Please follow up reports about Garrett Richards. Very disconcerting.
Well, it is fun to watch the kids grow as the AAAA Petco Park Padres flounder.
As we pick up more prospects, other teams, wanting to win, look for proven major league players. Say, the Astros.
When was the last time we traded prospects for an MLB player?
These kids come up and can’t make it in the majors.
Look how many failures went from the minors to the majors, couldn’t cut it, then back to the minors. Time to cut the dead wood. Start with urias. Then Margevicius. Pare down the 40 man roster. Maybe they can go to an organization that can develop players rather than ruin them.
Hard to compare the Astros to the Padres when the Astros are putting the finishing touches on a championship caliber team, (which the built through the draft and International signings while bottoming out in the standings), and the Padres are still trying to get there.
I am sure the reason Preller and Co. and holding onto all of these prospects is so that they have the prospect capital to make a deal when this team is ready to compete. There is no sense making a trade just for the sake of making a trade. If the Padres are within reach of the post season in the next couple of years and Preller and Co. do not pull the trigger, then and only then would be the time to complain about not dealing prospects.
