I was actually talking about a teen-round draft. I think there's enough of the risk takers who have been burned repeatedly by these two guys that they might slip low enough this year for me to draft strictly for upside.

damn, i was hoping the Astros would take a chance with him. I figure he chose the Padres over them as I would think the Astros would've offered a similar type deal.

Good no risk signing by the Pads. Wish the Mets would have taken the chance. I don't know why, but I never seem to learn with this guy...

Really just a fantastic signing IMO. Where is the risk here? We all know what he can do if his arm doesnt fall off.

I would have given him 2 mill, with incentives up to 4 if I were the Astros.

Wow, that's all it took? How many teams do you think were bidding for him? That seems really low for a dominant pitcher who can't stay healthy. You'd think any team who considers themselves a contender this year would have thrown a half million more or so at him in base salary.

The "risk" for the Padres is that it's only a 1 year deal. If Prior somehow stays healthy, just imagine what kind of money he will be offered next year.

Either way, it's a great signing by Kevin Towers. ;-D

Wow that is really cheap, the cubs wouldn't take the chance and spend at least that much on him? Well the Pads are making a nice rotation out there and are doing it in style,

This really is an amazing deal for the Pads. I would've thought that even with the concerns about Prior, he could have got a bigger deal.

If he comes back anywhere near the production he was at, look for a big payday next season. Hopefully a 1 year deal will motivate him to show he still has the goods.
