The Mets say they aren't interested. The Padres say they would be fine with Walker. The Giants and RedSox are talking about starting rookies. Toronto seems to be in the market for a 2B but that is about it. The Nats could use a 2B but other than that I'm hard pressed to come up with a team that doesn't already have their starting 2B for next year.
Plus Durham and Belliard are still FA too.
I think Durham signed with the Giants, but Loretta is still out there too.
There seems to a surplus of 2B this year, with a lot of young 2B (Kendrick, Pedroia, etc.) getting the nod for next year.
It would make sense for the Padres to low ball Giles, as they could easily get Belliard or Loretta for similar and probably cheaper deals
