Here's the part where Moorad told me that the fans get to vote on the throwbacks they wear. I give Garfinkel props on this....great idea.

Me & Moorad " Sdpads1 – The #1 Padre site 60% of the time, every time


For those of you that were wondering what was said in my meeting with Moorad I dusted off the old blog and posted it there. It was to much to type in one sitting here.

Melvin slated to accept job with Padres


SAN DIEGO -- Bob Melvin, let go last month as the manager of the Arizona Diamondbacks, will accept an unspecified position with the Padres, possibly as soon as Wednesday. Melvin was in San Diego on Monday and Tuesday meeting with Padres team officials, including general manager Kevin Towers.

Tom Garfinkel to take over as President & COO


Today, Padres CEO Jeff Moorad is to introduce the club's new president and COO, Tom Garfinkel, who resigned Saturday as Diamondbacks executive vice president and COO. He was hired into that job by Moorad. Under Garfinkel, the Diamondbacks emphasized community relations and a family-friendly experience at the ballpark.



  So I was browsing Joblo for my latest breaking news in movies and low and behold who do I see staring back at me? Kevin Kouzmanoff telling me he'll show me how to earn up to $7,500 a month...

Battle of the Budgets, Day 1


The economy is impacting everyone, baseball included. Teams are looking to build more cost-conscious rosters. But how? Is it doable? Are there enough talented, relatively inexpensive players to build a competitive roster for, say, $40 million, which is roughly the payroll the San Diego Padres hope to operate at in 2009? Well, ESPN.com put four of its experts on the case. Over a recent five-day stretch, Baseball Tonight's Steve Phillips, ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney and ESPN.com's Jayson Stark and Rob Neyer drafted their own 25-man rosters.

Classic will open doors at Friars camp


Towers said he's not against finding a place in San Diego for Blanks, even if that means moving him to the outfield while Gonzalez, an All-Star and a Gold Glove winner for the first time in 2008, plays first base. "We've talked about it," Towers said. "We've got to find somewhere for him to play. He reminds me a little of Carlos Lee. He runs well for a big man. He's not a clogger. I think he is a solid baserunner. "We might hit him some fly balls. But if we decide to make a position change with Kyle, it would be something we would do in a controlled environment."

Conventional wisdom: Get fans involved early


Of course San Diego decides to go against the grain and take away our fan fest this year. So I think what this article is trying to say is we need to throw our own Friarfest this year. Who's with me?

Brewers targeting Hoffman

"I just spoke on the phone with Melvin, and he said he's trying to find out as soon as possible -- perhaps even by the end of today -- what the chances are of signing Hoffman. The 41-year-old right-hander became a free agent when San Diego decided not to offer him salary arbitration because of budgetary restrictions." What having Gagne get lit up for them last year wasn't enough? Maybe they will sign Mitch Williams next year.

Moorad resigns from Diamondbacks, will seek ownership of Padres


Jeff Moorad has resigned as chief executive officer of the Arizona Diamondbacks to pursue ownership of the San Diego Padres. The team promoted team president Derrick Hall to chief executive officer, Diamondbacks managing general partner Ken Kendrick said Friday.

KT reportedly interested in bringing back Aki??


I'm not sure exactly what KT said because when you click on the "he'd like to sign Otsuka" link it takes you to a page that is in Japanese.....ummm...or Chinese...or is it Korean....or ummm...nevermind.
