The Padres looking for offense, and here's why -- their RFers rank 24th (among 30 teams in OPS), CFers rank 25th, LFers 30th [.]They would seem to match up well with KC, which is willing to deal either David DeJesus (a very high price) or Jose Guillen (KC will eat $).
The two sides seem to match up.
From the Royals perspective, here are a couple of good articles from Royals Review on Scott Podsednik and Jose Guillen. They are both considered trade candidates (as most players are for something). But I don't think the "stabilizing but still bad" description is a good thing.
