The Diamondbacks are only one more move away from sustained success, all they need to add is a new owner. Please offer you suggestions. We want someone who

1) isn't a blithering embarrasment to west Virginia university football.
2) doesn't think he knows which popular veterans must be retained at all costs.
3) doesn't tap dance every time he forces the team to sign or trade for an overvalued veteran pitcher because a scorekeeper happened to allot extra wins to them because their teammates scored lots of runs.
4) doesn't think agents are great guys who should be given full run of the team cause they know how to negotiate win-win deals with aging left fielders, and can sign former clients for too much money.
5) doesn't think a top 12 market should have the 28th biggest payroll.

In fact, ill take anyone sight unseen who is willing ton spend the league average, say $90m a year, on payroll regardless of how many of the other tests they flunk.

Here is my first suggestion, Bill Bidwell. He gives fans a winner every 20 years, so odds are he has to be better than another 20 years of Ken Kendrick.

Can an owner be fired?
If I had the cash I might buy a team. Pretty sure I would hire smarter people then me to run it but I may dabble some and walk around with out worrying about being fired.
I thought not being fired would be one of the perks of ownership.

I would be the worst owner ever. They wouldn't be able to keep me off the field/out of the dugout. It would be fantabulous.

Is the "General Partner" majority ownership group 3 people or 5? I've read both, but MLB lists Ken Kendrick, Mike Chipman, and Jeff Royer as general partners. I know there are lots of people who have a small stake in the team.
