The article reports that free-agent RF Brian Giles agreed to a three-year, $30 million contract with the San Diego Padres. His deal with the Padres, which includes a club option for a fourth year, maxes out at $36 million. The baseball teams Toronto Blue Jays, New York Yankees and Cleveland Indians also pursued Giles, whose on-base plus slugging percentage in road games was the sixth highest in the majors last season. Next on the baseball team Chicago White Sox's wish list: a free-agent infielder who can play third base and bat second. That would enable 2B Tadahito Iguchi to hit lower in the order.
