Phil Mickelson is afraid of long-term commitment
By mustang6560 on 12/20/12
As I pointed out in May, Phil Mickelson is many things. However, San Diego Padres minority owner isn't one of them. Apparently, despite his reported interest, Lefty told reporters yesterday that he won't be part of the new ownership.
PGA Tour player Phil Mickelson will not be an owner of the Padres after all.

Appearing at Torrey Pines on Tuesday night to discuss his renovation plans for the Torrey Pines North Course, Mickelson said for the first time that he has withdrawn his interest in his hometown baseball team.

"I think to be involved with the Padres you have to be fully committed to the long term," Mickelson said. "I've been born and raised here, but at this moment I'm not able to make that kind of long-term commitment to the city and to the team."
In addition to not being an MLB owner, Phil is not a good Broadway producer. One might say his shows "flopped".

So this means that being a minority owner of a baseball team is... a wedge issue?

joe jones says:
I don't think Phil takes anything lightly. Without full involvement what would his participation mean. He certainly doesn't want to be just a figurehead and he doesn't need the money so I will give him a pass on this.
