    My Padres make a change as Buddy Black is out as manager...

    The San Diego Padres announced Monday that manager Bud Black has been relieved of his duties.
    The club will immediately begin the formal search for an Interim Manager for the remainder of the 2015 season. Until that process has concluded, Bench Coach Dave Roberts will serve as the Manager beginning with tonight's game against Oakland.


    General Manager A.J. Preller will be available for the media at approximately 3:30 p.m. in the Padres dugout.

    Time for a change. I believe losing the recent Dodgers series was probably the icing on the cake when they let it slip away.


    Thanks to brother Like2God for the great sig!

    The Padres dismissed Bud Black after eight-plus seasons, and San Diego announced that it will begin a search for an interim manager for the rest of the 2015 campaign. Bench coach Dave Roberts will guide the team, which is 32-33 and in third place in the National League West, until it makes a decision.

    This year, after a feverish offseason spree that saw the Padres add Matt Kemp and Justin Upton, among others, Black lasted just 65 games.

    Black, who logged a 649-713 record during his tenure, began managing the Padres in 2007 and delivered an 89-74 record and a third-place finish that season.

    After leading the Padres to 90 victories in 2010, Black was named the NL Manager of the Year, but the team had just two winning records under his stewardship. San Diego finished in second place in the NL West in 2010, but it never made the playoffs under Black. The Padres finished in third place in each of the past two seasons.
