Padres - Signed Pistachio

San Diego Padres - Signed P Pedro Astacio to a minor-league contract.

While Astacio probably can’t do too much worse than either Tim Redding or Darrell May have this year in the rotation, Tim Stauffer is almost probably a better pitcher at this point despite being hit hard lately.  That being said, Astacio may not be the worst option around - he gets killed with the gopher ball and he won’t find many better places to play than Petco.  Of course, I said the same thing about Darrell May over the winter and he still has managed to allow 10 homers in 60 innings.  If Astacio can’t succeed in San Diego, he’s done.

Kaz Ishii is better than any of them.

So is Tom Glavine.

OK, the Padres will trade you Astacio for Ishii.

Disguisey?

Matt's post was obviously typed by Omar Minaya.

Almost probably? Is that the same as "might be"?

There's a reason I called Astacio "The White Flag" in his few appearances for the Red Sox last year.

"There's a reason I called Astacio "The White Flag" in his few appearances for the Red Sox last year."


Because he's going to win some games for the Cubs?
