Anybody pick Padres GM Josh Byrnes ????


from cbssports.com:


Josh Byrnes is out as GM of the Padres


The San Diego Padres have decided to make a change toward the top of the organization, as executive vice president/general manager Josh Byrnes has been relieved of his duties, the club announced in a press release Sunday.

"This ownership group is committed to fielding a team that consistently competes for postseason play," Padres president and CEO Mike Dee said in a statement. "Thus far this season, the results on the field have been mixed at best and clearly have not lived up to expectations. After a lengthy evaluation of every facet of our baseball operations, we have decided to make this change today."

“The search for a new General Manager begins immediately,” Dee said. “We are looking for someone who can define, direct and lead this franchise's baseball philosophy for years to come.”

Until the GM job is filled, senior vice president Omar Minaya and assistant GMs A.J. Hinch and Fred Uhlman Jr. are in charge.

Byrnes took over as GM of the Padres in October of 2011 when then-GM Jed Hoyer left for the position of GM with the Cubs. Prior to that, Byrnes had beeen VP of baseball operations for the Padres for a year. He was previously the GM of the Diamondbacks, before being fired in 2010.

The Padres entered Sunday with a 32-43 record, 12.5 games out in the NL West. The Padres went exactly 76-86 in each of the previous two seasons.

Byrnes' two highest-profile moves during his tenure in San Diego were trades. He sentAnthony Rizzo to the Cubs in exchange for Andrew Cashner and also traded Mat Latos to the Reds for Yonder Alonso, Yasmani Grandal, Brad Boxberger and Edinson Volquez.

The Jason Kidd thing is bizarre. If he is traded to the Bucks, I don't think he counts. Sucks for me as I have him as my 9 point pick.

It's very bizarre.....but since the Celtics have Brooklyn's 1st round picks in 2016, 2017 ( right to switch ) and 2018 I have no problem with the Nets imploding.

Ron Washington just resigned as the Manager of the Texas Rangers. Not sure if anyone had him or if a resignation even counts.

Resignation doesn't count. Nobody had him anyway.

I didn't have him.

lobo, since we need someone to take this over until the end of the year, do you want to look after it?

If it's OK with Beej, I'll give it a shot until the end of the year. In November, we'll have to decide if we want to continue it the pool & find someone who wants to run it full time.

As for Gardenhire, if no one had him, I'll award myself 11 points. Please let me know if
you picked someone  who gets fired. I'm not gonna go thru everyone's list everytime someone gets the axe.
