Padres Ink Maddux To 1-Year Extension
ESPN.com is reporting that the San Diego Padres have re-signed veteran Greg Maddux to a 1-year contract worth $10M. The move also means that Maddux was going to opt out of his player option worth $8.5M, but didn't want to make San Diego exercise their $11M team option.
"Mad Dog" finished 2007 going 14-11 with a 4.11 ERA, starting in 34 games. It's a good move for San Diego, as they had to spend their exact 2007 amount on Greg. Hopefully San Diego won't have to face Tony Gwynn Jr. in game 162 of 2008.
