Just spotted it on RotoWorld
The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the Padres and Tadahito Iguchi have come to terms on a one-year contract
A pretty odd choice for Iguchi. The second baseman wanted a three-year deal and was offered two years by at least one team, the Rockies. However, he's opted to take a one-year deal to play in the game's toughest ballpark for hitters, something that doesn't figure to help his value next winter. He'll be the stopgap second baseman while Matt Antonelli continues to develop. Dec. 12 - 12:17 am et

I was hoping he was going to Colorado...woulda been a nice sleeper. In San Diego I don't think theres much value there for fantasy baseball purposes.

Agree. Either Colorado or staying in Philly to play third for them. Oh well, he's pretty much off my draft board now.

Fantasy wise probably not for a 33 yo. However, he does get on base at a good clip and has moderate power. Can't be any worse than Marcus who was very disappointing in 07 to say the least. Also, Petco isn't that bad for righty hitters.

He has played his whole career in two of the top 5 hitter's parks in baseball. Normally I think the impact of stadiums is a little overstated, but going from a top 5 to a bottom 5 stadium for hitters must have an effect.

According to http://www.signonsandiego.com/sports/pa ... -fuku.html
Ichuchi is guaranteed around $4 million. I think that's a pretty good signing for the Padres.

Kevin Towers: "Glad to have you aboard Tadahito! Can you do me a favor? Can you put this Padres jersey on for me, just for a minute. Yeah I know it says Fukudome on the back, I just want to see how it looks. Please?"
