Seth Smith was acquired by the Padres from the Oakland Athletics in exchange for P Luke Gregerson. The trade was rated 30% fresh.
Shortly after the trade, Josh Byrnes was quoted in the San Diego Union Tribune saying:
“The roster sets up better right now,” said Byrnes. “I liked our offense from the All-Star Game of 2012 to 2013 before we got hit by injuries. This could be the final piece.”
Thereby proclaiming to all that Smith's nickname should be The Final Piece or TFP.

- ↑ Padres trade Gregerson to land Seth Smith
