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 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.
