Realistically, they need to trade him.   It'd be better for the franchise in the long term.

Ummm Ooookay.... why??  We are already trading (trying to trade) Peavy!!  You must be a Dodger or a D-backs fan.


Because he has actual *value*, unlike Peavy.   He's under contract for 2 more years, with a club option for 2011 at a ridiculous $5.5 million.  That's a huge value that teams would trip over each other to try to pick up.  They're not winning the World Series in 2009 or 2010-- so they'd be faced with, at best, presuming *everything* broke just right, a young contending team in Gonzales' contract year of 2011;  do you really expect that the franchise would put up a $200-220 million contract for him, or gut that possible contender?

I like the Padres.  I'm generally indifferent to the NL West, except the Dodgers, who I hope lose 162 games.

One player already on the roster, though, isn't going to solve all of their glaring needs.  Branch Rickey once told Hall of Famer Ralph Kiner -- before trading him midseason -- "I can finish last without you."

The Padres' aren't going to be bringing in the 'final pieces' when they trade Peavy, to assemble a contender.  They have serious, serious needs, and are in rebuilding mode, despite what the NL West may try to encourage them to do.

Because Gonzales has become so entrenched at first, the Padres have moved one of their top prospects to a new position (LF), where he's struggling defensively, rather than opening up the MLB job at first.  Kyle Blanks can hit the ball an absolute ton, and can realistically be ready, if he's going to be  a piece of a contender, by 2011-- but he needs big league at-bats at his natural position.

Trading Peavy isn't going to be a huge value-trade for the Padres.  He's got a *lot* of innings for someone that is  27, has a fastball that's already in decline, benefits from PETCO, and is on the book for another 60 million over the next 3 years (with options)-- and a no-trade clause on top of all that, that will make finding the best deal secondary to finding the deal he will agree to.     Yes, they'll get a piece or two- but nothing like what they'd get for Gonzales.

During the offseason, an American League team purportedly offered 7 prospects and big leaguers (reports differ as to the split);  that's the kind of franchise overhauling deal a team needs to make, if they don't want to perpetually be chasing the Wild-Card berth from mid-July onward every year.

"Padres GM Towers has been fired"

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20091003/ap_on_sp_ba_ne/bbn_padres_towers_fired_2

Depsite cutting payroll significantly and fielding a very competitive team the last half of the season.  I would say the Padres owner has made a mistake.

I dunno.  They didn't get as much value for Peavy as they could have, and Towers turned down some serious offers for Adrian Gonzalez in the previous off-season that would have completely retooled the Padres franchise to be competitive in a year or two.    An AL exec reputedly offered a 9 player package, complete with 2 everyday regulars and 7 prospects.

Yes, he's a star, but the words of Branch Rickey to HOF'er  Ralph Kiner still apply-- "I can finish last without you."

good points...I just thought he accomplished the goals.  Shred payroll while improving.  But, I'm a Cubs fan so perhaps I'm a little "too okay" with losing.  :)

hey Padres fans, Rockies fan here. Just curious how bad  you think we are? Im thinking we are horrendous. We've already lost a series to the Astros, and  well, SD isnt supposed to be a great team either and you have already taken 1 of 1  from the series. Also,  how has bud black managed to keep a job  for so many years given his sub  .500 record?

thanks!

Bud Black is a great manager.  His record is more indicative of the pattern of ownership trading away every great young player for future prospects.  When those prospects become great they are traded away and the cycle goes on and on.  They are a farm team for the rest of MLB.

Anyone else see where Phil Mickelson has signed on to the Tony Gwynn effort to buy the Padres?

I didn't realize just how much money Phil had.  It's sort of mind boggling to think of a golfer not named TW with earnings of nearly $400 million.
