Joe Smith is not a free-agent-to-be. He signed a 3-year contract with the Angels this past off-season.

Woof. I must've meant Jason Grilli when I typed that. Sorry about that. We'll get it fixed.

I would argue SD has not been jettisoning GM's at some strange clip. You had Towers booted after one of the longest tenures in baseball with a change in ownership. Hoyer seemed fine but then he jumped ship to join the Cubs, so they put in Byrnes who had a history with then owner Moorad. Moorad got shoved aside and new owners came in, so this is now "their" hire.

I would say there has been a lack of consistency in ownership which affected the GM's. But that seems settled for now. Good luck to Preller. This whole "we will compete by development" when that is what their richer competitors are doing as well is a tough task, with very little margin for error. Strike that: no margin for error or bad luck.
