Kevin Towers as GM?

As a Brewers fan living in San Diego, I get more Padres information than I could ever need or want. That said, after reading the "Fire Doug Melvin" post calling for us to (natch) fire Doug Melvin, I couldn't help but think the former GM of San Diego who was let go last season - Kevin Towers - might be a good choice to replace DM. Naysayers will point to the several awful seasons of Padres baseball under KT's watch, but I believe that's a bit unfair. The Padres did go to the World Series in 1998, and also made the playoffs a couple of times since. San Diego and Milwaukee have quite a bit in common with their market size and payroll. San Diego will always be the "little brother" to LA, the way Milwaukee is (like it or not) to Chicago. Given the mentioned restrictions, I think KT did pretty well as the General Manager. The only reason he got run out of town was because of an ownership change and a desire for the new regime's "own guy." Certainly KT would give up is current job of "special assignment scout" for the Yankees if the Brewers came calling, and I think Doug Melvin has taken us as far as he's going to. Several more seasons with DM means several more seasons of treading water, in my humble opinion. So thanks for 2008, Doug, but I think it's time for some new blood. And I respectfully submit Kevin Towers for your consideration.
