I Can't Stop Thinking About Adrian Gonzalez

The Jake Peavy deal with the Cubs seems to be falling apart if not already fallen apart.  The Padres desperately seem to want to trade him to cut payroll.  The Padres are now clearly in a rebuild phase that is going to take many years before they return to being competative.  In this environment is there really any point in the Padres holding onto Adrian Gonzalez? 

Clearly the Padres are not going to just give away Jake Peavy and Adrian Gonzalez.  They are also likely to want more to agree to make a trade within the NL West.  All that said  is there now an opening for the Giants?  Do we have the trade chips to get both Peavy and Gonzalez?  If we do would it make sense to pull the trigger?

I think we do have the chips and a trade could be put togeather that would benifit both the Giants and the Padres.  Here are the pieces that I see that would interest the Padres:

Jonathan Sanchez and Travis Ishikawa  - Cheap Immediate Major League Replacements

Madison Bumgardner and Angel Villalona - Long Term Replacements

Nate Schierholtz - NL West Sweetner
