Mark Prior signs with the Padres

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=3168825

Mark Prior has signed a 1 year deal with the Padres.  I think this is a great signing.  It is exactly the sort of smart move which a team needs to make.  If Prior is healthy for any somewhat extended part of the season, and performs the way he's capable of, I think this is would be one of the biggest value signings in the game this offseason.

I do wonder about the shape of Prior's shoulder, though.  I'd read reports of it's uncertain status as scaring teams off. I wonder just how Prior will return in 2008, if at all.

Still, the risk/reward on this deal is fabulous, and you have to like this signing for San Diego.
