Tony Gwynn excelled on a struggling squad

Gwynn hit .370 in 1987, leading the major leagues with his best average in a season at that point in his career. He also led the majors with 218 hits, made the All-Star team and won both a Silver Slugger and Gold Glove that season... in which the Padres finished an NL-worst 65-97. Great players on bad teams
