Whaaaaaat? Did I miss a joke?If they don't go Cora, here's a list of sitting GM's I'd like them to go after.
Make AJ Preller say no.
Not only did he scam the Red Sox by sending falsified medicals in the Pomeranz deal, he is in the midst of squandering the prime years of an astonishing collection of young talent with his inability to build a team that makes any sense. He "wins" every other offseason, runs huge payrolls, trades prospects... but if the Sox finish over .500 this year, Bloom will have built as many .500+ teams in four years in Boston as Preller has in eight seasons in San Diego. Seriously: is there a more disappointing/chronically underperforming team than the Padres over the last decade?
The grass isn't always greener. The Padres aren't quite the Angels, but they're pretty close.
