The breakout San Diego Padres seem to really be embracing their role as troublemakers after the outrage sparked by Fernando Tatis Jr.'s grand slam against the Texas Rangers. That's been especially true of the fan base.

In Monday's matchup with the Houston Astros, who even the most mild-mannered fanbases have been railing against this year following the cheating scandal that enveloped them this offseason, a couple of Padres fans came up with a great way to up their heckling game.

Who said that empty stadiums mean players don't have to hear from the fans? On a nearby balcony, two Padres fans used a megaphone to make sure the Astros could hear exactly what they had to say about Monday's win.

Talk about a great view to have, especially in a season in which you can't attend any of the games in person. And these fans are clearly making the most of that prime real estate.

The Padres' breakout has been one of the most fun stories of the young 2020 MLB season, and fans in San Diego have to be loving this after finishing with a losing record in 11 of the last 12 seasons.

FanDuel Sportsbook gives the Padres the 11th-best odds to win the World Series in 2020, at +3000.
