The Padres have called a press conference for tomorrow to announce the firing of General Manager Kevin Towers.
According to Corey Brock on Twitter,
@ FollowThePadres The #Padres will have a press conference on Saturday with CEO Jeff Moorad. No reference to Towers in the press advisory. Still not officialand earlier Brock said on Twitter,
@ FollowThePadres No official announcement from the team yet, but #Padres GM Kevin Towers is out. He was the longest tenured GM in the Major Leagues. #MLBAfter spending 14 seasons with the Padres, Towers was the longest tenured front office person in baseball. He presided over the winningest stretch in Padres franchise history.
During Towers tenure with the team, the Padres won four NL West titles and reached the 1998 World Series.
Not many GM's that can say they have four division titles and a World Series appearance on a low - mid revenue team. KT will be missed.
I am certain that he will not be unemployed long.
