On Padilla

I don't want to top-post, but I am hoping to catch Jenthesherif's eye.  In the Zito met with us today.. diary, it was mentioned that talks have broken down.

I hope this is not the case, and I hope Padilla has folks in his corner that are looking out for his best interest.  One thing that always struck me about TO is that he is missing the opportunity to generate real wealth by developing a strong business foundation from his athletic success.  TO always seemed more interested in the value of the contract.  He does not seem to realize that there is much more money in endorsements and building a positive image in the community where you can then spring board into building successful businesses.  

I hear a lot about it being "about the money" with Padilla, and hope he realizes that this is a market where he could really establish himself and generate financial wealth beyond that of his baseball contract.   Poll on the right.. you want Padilla (yes/no)?
