Padres Likely To Sell

The Padres have lost eight in a row, slipping to 9.5 games out in the NL West.  CEO Sandy Alderson says "it's probably easier to see us as sellers at this point."  He added that they could still look to buy if the Padres can creep up to 6.5 games out by the break (which begins July 14th).  Here's another look at the team's top trade chips:

  • Tim Sullivan says southpaw starter Randy Wolf is "almost certainly gone."  Wolf was having a very similar season in '07 but was done by July 3rd.  Aside from health concerns, Wolf has a 14-team no-trade clause that includes many Midwest clubs.  The Phillies, Yankees, or Mets could make sense.
  • Greg Maddux isn't talking much about whether he'd waive his no-trade clause.  Fans have speculated he could go back to Atlanta or Chicago.
  • Brian Giles wants to stay in San Diego, and can veto trades to eight teams.  He also gets a salary boost if traded.  Would Oakland be a fit?
