What The Jeff Moores Pullout On The Padres Deal Means
Apparently came the news last week that Jeff Moores withdrew his bid to buy the Padres on the heels of a rescinded vote by MLB to approve his ownership. According to a Maury Brown article in today's Baseball Prospectus, that's because — surprise! — Bud Selig didn't have the votes to get it past ownership, and in particular, because it was opposed by shadow commissioner Jerry Reinsdorf. The interesting outcome is that Jeff Moorad actually may yet end up keeping the team, thanks to a rich TV deal.
