The San Diego Padres (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/clubhouse?team=sdg) have agreed to a one-year deal with free-agent outfielder Cliff Floyd (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?playerId=3019), according to a major-league source. The contract guarantees Floyd less than $1 million.
Floyd, 36, spent last season with Tampa Bay, where he primarily served as a designated hitter. He batted .258, with 11 homers and a .443 slugging percentage, in 246 at-bats

just the next in the line of aging veterans brought in to fill a roster spot...Floyd does have some pop but gets hurt a lot if my memory serves me right. Maybe he will see more time in right field if we send Giles packing, if not he is just gonna be a Pinch hitter, cause Adrian never takes days off.

Had to jettison former # 1 pick Matt Bush to get Floyd on the 40 man roster. Wow that was a wasted pick!

not only let go for Floyd, but he also had some sort of police altercation earlier this week with some high schoolers
