NEW INVESTMENT: Also in San Diego, Kevin Acee wrote when the sale is completed, "we’ll still have questions regarding what the O’Malleys are all about," but fans will "know we have an engaged ownership group." Padres RF Mark Kotsay said, "You know what you're getting from the O'Malleys. It brings to rest the uncertainty and questions. We can get a clearer picture now." Kotsay is the "only Padre who was in the majors when the O’Malley brothers’ father and Peter and Tom Seidler’s mother" sold the Dodgers in '97. Padres P Huston Street said, "Everyone wants someone committed to winning. You see that in signings -- or not." Acee wrote, "The players are not saying Moores was not engaged. But I will. I haven't talked to the man in more than 10 years, and there weren't many words, at that. The only evidence I need is his lack of investment, a team that has the lowest payroll in baseball and has been in the bottom four for four straight years" (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 7/7).
