Brian Giles Re-Signs With Padres

The Unofficial MLB Blog is reporting that Brian Giles has re-signed with the Padres.  The news came via KGTV-10 in San Diego, according to the blog.  The deal is said to be for just three years and $30MM with a $6MM option for 2009.  Looks like it wasn’t all about the money for Giles.

Unofficial MLB is the only published report of the signing at this point, and I have known them to be reliable in the past.  I’ll get you more info when I have it.

Update: Ted Leitner and Lee "Hacksaw" Hamilton are also reporting the signing in San Diego.  Apparently Kevin Towers sent an apology to Giles’s agent yesterday and a deal was struck quickly.

Thanks to John and Dave
