    Offseason

    Blockbuster Deal

    On December 4, 1990, the Padres traded second baseman Roberto Alomar and outfielder Joe Carter to the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for first baseman Fred McGriff and shortstop Tony Fernández. Blue Jays GM Pat Gillick and Padres GM Joe McIlvaine originally talked about just trading Joe Carter for Fred McGriff.[4] The Padres were losing Jack Clark and needed a new first baseman. The Blue Jays had John Olerud ready to take over at first base but were losing outfielder George Bell. Gillick decided to up the ante by trying to get Roberto Alomar. Gillick figured that with Garry Templeton in the twilight of his career, Fernández would be an adequate replacement.[4] Alomar feuded with Padres manager Greg Riddoch and the thinking was that Bip Roberts and Joey Cora could platoon at second base.[4] Alomar and Carter would go on to help the Toronto Blue Jays win the 1992 World Series and 1993 World Series.
