Leonard Martinez at kvia.com first broke this story, but the website elpasopadres.com was created on June 7th and registered to Franklin Mountain Management.

According to state records, Franklin Mountain Management is owned by Paul Foster and Scott Weaver.  Yes, the same Paul Foster that is part of the MountainStar Sports Group.

The website features nothing but the silhouette of a baseball player with a bright sun and the star on Mt. Franklin, but that is hardly the point.  This registered domain could very well be a sign that the Tucson Padres are headed east.

The MountainStar Sports Group is in Dallas this afternoon meeting with Triple-A officials.
