Brian Giles trade rumor

Well, that would be a good trade for San Diego. But for that trade to work Brian Giles would have to clear waivers. How likely is that to happen? I would like to see that trade though and I'm sure it would make wrveres a very happy man. He could sit his kids in front of the TV and let them watch him hit one homer after the other.

We've gone through this before in prior posts. San Diego has first waiver position, so Giles doesn't have to clear waivers for the trade to go through.

I thought the main reason the Pirates were trading Giles was to get out from under Jason Kendall's terrible contract (still owed $42 million for the next 4 years), as an incentive for a team to take Kendall. If the Padres aren't taking Kendall, the Pirates shouldn't trade them Giles.

Thats what I heard as well. Based on what i've heard, I wouldn't expect this to deal to go through without Jason Kendall.

And comeon wrveres, I like Gammons! ;-D :-b
