Padres acquired LHPs Drew Pomeranz and Jose Torres and a player to be named later or cash considerations from the Athletics for 1B Yonder Alonso and LHP Marc Rzepczynski.

Padres GM A.J. Preller suspended 30 days after the team hid medical records from the rest of MLB.

The Giants and the Dodgers already have huge financial advantages, but they are gonna rule the NL West for YEARS because the Dbacks are supremely dysfunctional, the Rockies are a perennial mess, and the Padres seem to be a bit of an organization disaster as well, though perhaps less so than the other two.

Best line I've heard about this:

"I just thought of what the punishment should be. The Padres should be forced to hire Stewart and LaRussa from the DBacks."

A.J. Preller is the Padres' general manager and oversees baseball operations for the franchise. He previously worked for the Rangers and, when Preller was overseeing their international operations in 2010, he was suspended for violations of baseball rules regarding signings.


Clearly Preller is having issues with "coloring outside the lines"

I think he's finished as a GM, but probably can still get work as a scout, as that was his core competency.

I shall achieve in time—
To let the punishment fit the crime,
The punishment fit the crime;
And make each prisoner pent
Unwillingly represent
A source of innocent merriment,
Of innocent merriment!

Padres have done something very interesting that we haven't paid attention to.
Quote:
Heading into 2016, ESPN.com senior baseball writer Keith Law ranked the Padres’ farm system 20th in baseball. Now, they’ve rocketed to third on Law’s list.

In the last eight months, the Padres have signed 45 players from outside the United States: 15 from Venezuela, 14 from the Dominican, six each from Cuba and Mexico, three from Colombia and one from Taiwan. Organization-wide, there are 65 native Dominicans under contract alone.

“It’s the speed at which it’s been done and the pace at which it’s happened,” Geaney said. “Even if it was over a two-year period, it would be stark and striking.”

Padres Special Assistant Moises Alou played 17 seasons for seven big-league teams. The six-time All Star and career .303 hitter finished third in National League MVP voting twice.

Alou, a Dominican native, gazed at the facility that GM Preller labeled “the Taj Mahal” of the country’s academies and insisted a flicker is poised to be fanned into long-term flame.

“There’s no doubt in my mind,” Alou said, “that we’ve got something going on right here.”
