FROM 1-22-08 at 2:17pm: According to Cot’s Baseball Contracts, Padres GM Kevin Towers is signed through 2007 with a 2008 club option. MLB.com’s Corey Brock wrote today that Towers is set to receive an extension this week. I haven’t done any rankings but I think Towers might be the game’s best GM. Maybe I’ll do an MLBTR poll on that.
