Maddux re-signs with Padres

How long can he play? He's up to 347 W's.

I think it looks pretty good for him catching Mathewson and Alexander at 373.

But can he get to 400? It'd be him, Cy Young, Walter Johnson, and nobody else.

So far, he's not fading badly. If he can keep it up for another 3-point-something seasons...

The fact that it's a one year deal says to me that it is probably his last. I would love to be wrong, though. I love watching Maddux pitch.

Or maybe it means SD didn't want to sign an old P to a multi-year deal... who knows? (Not me.)

I wouldn't be so sure. There's also these incentives with the contract including a player and/or club option for 2008 -

2008 - $6M player option or $11M club option

2008 player option may increase to:

* $7.5M with 170 IP in 2007

* $8.75M with 185 IP in 2007

* $10M with 200 IP in 2007

... and these incentives/perks.

* no-trade protection

* award bonuses:

- $0.1M for Cy Young ($50,000 for placing 2nd, $25,000 for 3rd),

- $0.1M for MVP ($50,000 for 2nd, $25,000 for 3rd)

- $0.1M for WS MVP

- $50,000 each for All Star selection, Gold Glove or LCS MVP

- $25,000 for Silver Slugger

* suite on road, membership at Del Mar Country Club
