News on a Tuesday
So, there is some interesting stuff going on around San Diego. First off, it appears that owner John Moores will try to sell the club. Moores had been a good owner. He was instrumental in getting Petco Park built. But it is time for him to go. So, we will have to see who wants to buy a club who just lost 99 games and whose payroll is ridiculously low. But a new owner would bring new hope to Padres fans, so I really hope it works out.
In other exciting-ish news, CEO Sandy Alderson said that they are no longer approaching clubs about trading Jake Peavy. This is good news, but it doesn’t mean that Jake won’t get traded. Teams could still approach the Padres and try to make a deal. It is still very likely that he will get traded. The Padres will need to make an official announcement that they will not trade Jake before I relax. It would just be so amazing to have Jake here, pitching on Opening Day against the Dodgers. Sigh. I really hope he stays, for all our sakes.
Well, it was raining hard all day yesterday here in San Diego, so naturally we were stuck inside. My friend had recorded the Padres’ last game of the season, and I hadn’t finished watching it yet. It was a really pathetic game against the Pirates, a 6-1 loss. We left 11 runners on!!! It was pretty sad, but it was cool to see all my players again, watch Kouz make incredible plays, just watch some baseball. Boy do I miss it! Well, the Padres’ first Spring Training game is February 25. I can’t wait!
Did you hear about the Braves and Furcal? That could really open up a hole for the Peavy-to-Braves deal. I wonder if Towers and Wren start talking again.
Kaybee – only a few more weeks and then we can say “this year when spring training starts”!
Darion- I hadn’t heard that! I’ll have to check it out.
I forgot to mention-isn’t the top 100 thingy so cool? I am very impressed and it looks great!
i still can’t believe they lost the last game of the season!! it was disappointing. but i can’t WAIT for spring training! go padres!
Padres for sale, huh?
You think we can pony up some cash, get a few loans and buy the Pads? I’ve always wanted all access. Being an MLB owner would be cool. Whaddya say?
Congrats on the TOP 100, BTW…I’m jealous.
Never fear, Kaybee. Check out my post from yesterday about the Moores’ divorce. We’re all chipping in to buy the Padres. Can you spare a dollar or so? We can do it!
It was kinda hard, and thank you. (:
Everybody else is ponying up to congress for a bailout maybe the Padres could be owned by the citizens of this great country?!
Awww, thanks. I just got lucky though. 🙂
Thanks Again! Wow, selling the club? Thats
BIG news! 😮 http://tribechick.mlblogs.com/
