Padres extend Black’s contract

Thursday August 6, 2009

In a long rumored move, today the San Diego Padres officially extended the contract of manager Bud Black through the 2010 season with a club option for 2011.

As many of you kn ow, I have called for Black’s head at times, but he cannot be blamed for the MLB record rash of injuries or the number of minor league players he has had to write into his lineup each game that has caused this team to lose so many games in 2008 and 2009.

The Padres have given Black an opportunity to be around when this team begins to compete in the NL West again.
