Report: Former Dodgers owner Peter O'Malley is favorite to land Padres

A source with knowledge of the process tells Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com that the sale of the San Diego Padres is imminent, and that the group headed by former Los Angeles Dodgers owner Peter O'Malley is the frontrunner.

Padres owner John Moores met with Peter Seidler, O'Malley's nephew, on Friday after meeting with Gary Jabara, the other bidder, earlier in the week. Both parties have offered $800 million -- $600 million for the team and $200 million for part of the team's stake in Fox Sports San Diego.

“From what I’ve heard, it is O’Malley’s and Seidler’s to lose,” the source said. “Moores apparently also likes Jabara a lot and thinks he would be an outstanding owner as well, but the devil is in the details.”
