Newsstand

Two days ago, I wrote a lengthy article about how Jeff Moorad's bid to become control owner of the Padres fell apart. Here's the story. As I wrote last night, John Moores took over negotiations on the TV deal with Fox Sports San Diego and restructured the agreement. Moores shared details of the new TV pact with mlb.com in this story today. For Padres fans, the good news is the TV negotiations are done and with Moorad out of the picture, the deal has MLB's approval.

  1. Any idea if this will impact the AT&T or Time Warner deals?

  2. Can't hurt, Evinmod, but the way one baseball official put it, negotiations between cable providers are "hand to hand combat." Doesn't seem like MLB or Moores can do much to resolve it.
