As expected, the Padres inked third starter Greg Maddux to a fair one-year, $10MM deal. Who says all Scott Boras clients are money-greedy?
The Padres still have more starting pitching on the agenda. They’ve been linked to other ex-Cubs in Matt Clement and Mark Prior. Jayson Stark said recently that the vibe was that Prior would be non-tendered. Josh Towers also may be on the radar.
Failing that, the Padres could always sign Freddy Garcia, as suggested in my 2008 Top 50 Free Agents List.
