Let’s see. In the past 24 hours, the Padres…
- finalized their trade for Matt Kemp;
- finalized their deal for Wil Myers;
- acquired All-Star catcher Derek Norris from Oakland;
- sent catcher Ryan Hanigan to Boston for third baseman Will Middlebrooks;
- are close to signing backup catcher David Ross.
The question is no longer, does A.J. Preller sleep. We all know the answer to that. The real question is, will he give the bloggers covering the Padres a chance to sleep?
That’s not a complaint, mind you.
At this point, I am not going to give a full evaluation of what’s going on in San Diego, since Preller is clearly not done yet. Hopefully, that will come in the next few days.
But for now, take cheer, Padre fans. Your team is relevant again.
