1st Clues to Padres Possible New Ownership Appear

In an article on Yahoo from Bob Baum of the AP, Jeff Moorad, CEO of the Arizona Diamondbacks has reportedly resigned to pursue ownership in the San Diego Padres.

So we have our first clues as to whom the Moores may be selling their controlling share of the Padres.

Moorad is a former agent, who took over as CEO of the Arizona Diamondbacks when Jerry Colangelo sold controlling interest in the team to a group or minority partners that included current managing general partner Ken Kendrick and Paul Schloss.
