Padres interested in Guthrie...

Here's some trade speculation... Padres interested in Guthrie. Guts has said he likes San Diego as well.

The Padres are looking to add a starting pitcher, having discussed, among others, veteran right-handers Jake Westbrook (Indians) and Jeremy Guthrie (Orioles).

Could the Jon Morosi tweet from a week ago indicate a potential deal?

#Orioles have scouted #Padres system recently. Not clear if #SD has interest in Wigginton.

I'll start with AA RHP and Top 50 prospect Simon Castro.

They also have a fine AA SS in Drew Cumberland.

CF'er Blake Tekotte also went from High A to AA and has solid upside as well.

2B'man Logan Forsythe has not developed power, but should be a solid OBP guy and he projects to hit for a good average.

Though I'm doubtful that they'd deal him, mammoth 1B'man Kyle Blanks would be another great target.

I am unfamiliar with the Padres, is there a low level prospect that you thing Guts could be had for?

It's really hard to say what they'd offer and what we'd ask for. What you or I ask for may not be what AM asks for... so there's that.

For me, I'd ask for Blanks straight up for Guthrie... they would probably refuse that. Then I'd try Castro + Cumberland... etc.

Looks like Cumberland can't hit lefties to save his life. Which is to say, he'll fit right in with the Orioles.

Goodbye Guthrie and good riddance:cussing:

Not sure how any Orioles fan can feel disdain towards Guthrie. He's been one of the very few positive stories in recent history.

I bed he'd really excel in San Diego. I'd still root for him.

Guthrie is a pretty solid starting pitcher who is under team control for two more years. He's plainly worth as much or more than Sherrill was worth a year ago. If he goes to San Diego I'd bet on him posting a sub-4.00 ERA.

I agree with this.
