I think John's excited about taking a bit of a back seat. ... John can be as active as he wants to be. ...
As opposed to what he did last season? I wish Moores would just give up control, does he think he's helping at this point? Any owner that is excited about taking a back seat probably shouldn't be an owner.
"I will remain as chairman of the Padres for a few years and Moorad will be CEO," Moores wrote. "I intend to be active with the owners at MLB meetings ---- and Moorad intends to win a World Series.
"I have the easier job."
The John Moores that saved the Padres in 1994 and the Moores of today seem like two different people.
