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|
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
