Padres Close On Maddux

As has been speculated for some time, the Padres are close to signing Greg Maddux. Ken Rosenthal has the scoop; he describes the likely signing as a "significant blow to the Dodgers."

 

Maddux turns 41 next April. Overall in 2006 he won 15 games with a 4.20 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 3.2 K/BB. The Professor has reached 199 or more innings every season since 1988. He is one of a kind.

 

 

What a great rotation headlined by Peavy and Young with one of the best pitchers of our era teaching them the ropes.

Hopefully Petco will hide some of his diminishing skills. As great a player as he is, he is getting older every year. He doesn't have enough of a track record at Petco to predict anything so just knock on wood. He did survive Dodger Stadium which isn't as much of a pitcher's park as it once was. Holy, he survived Dodger Stadium to the tune of a 1.76 era. Hey, that's great considering that they're now a divisional opponent.
