Phil Michelson's First Move As Padres Owner?

Phil Michelson's First Move As Padres Owner?Major League Baseball just approved the sale of the San Diego Padres to an ownership group that includes famed golfer and San Diego area resident Phil Mickelson.

Wrote Dwight Perry in the Seattle Times:  

"First order of business: Swinging a trade for (Arizona reliever) J.J. Putz."

In addition, iFolloSports.com is investigating the rumor that Michelson is hoping to persuade Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver to switch sports and become a Padre.

We also think it might be a good idea for Mariners manager Eric Wedge to sit by his phone.
