Now, with strong rumors being tossed around concerning Oliver Perez, Xavier Nady and Kevin Jarvis for Brian Giles and his Pirate appointed attachment Jason Kendall, Friar Fans are plagued with questions about our promised "future". Are we going to get rid of another imminent All Star?
Don't get me wrong, having Giles in the line up next to Nevin could be a big step towards a ring. But what about the "future" we Friar Faithful have been promised for an eternity? What will happen if the future is an 80's born Tijuana Left Hander who was on our mound as a Padre and then traded to be another town's hero?

All Padre Loyalists have screamed about the full All-Star team that has been given away by our MLB representatives. The Sheffield's, Brown's, Smith's, Mcgriff's, tons of good ones made trips through San Diego and were sent away to become team commanders for other managers. It's time for Towers to let us keep our homegrown competitors and start the future he has promised. Going to Petco with an unusual and new, "Team of the Future" would be a good way to start off bad.
