Sweeney, Clark both gone

Mike Sweeney has agreed to terms for a minor league deal with the A's, where he'll probably DH and somehow injure himself.  Tony Clark signed a one-year deal with the Padres for 900K.  He'll probably suck there, seeing as SD has pretty much the only park out there that drains more power than ours does.  

As far as I'm concerned, that's two more bullets dodged this offseason.  Sweeney would have probably thrown out his back on the first day of actually playing a position with us.  I still don't get how you can get injured by getting up every hour or so and swinging a bat a few times and running the few times you actually hit the ball. And as for Clark, he probably would've been mediocre with us, but it still would've been a waste of space and money on our roster because even him at his best wouldn't make us a competing team unless we were in the NL Central.  We might as well field someone that would probably suck but might turn out to be good and stick with the team long term than add yet another short-term solution.  Thoughts?
