SAN DIEGO president Sandy Alderson would like to bring in his own people, but with the Padres winning back-to-back NL West titles, it is difficult for him to get rid of the long-time management duo of general manager Kevin Towers and manager Bruce Bochy.

That's why Alderson was to quick to grant permission to Arizona, Boston and the Dodgers to talk to Towers about vacant GM jobs a year ago. And it's why the Padres have let it be known that if the Cubs or Giants want to talk to Bochy about their managerial vacancies, they will be given the chance.

I hope Bochy doesn't leave.  I don't have any stats or anything, I just like him and would be a little sad if he left.
