Interesting comments that AJ obtained much better prospects from the Red Sox than he gave up to the Braves.

Yes, in regards to the Kimbrel trade it seems like every "expert" thinks the Padres got a great return. Of course they still need to keep developing those players and get them to the majors so we shall see how it plays out.

Padres trade Yonder Alonso and Marc Rzepczynski to A's for Drew Pomeranz, Jose Torres and PTBNL.

Both Alonso and Rep were not expected to be tendered by Padres by Wed deadline.

Padres traded Jedd Gyorko and cash to the Cardinals for CF Jon Jay.

Jon Jay is on the last year of his deal and is owed $6.225M next season. Jay is a good defensive outfielder and was really good between 2010-2014, hitting .297 or above in 4 of those 5 seasons. However, in 2015 Jay had a terrible injury plagued year hitting .210 playing in only 79 games.

Gyorko signed a fairly big contract and was still owed $29M through 2019. He never lived up to his contract as he struggled to hit.

This trade seems to be mostly about getting out from under Gyorko's contract.

John Jay. Great statesman. Great batsman.

Padres trade Casey Kelly (SP) and Ricardo Rodriguez (C) to the Braves for Christian Bethancourt (C).

Bethancourt is 24 and was a top 100 overall prospect in 2014 but has struggled in his limited time in the majors. In 269 total ML at bats he has hit .219/.245/.527. But in AAA this past season he hit .327/.359/.480 in 202 at bats.

Casey Kelly is 26 and was also once a top 100 prospect that has also struggled and had Tommy John surgery.

Rodriguez is only 17 and was a international signing.

It's nice to see the Pads trying to at least make a winning team. If we can keep the core players intact, I have a feeling a 500+ season will be in the making.

and thanks for getting rid of Kimbrel. That guy was a huge liability. Saw his opener against the Pirates. It was like he was giving the game away.

Padres signed a relief pitcher today.

Carlos Villanueva for one year $1.5M.

In 2015 he had a 2.95 ERA and 55/21 K/BB ratio in 61 innings.

Padres signed SS Alexei Ramirez to a 1 year deal today. I guess they were unable to reach a deal with Desmond. Ramirez is a upgrade from last year (defense and offense) and one year deal has little risk but does not significantly improve the batting order.
