The Athletic did a gigantic draft of baseball including City, Stadium, Owner, Manager, 1 Pitcher and 1 Player. GM could be anyone out there like you could pick Elon Musk if you wanted.

I kept scrolling for anything DBack related and at Pick #108 the first Arizona related thing happens and it is the City of Phoenix.

Yes the city was drafted before anything baseball related. Lovullo is next at #168. Chase Field at #170. Ken Kendrick at #179. No DBacks player made the top 64.

The Padres beat writer must really like coming to Phoenix because he took our city and our manager.

Dennis Lin, Padres writer: My team is built to win now, and it has all the necessary motivation. Trout, likely still the best player in baseball, hasn’t tasted the playoffs since 2014. Reinsdorf, 85, has one World Series title (2005), along with six NBA titles, and clearly wants one more. Lynn looked as good as ever at age 34. Bloom squeezed the most out of limited resources with Tampa Bay, then gained big-market experience in Boston. Lovullo is a former National League Manager of the Year coming off a 110-loss season with a talent-deficient roster. He’s staying in Phoenix, the country’s fifth-most populous city, but now he’ll benefit from having a first-ballot Hall of Famer and a workhorse starter. Plus, he’ll upgrade from Chase Field to the newest ballpark in the league.
