Five Players That Need To Step Up for the San Diego Padres in 2010

The San Diego Padres come in to the 2010 season with a few new faces but a lot more familiar ones that have returned to the team for this upcoming season.

The biggest question just days before the team reports to their spring complex in Peoria, AZ is, who the Padres need big seasons from in order to contend in the NL West.

With Jake Peavy no longer a member of the San Diego Padres after being traded to the White Sox prior to July's trade deadline, a new ace will need to emerge to lead this team.

Kevin Kouzmanoff is also no longer a Padre having been traded to the bay area as a new member of the Oakland A's. It means there will be a new fixture at third base when the season opens in just a few short months.

What else do the Padres need to contend? These are the five biggest names that need to have big years for San Diego to keep them in the race all season long.
