Brown Signs Extension

Friday -- January 14th, 2000

Brown Signs $55 Million Extension
Deal keeps ace pitcher in San Diego through 2004

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- In a clear signal that the defending World Series Champions aren't ready to relinquish the N.L. West to the free-spending Dodgers, the Padres have signed Kevin Brown to a 4-year extension worth nearly $55 million. Brown was scheduled to become a free agent at the end of the 2000 season.

"It's pretty cool knowing I'll be able to retire as a Padre," the soon-to-be 35 year-old Brown said. He will be 40 years in the final year of the extension in 2004. "Hopefully I'll have a few more rings by then."

Brown has been a part of three championship teams in San Diego, winning the World Series with the Padres in 1991, 1998, and 1999. He has a lifetime record of 203-95, and won the Cy Young Award in 1998 when he went 27-2 with a 1.99 ERA. He has pitched in each of the last four MLB All-Star games.

"We have a good thing going here and we'd like to stay on top for as long as we can," Padres GM Jack McKeon said. "Brownie is a big part of that. We'd hate to lose a guy like that to another team."

Fellow ace Greg Maddux remains on track for free agency. The four-time Cy Young winner has one year remaining on his current contract, and extension talks have hit a standstill between Maddux and the Padres. The 33-year-old is rumored to have an unresolved conflict with manager Cookie Rojas, though neither side has commented publicly about the situation.

The Padres could face stiff competition from their rivals in Los Angeles. The Dodgers signed Chipper Jones (.345, 49 HR, 133 RBI in 1999) to a record 7-year, $107.4 million free agent deal at the start of free agency, only to see the Cubs break that bench mark by signing shortstop Alex Rodriguez to an 8-year, $123.3 million contract just hours later. Ken Griffey Junior (.261, 39 HR,112 RBI) was added to the Dodgers lineup just a week later through free agency, inking a $72.5 million deal for 5 years. Though the team did lose reigning Cy Young winner Pedro Martinez to the St. Louis Cardinals this winter, the Dodgers appear to be primed to improve on their 91-win campaign from 1999 with a revamped batting order.

Padres Fall to Marlins in 2000 NLCS

Friday -- October 20th, 2000

Marlins Oust Padres in NLCS Game 7
Florida prevails in 13 inning thriller to reach first-ever World Series



SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- The Padres' run at a third straight World Series ended with a stunning extra-inning defeat on Friday, falling to the Florida Marlins 5-3 in 13 innings in Game 7 of the National League Championship Series. Luis Gonzalez and Sharnol Adriana delivered the final blows, crushing home runs against the Padres in the decisive 13th inning. The Marlins will face the Chicago White Sox in the World Series.

"Very disappointing," catcher Mike Piazza said, after batting .405 with 7 home runs and 14 RBI in the postseason. "We set ourselves up pretty well, and we just didn't finish."

The Padres had seized a 2-0 series lead against the Marlins, playing in their first-ever postseason. But Florida managed to even the series at 2-2, and staved off elimination in Game 6 to force the winner-take-all Game 7 at Qualcomm Stadium.

"I don't have the words," Greg Maddux told reporters. Maddux dropped a 3-1 decision in Game 6 despite allowing just one run on three hits in a stellar seven-inning effort. He is eligible for free agency this off-season, and has continually butted heads with manager Cookie Rojas, who signed a 4-year extension after the Padres beat the St. Louis Cardinals 3-1 in the NLDS.

"If this was his last ride with us, it was one hell of a run," GM Jack McKeon said. "Mad Dog is one of the greatest pitchers of his generation, and I'd say one of the all-time greats. We'd love to have him back if he'll join us."

Padres trade Edmonds

Tuesday -- October 31st, 2000

Passing of the Torch?
Padres deal Edmonds to NL Champs for Kotsay, prospect



SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- Though its front office is insisting otherwise, all signs point to a San Diego rebuild after the Padres traded All-Star center fielder Jim Edmonds to the reigning National League champion Florida Marlins on Tuesday for unheralded outfielder Mark Kotsay and top prospect Adrian Gonzalez.

Edmonds earned his third trip to the MLB All-Star Game in 2000, and hit .311 with 26 home runs and 103 RBI this past season for the Padres. He also struck out 172 times, fourth-most in baseball.

Kotsay, 24, led the National League with 678 at-bats for the Marlins last season, hitting .299 while stealing 21 bases. He won the Gold Glove as a right fielder in 1999, but is expected to compete for San Diego's starting job in center.

"Don't read too much into this," General Manager Jack McKeon said. "We got ourselves an incredible minor league player and an outfielder who can start right away for us."

The move saves the Padres almost $10 million in payroll, money that could be used to re-sign Greg Maddux or Roberto Alomar this off-season. Both declared for free agency after Maddux could not come to terms on an extension and Alomar exercised an opt-out in his contract. Both figure to command annual salaries in excess of $10 million.

Padres Trade Klesko, Boone for Maddux, Garland

Monday -- January 29th, 2001

Back So Soon?
Cubs trade Maddux back to Padres one month after signing



SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- In a stunning off-season twist, the San Diego Padres have reacquired Greg Maddux from the Chicago Cubs in a seven-player swap that will send Ryan Klesko and Bret Boone to the Windy City. The Padres also receive pitcher Jon Garland for a trio of minor leaguers.

"We just couldn't stand the thought of losing Maddux," San Diego GM Jack McKeon said. "When Joan Kroc gave us the thumbs up to increase our payroll, I started talking to the Cubs, and luckily Greg signed off on it."

As part of the deal, the Cubs agreed to pay 35% of Maddux's new $12.8 million salary. With 270 lifetime wins, it also means that Maddux will get the chance to win his 300th career game in a Padre uniform.

"San Diego was so professional throughout the entire process," Maddux said. "Even when I told them that I was going to be signing with the Cubs, they wished me nothing but the best. I think this is a win-win for everyone."

The Padres had been holding on to Boone as a fail safe if the team were to lose Roberto Alomar in free agency, but when they inked Alomar to a new contract, the utility infielder became expendable. The trade of Klesko will thrust Derrek Lee into a long-awaited starting role at first base for San Diego.
