The cupboard ain’t bare in San Diego

Via MLB Trade Rumors, here’s a choice quote regarding the Padres’ front office situation:

Considering the current state of the Padres, it’s an easy guess that whomever CEO Jeff Moorad selects as the new GM will be lauding Towers’ efforts for years to come . . . the Padres’ new GM will walk into one of the most promising setups in baseball. The Padres have only $12 million in guaranteed money committed for 2010 after Towers unloaded Jake Peavy’s $56 million contract. The pitching staff was completely overhauled through the trades of Peavy and Scott Hairston and several other minor deals. The 40-man roster is loaded with affordable, controllable talent.

Wow, that is great. So can someone please explain to me why the architect of that got fired again?
