STATUS OF PADRES DEAL UNCLEAR

     In Baltimore, Tom Keegan reports that former Orioles
president Larry Lucchino, organizing a group to purchase the San
Diego Padres, is close to closing the deal.  Lucchino will not
have to invest any money, but in return for brokering the deal,
he will become the Padres president and be granted a small equity
in the team (Baltimore SUN, 9/11). Sources in San Diego dispute
the report saying that no movement is expected by the three
potential buyers as long as the strike continues (DAILY sources,
9/11).
