Bob Nightengale / USA TODAY wrote:
Their owner is going through a divorce and selling a chunk of the team. The chief executive officer announced his pending resignation. The president is set to leave in April, too.

Their ace and former Cy Young winner remains on the trade block. Season ticket sales are dismal and the player payroll has been slashed to less than $50 million. And with 12 days until opening day, their pitching staff is in disarray, with five spots open in the bullpen and one in the starting rotation.

It's little wonder the San Diego Padres, just one pitch away from the postseason two years ago, are facing a different set of expectations after a 99-loss 2008.

"There are none," general manager Kevin Towers says.

Chairman John Moores anticipates finalizing a deal this week to initially sell one-third interest in his club to former Arizona Diamondbacks CEO Jeff Moorad. CEO Sandy Alderson, a leading candidate for the Pacific-10 Conference commissioner's job, said he will resign when the transaction is completed.

President Dick Freeman also plans to depart in April.

I apologize for not having a link, but here is the press release naming Larry Scott as PAC-10 commissioner. Sorry, Sandy.



WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- The Pacific-10 Conference named Larry Scott, Chairman and CEO of the Women's Tennis Association (WTA), its new commissioner, effective July 1, 2009. Scott becomes the sixth commissioner of the Pac-10, succeeding Tom Hansen who is set to retire after 26 years in the role.

Since joining the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour in 2003, Scott has engineered the turnaround of women's professional tennis, increasing the popularity of the sport across the world. A former tennis All-American at Harvard, Scott is credited as the architect behind the largest-ever sponsorship in women's sports, a six-year, $88-million title sponsorship agreement with Sony Ericsson. He also led the WTA in its development of the largest television agreements in women's tennis history spanning viewership both in the U.S. and abroad.

"While it is difficult to replace a leader like Tom Hansen who has served the conference for more than 26 years, we are extremely pleased with the tremendous response we received to the national search," said John Hennessy, president of Stanford University and head of the executive committee. "We considered a very impressive group of candidates, and Larry Scott was clearly the most qualified and innovative leader for the Pac-10."

The Pac-10 dates back to 1915 when four schools - the University of California at Berkeley, the University of Washington, the University of Oregon, and Oregon State College - formed the conference. Now with 10 member institutions, the Pac-10 ranks first in NCAA Championships with 159 over the past 18 years and has finished with more NCAA titles than any other conference in 42 of the last 48 years, earning titles in more than 26 different men's and women's sports.

"I'm excited to pursue this very unique opportunity to be involved in a broad range of men's and women's sports at the college level and balancing the priorities of student-athletes with the commercial needs of the conference," said Scott, who will move from Florida to Northern California. "It's an exciting opportunity for me to apply my broad range of leadership skills in sports management, marketing, effective positioning of an organization to international and national audiences, and being an advocate on behalf of our sports."

Since the NCAA began conducting women's championships 27 years ago, Pac-10 schools have claimed at least four national titles in a single season on 19 separate occasions. Overall, the Pac-10 has captured 113 NCAA women's crowns, 30 more than any other conference. That said, Scott's experience in women's athletics will be especially relevant. Scott is credited with being a vocal and effective advocate for women's athletes, helping WTA members earn equal pay in major tennis tournaments around the world for the first time in 100 years.

"Our search committee was most impressed with Larry's broad range of leadership experiences in both men's and women's sports, as well as his extensive success in representing the commercial interest of men's and women's tennis," said Bob Bowlsby, athletic director of Stanford and head of the search committee. "He was the architect of a highly-effective turnaround of women's tennis over the last six years and created a compelling vision that has served the sport and its athletes extremely well. We are also very pleased to bring on such a great advocate for both men's and women's sports."

Under Scott's leadership, the WTA secured television partnerships with the major US networks and renewed its international television partnership with Eurosport, which broadcasts women's tennis to 54 countries and more than 104 million homes. Scott's career in tennis began as a professional tennis player on the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) circuit, where he played for three years and won one tournament. Scott then spent a decade in leadership and senior management positions within the ATP, serving in the posts of Chief Operating Officer, President of ATP Properties and Executive Vice President of the International Group.

Towers 'embarrassed' by team's poor showing

If it's any consolation Kevin, at least your team's not in last place.

Some excerpts that could just as easily apply to the Diamondbacks as to the Padres:

"These are the general manager's players. He wanted them and signed them. And now he finds himself questioning what many are made of – even how long they can remain in the big kitchen with the oven turned all the way up."

“I look at the situation like the economy – from euphoria to paranoia. At first I saw some fight in guys. Even when we lost a ballgame, I saw battle. But, other than Adrian (Gonzalez) and Heath (Bell), there haven't been many positives. I can't believe they even pitch to Adrian.”

(Change Adrian Gonzalez to Justin Upton and Heath Bell to Dan Haren.)


“With inexperience comes inconsistency,” he said of the bullpen, adding: “I told myself this morning that we're not world-beaters, but we're better than we're playing. I don't know what's changed. We're giving too much credit to opposing clubs."

(Strike "of the bullpen")

“We probably have young kids in survival mode, and when you do that, you're going to play tight and press. Most clubs we play, we're outmanned. If we lose we lose, but let's not give games away. The walks are driving me nuts. I don't know if it's fear or what."

There it is...

Padres ace Peavy out for at least a month

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP)—San Diego Padres ace Jake Peavy is expected to miss a month because of his injured ankle.

He was scratched from Saturday’s start against the Los Angeles Angels after an MRI showed that the tibialis tendon behind his right ankle was torn.

The right-hander will remain in a walking boot for approximately four weeks and re-evaluated in two weeks before it can be determined how much time he will eventually miss.

Peavy, the 2007 NL Cy Young winner, is 3-1 with a 4.43 ERA in four starts since he voided a trade to the Chicago White Sox. The injury occurred while he ran the bases in his first start after the proposed trade.

Jake Peavy may be out for as long as 12 weeks, according to Padres trainer Todd Hutcheson.

An MRI revealed longitudinal tearing in the posterior tibialis tendon in his right ankle. Translation: it isn't good. He will be wearing a cast for at least a month and the medical staff will then re-evaluate the ankle at that time.

So does that reduce the number of teams interested in trading for him?

Yes, to like zero.
I wonder how pissed off Moorad must be that Peavy rejected the trade to CHA.
Of course, I'm sure Jeff still thinks the world of Jake... Wink

If the D-backs were inclined to trade Webb, should he come back in top form, they'd definitely have a feeding frenzy at the deadline.

I'll write more a bit later; need to get some food to help with the hangover...
