Move aside, Dodgers. The Padres are the newly-minted most active team on the west coast. In case you've been under a rock for the last week, here's a breakdown of exactly what the Padres have done:

And they're probably not done. San Diego's new outfield of Kemp, Myers and Upton means that a couple of their five "backups" (Carlos Quentin, Seth Smith, Rymer Liriano, Cameron Maybin and Will Venable) will likely be traded as well.

In making these deals, the Padres have found a way to acquire new starters at six different positions, without dealing any of their three prime prospects (Austin Hedges, Hunter Renfroe or Matt Wisler). Wieland, Eflin, Bauers, Ross, Turner, Hahn, Alvarez, Fried, the Petersons and the Smiths all have considerable upside, though were not ranked among the best names in the system.
