The role of Grumpy Phil Nevin is now being played by Zach Cozart.

The Galvis trade will remain mind-boggling, regardless of what the respective players do. It really worries me that Preller may have thought this team had a chance in 2018.

The problem with Headley was paying 13M for Mitchell, who topped the Most Likely to be DFAd list. Yeah, it's good that 13M isn't a crippling hit to the Padres anymore. It's bad that Preller, or someone he listens to, thought that Mitchell was worth it. You can still do a lot with 13M.
