10:38 AM ET 04.08 | Tony Gwynn, please save your team. The Padres are up for sale, after Jeff Moorad's bid to buy the team from John Moores collapsed last month. Moores has retained Steve Greenberg of Allen and Co. to broker the sale, according to two people speaking on condition of anonymity because Moores has made no announcement. Gwynn is pitching common sense. The new owners are going to need someone like him selling it, the same way Magic is selling the Dodgers. Gwynn said he has not heard from any prospective Padres owners, but he would listen to what they had to say.

San Diego just isn't much of a sports town. Both the Padres and Chargers struggle and neither has ever won anything. I guess the weather is too nice or people just have too many other things to do.

the padres would need;;; a new manager, new coaches in every depth, perhaps the players aren't a top hitters but still they could put a good fight in their division!!!
