    By Jeff McDonald

    The Padres last roamed the clubhouse in 2003. The Chargers want out, sooner than later. These days, Qualcomm Stadium is mostly dormant and lifeless, as empty as a hot-dog wrapper blowing across the outfield.

    Worse, the stadium San Diego opened so proudly almost 40 years ago now costs taxpayers millions of dollars a year.

    Erik Stover wants to change all that. The city's new stadium manager said no venue should lose that kind of money, especially one with so much to offer, the only place ever to host a World Series and Super Bowl the same year.</blockquote>
