KT refused to include Sean in the Brian Giles deal, and every GM that has asked about Sean has been told "No!" Now all the sudden he is trade bait, cus he might cost 1 Mill more. It doesn't make any sense. Plus there is no logical replacement for him within the organization, so they would have to acquire one via free agency anyway.
What will probably happen, because Towers has done this many times before, is that Sean will be offered a 3-4 yr reduced contract buying out his arbitration years. It will just happen a year before the organization planed on doing so. Trading him makes zero sense.
I agree with you completely that trading him makes zero sense, and I know living in SD makes you more qualified than me. I was just looking for a follow up explanation, rather than what you said before which was that it was simply not going to happen without giving an explanation. I've heard though that if Burroughs goes, they may have a logical replacement for him in Matthew Bush who they might move from short, although that wouldn't be right away.
