You know what...the Padres played some good ball with that young line-up towards the end of the season and I think they were only 2 players away from contending for a Pennant, until I read this. WTF??
If this happens, I hope Adrian goes to a contender and gets a WS trophy, he has been a pretty good sport playing for a joke of an organization. Some team is going to get a selfless TEAM player.
Adrian= 4 million and is an All Star
Konerko= 11 million and is at the end of his career.
Makes all the sense in the world.
There's been rumors back east he is going to the Red Sox. Great for him! Imagine the numbers he will put up at Fenway! Plus taking the gold glove away from Teixeira would be waaay cool! I hate to see him go but things aint lookin too good here in Padresville. Oh and Clay Bucholtz and/or their 100mph guy Daniel Bard could be in the deal!
Padres can't keep good/great players for a long time....surprised Gwynn was here for as long as he was. I wish the SD native the best if he does ship to another team. Freakin Padres
If you look at the proposed deal, Konerko goes to the Angels, and the Padres just get prospects. It would be another shaft job.
I hate prospects...they almost never work out for us. We have something in Adrian, and I think we should keep him.
Good thing I didn't put that paper bag away quite yet.
I'm not a Padre fan but I'd hate to see Adrian leave the Padres. He's the type of player you build a lineup around and trading him while he's still relatively cheap would be silly.
i love my padres and will always love my padres but theyre making it harder to like them and go 2 their games when you know that theyre going 2 lose. this season i went 2 more angel games than padre games. i went 2 1 padre game this season...it was in anaheim against the angels. i would b embarassed if i were a past padre such as Gwynn Klesko Nevin Hoffman and others.this was a team that would contend and reach the playoffs and now theyre a guaranteed win for opponents.
