Paul DePodesta explains the Padres' Plan

The Plan

  1. Procure Players
  2. Develop Players
  3. Produce Major League Players
  4. Produce Championship Players

The aspect that has made this plan all the more difficult is that while building this pipeline we were absolutely committed to competing for a Championship at the Major League level. Rebuild and contend simultaneously - that was the goal.

This is akin to undergoing a major remodel at your house, but deciding to live there at the same time... and having a dinner party for all of your friends every week.
