Is Moores looking to sell? If so, his timing could hardly be worse

Characterizing a story as “highly speculative” is attorney talk for “none of your business.” It is neither a confirmation nor a denial, but a transparent tactic designed to create doubt without actually disputing any of the specific assertions.

Somebody has been watching the debates.

Given the petty nature of the disputes that have become public during Moores’ divorce proceedings, the sale of a significant portion of the Padres has seemed inevitable for many weeks. Yet even if the divorce were more amicable, it would be difficult to bridge the irreconcilable differences between baseball’s requirement of a single controlling partner and California’s community property laws.
