Did Padres' GM wake up Dodgers?

As spring training begins this week, the last thing a Major League Baseball team wants to do is wake up a sleeping opponent.

Yes, the Los Angeles Dodgers have been sleeping for years.

Yes, the Padres have totally dominated them in head-to-head competition.

So, why did Padres’ General Manager Kevin Towers wake up the Dodgers with the following statements at a recent luncheon concerning the Padres-Dodgers exhibition games March 15-16 in Beijing, China?

“My hope is we can kick their tails over there and give them a little taste of what we're going to give them over the course of the season,” Towers said, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Whoops, sounds like the Padres are already bragging about their dominance over the Dodgers.

Don’t think for a second that the Dodgers won’t have those comments posted in their clubhouse when they play the Padres this year, beginning with an April 4-6 series in San Diego!

Towers, be quiet! Let the Dodgers continue to be dogs who are asleep.

What is wrong with Towers? He does not have enough to do with trying to get the team ready for another long season without waking their closest rival to do better against our Padres? Let sleeping dogs lie Towers and go back to sleep yourself!
