Murphy won’t return as Padres’ manager – Padres.com
The Padres didn’t wait long after Sunday’s regular-season finale to make a call on interim manager Pat Murphy’s future with the team. A little more than an hour after the 6-3 loss to the Dodgers, the team announced that Murphy will not return in the same capacity in 2016.

Brees became part of an exclusive club Sunday night, joining Tom Brady, Brett Favre, Peyton Manning and Dan Marino as the only quarterbacks in the 400 club. That Brees did so in such dramatic fashion — the game-winner in a contest the previously winless New Orleans Saints so desperately needed to win — might very well change the course of the season for his young team.

    Bud Black should have been given the entire season to see what developed.The management pulled the trigger too soon.Bud’s contract was up end of season.If you don’t want him at least show enough class to let him finish his contract.Dave Roberts should have been given interim job instead of Pat Murphy. I believe this will get better. Let A.J. do his job of finding the players and Manager to fit this system.
