Winny" Winfield and Tony Gwynn, Sr. The two had great seasons in San Diego. Both of their numbers have been retired by the Pads, and they both played RF.

    trevor hoffman- he is second or third on the all time saves list. He is a freak in the best way possible.

    Dave Winfield, Tony Gwynn and Trevor Hoffman are the obvious choices here....but I like how Adrian Gonzalez approaches the game.

    I think Adrian Gonzalez looks like he is something special. My favorite was the junk balling Randy Smith. What do you know about your 3B?

    For me it's obvious, nobody resembles the San Diego Padres than Mr. Padre himself, Tony Gwynn.

    When I was a kid growing up in the 1980s, my favorite Padre was Steve Garvey. My favorite Padre pitcher then was Goose Gossage (and I was thrilled in 1984 when my 2 favorites lead the Padres over the Cubs and into the World Series that year). Last season, my favorite was the old Cardinals 2006 NLCS MVP Jeff Suppan. Of course, these days it has to be Chase Headley as the best Padre!

    "current best" in 2006. Tony Gwynn was the best Padre.
