Padres Lock Up Gonzalez

The Padres and Adrian Gonzalez have agreed to a four year deal, worth 9.5 million dollars. He gets a $500,000 signing bonus, $500,000 this season, $750,000 in 2008, $3 million in 2009 and $4.75 million in 2010. The $5.5 million option for 2011 doesn't include a buyout, and he'll still be arbitration eligible if it's declined. This is a good deal for the Padres, especially while he is still cheap. Gonzalez hit .304 last year with 24 HR and 82 RBI with the Padres last season.
