Padres still not naming all 12 members of new ownership group

New, 30 comments

Remember back on March 26 when the Padres held a press conference regarding the sale of the Padres? There is video of the press conference but it's heavily edited. As I watched live, I noted that Moorad seemed to get annoyed when he was pressed for names of his ownership group. At the time he said he'd only name a couple because some members didn't want to be identified. He went on to name 11 of the 12 members. Shortly thereafter I asked Who is the elusive 12th member?

Here's another question: when SignOnSanDiego listed the owners they said he only mentioned 10 of the 12 members. Is Moorad included in the group of 12?

1 Jeff Moorad Former CEO of Diamondbacks and Former Player Agent
2 Troy Aikman Hall of Fame Football Quarterback and Moorad's partner in NASCAR
3 Wayne Seltzer Businessman, lives in Rancho Santa Fe
4 Al Baldwin Developer, San Diego
5 Robert Piccinini CEO of Save Mart Supermarkets (Modesto) and Moorad's partner in NASCAR
6 Tom Davin CEO Panda Restaurant Group, Rosemead, and Moorad's partner in NASCAR
7 Richard Barry Financial adviser, Northern California
8 Dan and Denise Costa Entrepreneur, lives in Modesto
9 Patrick and Joanne Graham Occupation Unknown. Residents of Rolling Hills near Los Angeles
10 John M. McEvoy Founder, The Mobile Solution Corp., San Diego
11 Jay D. Stein Businessman and attorney, lives in Indianapolis and Phoenix
12 ??? ???

I can't find any information on Patrick and Joanne Graham except they have a son that played baseball at UCSB. Guess who's getting drafted?

Yesterday I did some detective work and emailed the Padres asking for a complete list and I received this response today:

Thank you for your inquiry. At this time, this information is not being released to the general public. Mr. Jeffrey Moorad, however, is at the point of this ownership group.

I love a good secret society, whether it be the Bilderberg Group, Skull and Bones or the San Diego Padres. I'll stay on this investigation. If I suddenly disappear, then you'll know who is responsible and that something nefarious has happened to me, either that or I got bored of blogging. It will be one or the other.

Secrets secrets are no fun, secrets secrets hurt some one
