Giants beat writer Hank Schulman confirms what several others have reported that the Giants are interested in Royals OF Scott Podsednik. Several outlets have reported that three NL West teams -- Giants, Dodgers and Padres -- are in the running for Podsednik.
Schulman now reports that the Dodgers may be the team to watch in this.
Source: Giants are in on Podsednik, but the team making the strongest push is the Dodgers, who fear they won't get much more help from Manny
The Giants were linked to David DeJesus before his injury as well as Jose Guillen.
No word on the Padres interest although we did hear yesterday that they're "not a fit" for Podsednik.
The way it's going someone will offer up a package enough to get Podsednik and that someone will be from the NL West. However, with 72 hours remaining until the baseball trade deadline date, anything can (and will) happen.
