Padres Take First Step Toward Selling, Fire Bud Black

The Padres fired their manager Monday, saying goodbye to Bud Black, who’d been around since 2007. It’s not that the Padres blamed Black for what they’ve considered to be a disappointing start.

It’s Not Easy Facing Up When Your Whole World Is Black
