Open Thread: How did this trade happen?

The more I think about it, the more I think that Brian Lawrence must have done something to put himself in a Nationals uniform. It couldn't have just been last season's poor play. Or I guess it could have been.

Are the Padres that concerned with marketing to fans in Mexico as to pick up Vinny Castillo? Did Kevin Towers find the fountain of youth? Is there something tricky going on?

Open Thread if anybody's willing to enlighten me.
