How is that valuable for a team that is guaranteed to finish in last place this year?
He doesn't sell tickets.
He doesn't help them win a division.
He doesn't help them rebuild for the future.
He doesn't even help them win games. At best he doesn't help them lose games.
He has zero value to a team like the Padres.
Exactly what value to do you see him bring?
