Well, there goes the World Series trophy this year, guys!:
Former Padres general manager Kevin Towers has decided to take a post with the Yankees according to former Padres beat writer Tom Krasovic, who now works for Fanhouse.
Towers is close friends with both Brian Cashman and Theo Epstein and industry speculation was that he would spend the coming season working for either the Yankees or Red Sox before trying to again become a GM.
Fine, Mr. Towers. Then the Sox will just have to destroy you and your pinstripes this year. That's what you get for saying no to a megapower for a mega-erpower...
