    Who else do the Pads have left in their system to deal for Contreras? I would guess he's going to command at least 2 VERY good prospects.

    Pads were going to pick up the next 2 years of that salary anyhow, I don't think that'd change.

    So the Pads STILL get Soto and don't have to part with that Dave and Buster Gift Card--I'd say it's a win!!
