Those who know Padres CEO Jeff Moorad well count honesty as one of his best qualities.

Nothing he’s done since putting together an ownership group in 2008 to buy the team from John Moores has changed that perception.

At more than a few community gatherings, Moorad has explained his blueprint for success involves stockpiling the farm system with good, young talent, and that might require trading away some established assets.
But Moorad also said he wants to win during the retooling process. Pitcher Clayton Richard played a key role in the Padres’ thrilling, and unexpected, pennant chase in 2010. The team spent most of the season atop the NL West before falling two games short of the playoffs.
