The Padres just released this statement regarding an NBC 7/39 report that owner John Moores plans to sell a 49 percent stake in the team:

A recent news report stated that John Moores intends to sell 49 percent of the San Diego Padres as part of a divorce settlement with his wife, Becky. This report is highly speculative.

Obviously, since the Padres are part of the community estate, the matter of the Padres will need to be addressed as part of the divorce proceedings. No decision regarding the Padres has been made, and the divorce proceedings are the subject of confidential mediation.

Neither John Moores nor the Padres will have any further comment on the report.
