- Olney compares the 2009 Padres to the 1993 Padres calling this off-season Fire Sale II. The sequel is always the darker part of he trilogy. Fire Sale II: Dark Days Ahead. That's scary rad.
- Olney suggests that Peavy will be traded to the Braves for players including Gorkys Hernandez and Yunel Escobar before Thanksgiving.
- Surprisingly he says Giles will be convinced to waive his no-trade clause and sent packing this winter. Wow, the relief of the Pads signing Giles only lasted two days.
- Olney thinks the large pay cut offered to Hoffman was a polite way of nudging him out of San Diego.
The Padres are being stripped down and prepared for sale, like an old battleship taken down and sold for parts.
