The Padres built their team around the stadium they play in. Its a huge ball park and pitchers tend to thrive in that atmosphere. Moving in the fences wouldnt exactly be a bad thing seeing as I have seen some bombs one hop the wall there.
However even if they move the walls in they will need to build a better offensive ball club. Their lineup may be the worst in baseball. Heck if you think about it, that stadium is the only reason the Pads are successful at all.
