Anyone hear how Burroughs has responded to his "suposedly" succesful medial meniscus surgery?
Have not seen anything on any websites.

Cheers,

ANSWER TO OWN QUESTION

Read that he has full range of motion today and he also qualifies for arbitration. Look for Burroughs to be traded before 2005 season.

why do you say that. Rotoworld says the likelyhood of him being traded increased now that he became a super two.

Just because rotoworld says it, does not make it true. Its pure speculation on their behalf. Kevin Towers loves "Chop-Chop" (if you have ever seen him run you will understand). 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.

The Nady factor

Agreed, I could have explained better the first time, sorry ..

a little follow up on this ...

November 11, 2004 wrote: Towers said he's in no rush to enlist Xavier Nady as a third baseman, which would require trading Sean Burroughs.
"Absolutely not," Towers said. "Sean's name's been out there (in trade speculation) since he's been a Padre. He's a very good young player. The rest of the industry recognizes it, and we're often asked what it would take for us to move him. For somebody like Sean Burroughs, it would have to be a pretty good deal."

Nady showed decent skills as a third baseman at Cal, and again during the Instructional League last month.

"He's got a chance there," said Tye Waller, the Padres' director of player development. Nady's throwing accuracy from third is in question.

Towers said Nady, who will turn 26 on Sunday, could see spot duty at third.

"Nady is a pretty good fit as a fourth outfielder," Towers said. "We should be able to get him at-bats as an extra outfielder and as an extra corner infielder."
