The UT is reporting that the Padres ownership group is close to reaching an agreement to buy the Portland Beavers and move them to a new facility in Escondido. According to the UT the team would likely play its 2011 season in Lake Elsinore.
As a North County resident I really hope this happens and I'm pleased to hear that we could be watching them as soon as next season. Anyone have a good Escondido team name?
