Trade Partner Target: Texas Rangers

Trading seems to be on everyone's brain way too much, so I apologize in advance if this diary treads some well-worn ground.  I was very happy with the recent draft and if more than a few baseball writers consider Buster Posey a "sure thing" and the most ready prospect, then we didn't do too shabbily.

In looking at the 2009 and beyond plans for the Giants, and trying to pick up more hitting, Texas seems to stand out as a good trade partner from a player suitability perspective.  Texas needs pitching, which the Giants have in spades.  Moreover, they have star players at several spots (Michael Young, Josh Hamilton, etc.) which may be blocking some prospects that could be unblocked coming here (Ok, Hamilton is a star, but isn't blocking anyone that we can use, given he plays CF).

I don't know too much about the Texas farm system, only that they have been stockpiling prospects recently (taking Smoak who was quite popular amongst the McCoven).  German Duran is their top 2nd base prospect.  Is it feasible that we might be able to get him and some other prospects by dangling some pitching their way?
