Byrnes officially named GM

Today Jeff Moorad officially welcomed Josh Byrnes as executive vice president/general manager. Byrnes isn’t exactly new to the organization. He was added to Jed Hoyer’s staff last year as senior vice president of baseball operations and helped establish the system that is in place right now. Here is a look at today’s news conference:

  1. fausto (long time PADRE FAN

    They just come for ADRIAN GONZALEZ, all plan before he arrive, now he goes to CHICAGO get another player for BOSTON, LETS BOYCOTTT the padrtes, until they put some money on the team, we are not 2nd class fans

  2. Sisao Tresed

    OH GOOD, maybe he’ll realize that you can’t fill seats and get fans interested in paying lots of money when you basically have a Triple A team that trades and sells players like stock options. By the time I develop a liking for a player and buy a new shirt with his name on it…he’s usually gone. NOTE to BYRNES: We would rather have a dependable .500 team than a “shoot for the stars” team that’s dealing their best players to contenders by August!
