Giles is a Padre!!!

New, comments

We've heard from several sources that the Padres have indeed resigned Brian Giles. The official announcement should happen tomorrow.

The guys over at Ducksnorts are chatting about it. From what I can tell (I haven't heard it myself on 1090 yet), it's something like a 3 year deal. I'm so pumped now. So pumped, yo.

Update [2005-11-30 23:44:3 by Dex]: And, via Ducksnorts via San Diego Spotlight, here's the link. Details of the deal appear to be three years at $9 million a year plus an option for a fourth year and a $3 million buyout. I'll take back anything I might have said about Moores being a cheapskate. It feels good to know that we root for a team that can hang onto their most productive player. The offseason is looking much brighter now.
