But without Kubel there is no doubt this team would be competing with the Padres right now. I and most everyone collectively rolled eyes at that signing.

Towers is a weird guy, his deals that go 'right' tend to go very right. And his bad moves are just awful. No middle ground at all.
Upton is hitting .273 with 43 RBI's. I know that's not where we expect him to be at this point of the season, but I mean those numbers aren't anything to boo at. He's due to break out this year though, he is underperforming for sure.

I was one of those people rolling eyes at the Kubel signing, especially after the great year Parra had last year(believe he had the best BA on our team last year, not to mention his defense). But it's paid off for sure.
