I grew up in the NE corner of Washington state, but spent my first umpteen years of adulthood in San Diego, hence the split fandom of Padres/Seahawks. I believe in spirited and passionate, but cordial debate. But if you can't take a joke, that's your problem, not mine. And if you are illiterate, I won't take you seriously.

When you have runners at 2nd and 3rd with no outs and zero runs to show for it, you can't go to the "unlucky" excuse.

I'm glad it was a one-year contract, which shows they weren't exactly overflowing with confidence about durability.

I agree with Wonko's sentiment that while not a low-ball offer, it's still rather puzzling.

While this injury certainly can't be put on the Padres' training staff, it's not like his injury history wasn't a known risk.
