Jeff Moorad Purchases Padres

As expected, Jeff Moorad has reached an agreement to buy the Padres from John Moores. The agreement will start with a 30% ownership share, increasing to 100% over a five-year period. The dollar figure is not immediately know, but it is expected to be in excess of $400M.

Moores will become CEO of the Padres, replacing Sandy Alderson in that role. Gaslamp Ball thinks Paul DePodesta may also be a victim of this move.

Rob, you could be right but I think there's a pretty good chance that DePodesta takes over as GM. I know Jeff's good friends with Billy Beane and completely buys into his system, so I think DePodesta may be a big winner in this.
