Before you say it's a typo. Before you laugh. Before you think, no this isn't San Diego they're talking about you better look up and see what AJ Preller has done in less than 2 weeks. It's nothing short of exciting !
"Kemp wasn't the only one treading in unchartered waters Friday, as the Padres -- who haven't advanced to the playoffs since 2006 and haven't been very relevant since -- continued a frenzied and unusually bountiful offseason with a bevy of notable roster moves, squeezed into a 24-hour window.It will be very hard for anyone to dispute that the San Diego Padres, as of right now, are contenders right out of the gate... And Preller might not be done this off season !
How busy have the Padres and Preller, hired in August to remake the team, been? In a 24-hour period, the team added, most notably: Kemp, Braves outfielder Justin Upton and Rays outfielder Wil Myers, giving them a collection of former All-Stars and a Rookie of the Year to fill what was a barren lineup.
"It's getting stacked," Kemp said of the lineup."
Stay Tuned !!
