It’s official, Josh Brynes has taken over as GM for the San Diego Padres because Jed Hoyer dashed for greener pastures with the Chicago Cubs. I think this is a good move for the Padres because Brynes has proven to be successful as a GM. Unfortunately, his biggest mistakes were magnified in a smaller market with the Diamondbacks and ultimately cost him his job.
Josh Byrnes should be able to start to turn around a franchise that once was a top of the national league. It’ll be interesting to see how Byrnes turns the team around with a poor payroll, but he’s very capable of doing so. The Padres have a very good baseball man running the shit now.
