I'm exactly one acquisition away from no longer being a Padres fan

I just got sent this article from resident Gaslamp Baller, unapologetic Giants fan and fellow Dodger hater, bondsbeliever. He sent it with the message, "Look who the Padres want". A quick perusal of the first headline:

Club makes contract offer to second baseman Giles
I thought, "Yeah bondsbeliever. We seen it. We know, dude. Old news"

Then I thought, "Le Yawn".

Then, I scanned down a little more...
Padres want Werth

Towers said the Padres are making a pitch for outfielder Jayson Werth, who became a free agent on Tuesday when the Dodgers didn't offer him a contract. Towers said that assistant Paul DePodesta is handling the negotiations...

I was fine with the raising of the ticket prices. I was fine with the lack of activity in the Winter Meetings. I was ok with them losing Bochy, Barfield, Roberts and Piazza. I didn't freak out. But this is testing the limits of my fanhood.

I knew DePodesta was a bad idea. I knew it. I could feel it in my gut that this guy would be a problem. Why isn't KT handling this negotiation? Because KT actually cares about the Padres. You KT protesters have been putting it in the wrong place, man. The source of the problem wasn't KT, man.

I'm so angry, that I can't unclench my fists. I was forced to ask Jess come and type while I dictate.

I have more to say about this, but I have to go take my last final for the year. For now let's all just remind ourselves why this guy should not be brought here.
