All-Time team: Tony, Trevor Time



The pennant-winning 1998 Padres lead the All-Time team with three selections: Kevin Brown, Greg Vaughn and Trevor Hoffman. The 1996 division winners and the 1978 team — the first with a winning record — had two each. The 1984 Padres, who lost to the Tigers in the World Series, were shut out.
