As noted last night, you're all to remain on high alert today as we wait for the Padres to sign James Shields.  Things looked promising in the morning with news about momentum, gains and heat.

After not talking yesterday, Scott Miller says that today there's been a flurry of talks between the Padres and Shields' agent, but progress has stopped over a disagreement.  His sources used a tennis metaphor saying the ball was in Shields' court now. This is just a hunch, but I bet they're arguing over money!

There's still hope though because Buster Olney's sources say that San Diego will still probably be Shields' destination.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm going to hold my breath until further notice.

UPDATE:

Welp, this makes me nervous.
