Daily Friar 1.6.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

After a very quiet offseason so far, one had to begin to wonder if anyone was alive in the front office at all. However, yesterday we saw some semblance of a pulse come from the Padres brass. The news is that Josh Byrnes likes to talk. He has been talking to quite a few teams over the past few months about possible trades and whatnot. He had talks with the Tigers about Rick Porcello not too long ago and apparently he has been in contact with the Diamondbacks and Marlins regarding two power hitting outfielders. The articles will be below obviously regarding that. The thing to take away from all this right now is that they are just talks. Nothing has happened (yet) and even Corey Brock doesn’t think something will happen. A fan asked him on Twitter what are the chances the Padres land Giancarlo Stanton, and he responded with “none.” Very reassuring words from your Padres beat writer. Here are your links for today:

Marlins are shopping Giancarlo Stanton – Union Tribune

“It would take at least Gyroko and two other prospects the Marlins could control for six seasons – possibly either Liriano or Hedges plus a pitcher.”

Padres, DBacks discussed Upton, Kubel and Headley – MLBTR

“The Padres and D’Backs found no match in trade talks about Upton or Jason Kubel, reports Jack Magruder of San Diego doesn’t want to move Headley and they don’t have a spot for Kubel with Carlos Quentin on the roster.

Glen Miller gives his thoughts on the Upton and Headley talks – The Friarhood

“The potential move does make at least some sense on some levels but at this point I find it unlikely any deal involving those two players goes through this winter.”

MLB news follows below

Lance Berkman and the Rangers agree to deal –

“Berkman told on Saturday he had agreed to a one-year with deal with a vesting option for 2014 to be the designated hitter for the Rangers, pending a physical.”

It’s time for MLB to start talks about homosexuality in baseball – Fox Sports

“One day, perhaps not long from now, baseball will have an openly gay player. And the only way for the sport to live up to its transformative legacy is to encourage a candid, informed discussion on the subject until that moment arrives.”
