The San Diego Padres agreed to a $10 million, one-year deal with veteran pitcher Greg Maddux Monday, ensuring a third talented hurler in their rotation next to Jake Peavy and Chris Young for the 2008 season.
Mad Dog, who will turn 42 next April, went 14-11 with a 4.14 ERA in his first season with the Pads, who fell one win short of their third straight postseason. The future Hall of Famer boasts 347 career wins, four Cy Young Awards and a World Series ring that dates back to 1995 with the Atlanta Braves.
Maddux, a record 17-time Gold Glover, achieved 13 victories for the 20th consecutive season, surpassing Cy Young for the big league record.
Additionally, the new deal contains award bonuses, a no-trade clause and a fancypants suite for road trips.
