The Morning Friar - 3/3/11

Gonzalez had another outstanding season, yet at the end of the year it became obvious the organization would not be able to sign him. So he was shipped to Boston in exchange for 3 of the Red Sox Top 6 prospects (including No. 1 prospect Casey Kelly). But he wasn’t the only player to find a new home, as three-quarters of the infield was turned over.

With 36 new players in spring training camp this year, Padres manager Bud Black knows it will take a while for things to mesh.

“With so many new guys, we have to find our identity,” Black said Wednesday morning

The trap-door ending to the 2010 regular season was hard to swallow, sure.

Will Adrian Gonzalez be missed? Are you kidding?

But does any of that matter? If you are a San Diego Padre in Year 1 A.G., only to a degree
