According to Bob Nightengale, via MLB Trade Rumors...
The SF Giants are talking to the Padres about 3B Kevin Kouzmanoff, but SD wants more than OF Fred Lewis and IF Kevin Frandsen
Makes perfect sense. Why play Ryan Garko at first when you can trade for a lesser player to take his lineup spot? It's like that time someone I brought a turkey sandwich to work and someone said, "Hey, I'll sell you this turkey sandwich that I dropped on the floor! Only $5.00!", and I immediately agreed because it made too much sense to pass up.
Rumors like this make me sad, and they cause computers to crash.
