Jeff Moorad interested in bringing Bob Melvin to the Padres


Looks to be a done deal:
Quote:
SAN DIEGO -- Bob Melvin, let go last month as the manager of the Arizona Diamondbacks, will accept an unspecified position with the Padres, possibly as soon as Wednesday.

Melvin was in San Diego on Monday and Tuesday meeting with Padres team officials, including general manager Kevin Towers.

It's not known if Melvin -- relieved of his duties May 8 after spending the past four-plus seasons in Arizona -- will be an advisor to Towers or a consultant.

Melvin could be in line for a job perhaps as a roving consultant for the team's minor league system.


Since when is there a Proven Veteran Presence(TM) in the minors?

Hairston Traded to Athletics

Quote:
The Padres sold high on Hairston -- who was hitting .299 with 10 home runs and 29 RBIs -- because, as general manager Kevin Towers said afterward inside an empty clubhouse, "we're looking for some good arms."

"That's the one thing we lack in our system is pitching depth," Towers said, noting the lack of higher-level arms in the system. "We really didn't want to give up Scotty. But for us, this is a move looking beyond this year."

That wasn't anything Hairston wanted to hear. He choked up when talking to reporters, especially when asked about his time in San Diego that began, ironically, in another July trade, this time in 2007 when he was acquired from the D-backs.

Edgar Gonzalez hit in head, hospitalized

Quote:
Gonzalez immediately fell to the ground clutching his head after he was hit by Jason Hammel's 93 mph fastball near the left ear hole on his batting helmet. After several minutes, Gonzalez was helped to a cart by the team's two trainers and driven off the field.

Manager Bud Black said he was told by the trainers on the field that Gonzalez was "conscious, he was lucid and he knew what happened. But he was extremely dizzy and his ears were ringing."

Black said Gonzalez had gone to a hospital for tests but the results would not be known until Sunday.


Best wishes to Edgar. Let's hope it's not serious and that it didn't cause any long-term issues.

Mat Latos was called up and will be starting today

Josh Fields was the roster casualty.

Also something I just found out about today, that Sean Gallagher was the player to be named in the deal.

At least we got Leo Rosales though...

A bigger disaster are the Padres as a result of their ownership mess, which was finally resolved in part when Jeff Moorad was named the new chief executive officer. John Moores is still in the picture as chairman but will gradually go away. When Moorad finally gets his entire group in, hes not expected to be a deep-pockets owner, either. With not much going on in their farm system, the Padres can likely expect a few more years of doormat status, but no worries, their new promotion of Sunday breakfast on the field at Petco Park should keep the fans coming, right?

Mat Latos and Aaron Poreda are going to be a deadly 1-2 punch in a couple of years. Kyle Blanks is also starting to swing well at the major league level. The Padres system is not one that's teeming with prospects like the previously named BabyBacks, but you have to respect the job the FO is doing over there on the rebuilding process. Saving more than a bit of money by spending an astronomically low amount on salary while building up a solid store of young guys who might not be the most coveted out there, but seem to be guys who will be able to contribute a fair amount at the Major League level.

It will be interesting to watch from here on out, especially with the club positioned in such a way that if Strasburg fails to sign with the Nationals, they would be able to scoop up the SD native. Now a rotation of Latos - Poreda - Strasburg - veteran Chris Young - Correia/Gaudin/etc seems just downright intimidating.

Not to mention if Sean Gallagher can recover from his injury, and Clayton Richard is probably a better option going forward than Correia or Gaudin anyways.

Of course, of course. Sean Gallagher's a big wild card right now, though; I still think he has the potential to be the #2 or #3 starter most projected him out to be, there's just a large risk he won't get there right now.

Oh, and I'm a big Richard fan, but I've always had a soft spot for Chad Gaudin. Don't ask me why, but he's one of those guys I've always really wanted to see succeed, and over his last 8 or so starts, minus I think one in the middle somewhere, he's been stellar for the Pads.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I assume your fanboyishness stems from that waterfall of beard he has going on lately.

Nope. Dates back to his Oakland days.

Yup. Was one of the four arms in the Peavy trade. He's got solid mid-rotation potential, especially pitching in Petco.

Padres ax Kevin Towers. Paul DePodesta rumored to be the front runner as his replacement.

SAN DIEGO -- Kevin Towers, the longest-tenured general manager in the major leagues, has been fired by the San Diego Padres, sources confirmed Friday night to ESPN The Magazine senior writer Buster Olney.

The Padres said CEO Jeff Moorad will address the media Saturday afternoon. Moorad didn't return a phone call, e-mail and text message seeking comment from The Associated Press.

Towers, in his 14th season as Padres GM, told the AP in an e-mail that he couldn't comment on his situation. He is under contract through next season at approximately $2 million.

Kevin Towers, in his 14th season as the Padres' general manager, is under contract through next season at approximately $2 million.

Under Towers, the Padres won four NL West titles and reached the 1998 World Series, where they were swept by the Yankees.

The Padres are 74-85. Coming off a 99-loss season in 2008, they have rebounded with a strong final two months, thanks in part to moves by Towers. Since July 28, they are 36-23, fourth-best in the major leagues in that span.

Classic Moorad. Sign a competent GM then force him to sign terrible players.

To be fair, JM also called Russ Ortiz a proven winner.

Also, that is the most annoying background ever.
