A glimpse into the future

The September call-ups give a team the chance to look at their future prospects, and possibly their future team. The Padres are looking to compete next year in Petco Park, and many players are fighting for their jobs. An impressive performance in September could land someone an opening day roster spot in 2004, while one bad month could have a player packing their bags.
