Padres Padres pick up '14, '15 options on manager Black

[QUOTE]Bud Black, the second-longest tenured manager in Padres history, had the club options on his contract for the 2014 and 2015 seasons exercised Monday.

Black has a 464-509 record in six seasons managing the Padres, with winning records in 2007 and 2010.

Black, who was already under contract through 2013, was named the National League's Manager of the Year by the Baseball Writers' Association of America in 2010.

"Buddy has a keen insight into team dynamics and creates a great environment for the players and coaching staff," Padres general manager Josh Byrnes said in a statement.

"He is a gifted leader with a terrific mind for the game and a genuine interest and curiosity related to all areas of our organization."

In 2012, the Padres finished 76-86 with a fourth-place finish in the NL West after a slow start that was caused in part by underperformance and a slew of early-season injuries.

The Padres went 49-37 over their final 86 games, posting a .570 winning percentage that ranked as the fifth-best among all NL teams from June 28 to the end of the regular season./QUOTE]
