Greene: A Padre for life?
There’s been a lot of speculation this winter about Khalil Greene’s future in San Diego, especially after his agent balked at offers of three and four years offer from the team, instead opting for a two-year deal for $11 million that will keep him from ever having to go to arbitration.
The implication, publicly, at least, was that Greene might be looking to bolt for greener pastures and possibly play close to his home in South Carolina. Well, guess again.
Greene talked to reported on Monday and went as far to say that "there’s nowhere else where I would want to play than San Diego."
Greene was the Padres’ MVP for 2007, hitting .254 with 27 home runs and 97 RBI in a career-high 153 games. He also had the highest fielding percentage among NL shortstops (.984) who played in 108 or more games.
So there you have it. We’ll have more on the site a little later about Greene.
