“He told me...when you make a mistake, especially a big mistake, get rid of it. Cause what you’ll end up doing is reminding your fans each and every day of the mistake that you made. as well as your ballclub will end up (starting to lose) games because of that mistake."

— Padres General Manager Kevin Towers,

led him to release high-priced veteran
(and apparent new Cub) Jim Edmonds
