I -- and I'd wager, all here -- would think that Jeff Moorad would be in full charge of the Padres as soon as he was approved, and the ink was dry on the contract.
But, as I interpret this story in the Union-Tribune of 1-11...That's not the case.
Says Tom Krasovac:
"John Moores will remain as majority owner of the Padres for three or four years, even if the ongoing negotiations with a Jeff Moorad-led group yields an agreement, according to major league sources."Moores Still In Charge?
OK, here we go -- again. If Moores is still running the show -- he wants the payroll at 40 mil.....therefore......need I even say more? Does "majority owner in-waiting" wield enough clout to veto what the "still-the-majority-owner" wants? This is all very strange. And we think the Cubs have had a bizarre past....
That "deal," as far as I am concerned, comes back on the table.
