His offense is questionable at this point. But he has shown a few signs of warming up since taking the week or so off. I'm not about to predict great things for him in this regard, but at least there's signs of life.
In other words, he's worth a shot if a team doesn't have to sell the farm to get him.
Hit it on the head.
I'm just not sure SD needs to make a move before the deadline. A solid 3B would be nice, but there just aren't that many to go around.
Isn't Joe Randa just an older version of Sean Burroughs, anyways? Maybe a little more power, but I don't see him as a significant upgrade. They would probably need to deal an OF to get anything decent back, and since Klesko and Giles both have big contracts, it would probably be X-Nad... and it would be a shame to give him up after he's finally starting to put it all together.
