Woody Williams signs with San Diego

Postby ajgnydc722 » Wed Dec 08, 2004 10:03 pm

From Rotoworld:
Padres signed RHP Woody Williams, who had been with the Cardinals, to a one-year contract with an option for 2006.
If the Padres are guaranteeing Williams just $4 million, this looks like a good signing. His flyball tendincies won't hurt him in Petco Park, giving him a chance to post a sub-4.00 ERA. Injuries might be a problem, but that's why they're able to sign him at an affordable price. According to the AP, Williams is guaranteed $3.5 million and could make up to $14.5 million over the next two years. Dec. 8 - 7:33 pm et

Looks to be a pretty good pickup for the Padres.

I guess STL just wanted to make room for the younger guys, but if he was willing to go for something like that I don't know why they didn't resign him. :-?

As a side note: Is anyone else as confused as I am? Morris signs for less than $2million guaranteed, Woody signs for about $4million guaranteed, but the Yankees are paying out the you know what for Wright, the Phillies for Lieber, and the Mets for Benson. :-? :-/ What's going on with the pitching? :-[

Looks good to me - he should be a good late round pick seeing as though PETCO is the anti-Coors, even though he was already suited fairly well to Busch.

That's what I'm saying. :-/ He did pitch in SD before coming to STL so I guess he really like it out there. If he can stay healthy, the Padres got a heck of a deal on him. ;-D

It sure looks like Matt Clement is going to be a Cardinal. And I hate to say that since I want him to sign with the Tribe.

Trade you Brown for Klesko. You save 1.5M over 2 years and you are out of the commitment in 1 year.
