Padres - Signed Giles
San Diego Padres - Signed 2B Marcus Giles to a 1-year contract.
Being that this is $3.25 million for a single year, it certainly looks like while the Cubs were correct about outfielders going for a lot of money this offseason, they really overshot for Mark DeRosa in a market in which there was a glut of 2B, none of which really got big contracts.
I’m really shocked that the Braves did this in the end. It’s one thing to dump salary when you can pick up something to help the team, but I have a really hard time believing that the Braves weren’t offered anything for Giles.
Obviously, this is a winning situation for the Padres. They don’t give up Scott Linebrink for Giles and get to pay Giles less than they would have if he were going into arbitration. It also makes the Barfield trade look even better and makes up for the Padres not winning the bid for Iwamura. Big thumbs up for the Padres here.
