Notable Quotables:

"That's a home run," said a high-ranking executive with another club. "That's better than signing Carlos Beltran."

"Alderson, the former president and GM of the Athletics, isn't a bean-counter who will be brought in to look good in a suit. he's a top baseball hand." - Nick Canepa

"For me this is the last piece of a complicated puzzle that involved building a ballpark and redeveloping San Diego," Moores said... "It's time to build a competitive team and it allows us to significantly strengthen our management team. I think this is our most significant signing in the 11 years I've owned the team."

The future of Bochy and Towers in the organization will be up to Alderson, Moores said, although he doesn't expect any immediate changes.
