The Padres have had a very active postseason, and that is nothing but good news for Padre fans. The offseason began with the departure of GM Jed Hoyer and assistant GM Jason McLeod, who left San Diego to join former colleague Theo Epstein, who was hired by the Chicago Cubs to become their new GM. Hoyer will become the Cubs president of baseball operations while McLeod, has been hired as senior vice president/scouting and player development.

The Padres will rely on new GM Josh Byrnes, formerly Vice President of Baseball Operations with the Padres as well as the GM of the Arizona Diamondbacks from November 2005 to July 2010. Brynes will be looked to make the Padres a contender in the NL West. Byrnes has had a very busy offseason including five trades and one free-agent signing that will shake up the Padres roster.
