Bud Black Signs Extension

Bud Black will be in San Diego for three more years and it is a great thing. But besides the good news, I think it is important to acknowledge that Jed Hoyer, the first year Padres GM, has been able to work well with a manager that he didn’t hire. Instead of coming and cleaning house, he has been able to successfully curb his ego and make the transition as smooth as possible.

"This news comes at a time when the team is playing well, but my faith in Bud goes far beyond wins and losses,'' general manager Jed Hoyer told "He and his staff are exceptionally well prepared, he embraces the challenge of teaching young players and, most importantly, the players compete for him every night.''

Good job, Jed!
