First impression: Last we saw the Padres, they were about the most inept team in baseball. Well, since then, things have only gotten worse. Two seasons since winning their second consecutive NL West title, their objectives are to clear payroll and rework a spotty farm system and get back to creating the formula that will work at Petco Park. Supporting the adage that in divorce it is better to be poor than rich (actually, I might have made that up), John Moores has a new partner in Jeff Moorad and in at most five years will be out altogether. That’s actually decent news for Padres fans, as Moorad had a nice run in Arizona, operating the Diamondbacks on a budget while putting an entertaining product on the field. The never-ending story is the Jake Peavy availability. Moorad hasn’t divulged his feelings on the matter. But while Peavy at $8 million in ’09 seems reasonable, it’s likely the next three seasons (at $48 million) aren’t. Yahoo! Sports
