By all accounts, San Diego general manager A.J. Preller subsists on a frat-boy diet and falls woefully short of the seven to eight hours of sleep per night generally recommended by medical professionals. But he makes the absolute most of the 20 waking hours that he spends texting and calling trade partners, spinning scenarios and immersing himself in the obsessive quest to find new players.

Four months into his tenure, Preller is the focal point of the most stunning turn of events in San Diego since Ron Burgundy mouthed off in front of his teleprompter.

After weeks of meetings and holding his front-office team hostage while reconfiguring the roster on his whiteboard, Preller emerged from his cocoon and crammed six weeks of hot stove activity into roughly 48 hours. Matt Kemp appeared at a Padres news conference Friday shortly after the completion of deals involving Wil Myers and Justin Upton, who were introduced via emails from San Diego's frenzied media relations department. The Padres also have a new catcher, 2014 American League All-Star Derek Norris, and a new third baseman, Will Middlebrooks, who will try to regain his old prospect luster after coming over by trade from Boston.
