Padres Name Sarah Farnsworth Senior Vice President, Public Affairs | padres.com: Official Info
It's official. You can't properly swing a cat in the Padres Front Office without hitting a Vice President. By Tom Krasovic's count that makes 21 all together.

I know the young minor-league slugger is just 21, but the Gonzo trade is an even bigger bust if Rizzo proves to be one.
Stauffer’s Struggles | Ducksnorts
I've seen some strong opinions on twitter about the Stauffer situation. I'm surprised because at this point they could sit all the starters and I probably wouldn't notice or care.
