Padres searching for Kevin Towers replacement, DePodesta not on list

Kevin Towers

If you haven't heard, XX1090's Darren Smith has word that the Padres are actively searching for Kevin Towers replacement. While he did not have any news on who the replacement will be, he has been told that it will not be Gaslamp Ball favorite Paul DePodesta.

I've seen three faults in Kevin Towers in his time as GM:

1. He cares too much.

2. He can't stay within a budget (to the delight of Padres fans).

3. He hands out no-trade contracts like an old man handing out a pocket full of Werther's Original Candies at Legoland.

So this is it. KT may be out. DePodesta not on the list. Who will the new GM be?

[UPDATE]

Moorad will announce that Kevin Towers will no longer be the GM of the Padres at 2pm PST tomorrow in a Padres Press Conference.
