Padres fire manager Andy Green; communication issues cited

There will be a new manager when the Padres are wearing their new brown uniforms next season.

Andy Green was fired Saturday morning, two years before his contract was due to expire and after four seasons with a 274-366 record.

Bench coach Rod Barajas was named interim manager and served in that role Saturday against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

“When you look at the way the last two months … and what improvements are being made and how things were playing out on a daily basis, it just didn’t feel like we were going to get there with Andy as our manager,” said General Manager A.J. Preller, who several times called Green a friend. “That’s a tough thing to say. Ultimately, we hire a manager and it’s my job to put players on the field. I’ve been beating myself up a lot over the course of the last few months. It just didn’t feel like this was going to work for the long-term.”

Maybe it’s me, but brown uniforms aren’t exactly promising as a way to indicate that you’ve turned the corner…..
