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..
