Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODA

Jon just called me and was like, "Did Garfinkel just quit? I saw it on Twitter, so maybe it's a joke."

If only Jon, if only it were a cruel, cruel joke.

Statement from the San Diego Padres | padres.com: News

Peter Seidler, lead investor of the San Diego Padres, and Ron Fowler, Executive Chairman, announced today that they have accepted the resignation of Tom Garfinkel as President and CEO of the team.

Both Fowler and Seidler expressed their appreciation for Tom's many contributions to the Padres over the last four years. Fowler will assume Garfinkel's responsibilities on an interim basis until a new President and CEO is hired.
