Yesterday Bud Black claimed his 600th Padres win as manager.  Black was the second Padres manger to tuck 600 wins into upper most elastic trim of his jock strap.  Former manager Bruce Bochy reached the milestone first in 2002, also in his 8th season, but Bochy did it in 59 fewer games.

Black for his part seemed very emotional about the accomplishment.

"It's a round number," he said of 600 wins, smiling. "I like 601 better."

Here's a break down of the two winningest managers in Padres history and their first 600 wins.  Data is from Baseball-Reference.
