Pads Gunning for Sheff?

From Ken Rosenthal at

The lingering question is whether the Padres will further boost their offense by trading for Braves second baseman Marcus Giles and Yankees outfielder Gary Sheffield....

The Padres might prefer a free-agent option to Giles, major-league sources say, while the Yankees have balked at their offer of right-handed reliever Scott Linebrink for Sheffield.

And this was before Lady Drew opted out of his contract. But don't be surprised if Drew ends up back in the NL West, a division in which just about every team could use him...

...even the Dodgers. From Ken Gurnick's article at

Drew's agent, Scott Boras, said the move was a "business decision" and that Drew would like to discuss a new contract with the Dodgers.

Hmmm, with that injury history? I hope not.
