Zito and Prior to become Padres?

According to the Rumor Mill, our starting rotation will look pretty nice next season with both Zito and Prior.

Do we have power-hitting corner outfielder? Do we have a power-hitter?

Zito has been having fun dropping hints about his impending free-agent status all year. He later added that Petco Field is "a great park to pitch in.I'm sure I'll pitch here again sometime soon."

Why sometime soon?

"I'm going to sign here. I'm a free agent," Zito said, with a straight face, before breaking into a grin. "It's a major league baseball park. I'm in the major leagues. Chances are. ..."
