It's Official Greg Maddux was traded to the Dodgers

The Dodgers officially made the announcement that they acquired Maddux by trading two minor leaguers or cash considerations.

"It's very rare that you get the opportunity to add a pitcher like Greg even one time, let alone twice," said Colletti. "He's one of the greatest pitchers of all time and we've already seen what he can add to a team both on the field and in the clubhouse."

I hate this move. I hate the fact that now I have to watch the Padres for another month and a half without Maddux in the rotation. Is there any point watching a game now that isn't started by Peavy?

As if losing Maddux wasn't bad enough he's going to a division rival and not just any division rival, the Dodgers. Why are we helping them again?

The Padres save $1.15 million and get two Minor Leaguers that will never amount to anything or a little bit of cash.

What do fans get? A terrible team that just got worse. The 2008 Padres will go down in history as one of the worst teams in franchise history and that's really saying something..
