Padres ink James Shields

Reports surfacing early morning that the Padres have signed RHP James Shields to a 4 year $72-$76 million contract. The biggest fish is now officially off the market. Pretty safe to say Padres are a huge push for the pennant.

He'll be great in that stadium.

How about them Padres?

Also, this is the highest free agent contract they've ever given out. The largest was what they gave to Benoit...for 15 million dollars. How is that even possible haha


The return shall be legenday!
The Padres really stacked up this season. Kemp, Justin Upton, Myers, Ian Kennedy, Shields, and Morrow to name a few, and they'll probably finish 3rd in their division after the San Francisco Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers. Must suck to play in a tough decision...oh wait, I'm a Jays fan.

Good signing by the Padres…I think Shields has found a good home in a hopefully-rebounding team. I know I'm happy to see him going there instead of to the Dodger$ or Giants. It's a lot more intriguing.
