No closer to signing a pitcher. The Padres are apparently
talking to free agents Joe Saunders and Brett Myers. The Tigers could be losing
interest in trading Rick Porcello.
The Twins have been one of the other teams tied to Myers,
while Center says Minnesota, Baltimore and the New York Mets have also
expressed interest in Saunders.
Beyond Saunders and Myers, the Padres are reconsidering a
pursuit of Detroit Tigers starter Rick Porcello. The right-hander reportedly became
available when the Tigers re-signed Anibal Sanchez.
So far this offseason the Padres have been tied to several
starters in their pursuit of additional arms. Before they signed elsewhere, San
Diego expressed interest in Edwin Jackson and Dan Haren.

Yet another quiet day here in sunny San Diego. I am just holding out to get to January where I think the Padres will be making a few moves to help solidify a roster by the time spring training comes along.
