The only constant in life is change. The San Diego Padres and their fans are certainly finding this to be true after the heartbreaking end to their 2010 season.

Two months after the season-ending defeat to eventual-champion San Francisco on the season's final day, the Padres made the move most Friar fans saw as inevitable. Homegrown superstar Adrian Gonzalez was shipped away to Boston, and the future seemed uncertain.

However, it has become clear that the Padres front-office, led by general manager Jed Hoyer and owner Jeff Moorad, were spending no time wallowing in small-market self pity.

San Diego quickly got to work in re-shaping their lineup, which clearly needed attention after the latest in a line of seasons with poor offensive output.

So what should Padres fans expect this season? Well, for one thing, they can expect a litany of change. Of course, change doesn't have to be a bad thing.
