A year and a half ago, Joe Musgrove came home. Now, the Padres’ ace has ensured he’ll be staying at home in San Diego for a long, long time. The Padres and Musgrove on Monday reached a five-year extension that, per a source, is worth $100 million and would keep Musgrove in San Diego through 2027. Shortly after reaching that agreement, Musgrove, with his family on hand, spoke at a press conference on Monday afternoon at Petco Park.

“Me and my dad [were] kind of drawing this thing out back in high school, what it would look like,” said Musgrove, clad in a sharp green suit and white Louis Vuitton sneakers. “It was: Get to the big leagues, try to win a championship. Then come to San Diego and bring the first one here and finish my career here. … I couldn’t be happier.”
