Twenty one year veteran and to be hall of famer Greg Maddux has agreed to a one year contract with the San Diego Padres. During his illustrious career Maddux has compiled 333 career wins and an impressive 3.07 ERA.
He will be added to a starting rotation that already includes all star Jake Peavy, Chris Young, Clay Hensley and Tim Stauffer. Last season, the Padres posted the lowest ERA in the NL at 3.87 and were the only team to see their ERA be under four. With the addition of Maddux and former pitching coach Bud Black as their new manager, the Padres are stating a strong case as a team that will be able to compete with the Cardinals and Mets for National League supremacy.
