    Sportsradio 610 just reported that Morgan Ensberg has been traded to the Padres for a player to be named later. The Astros have agreed to pay part of Ensberg's salary as part of the deal.

    I'm sure the player we get will never end up playing for the Astros but still wtf are the Padres thinking even paying a part of Ensbergs salary?

    If we had just waived Ensberg, would we have still had to pay him? The Friars picking up part of the contract may be the best part of the deal.

    I'm pretty sure that all salaries are guaranteed in baseball. So had we just waived him, we would have been on the hook for his entire contract. I tend to agree with whoever felt that this player we will get in return probably won't ever see a major league field...but it is a way for us to get out of part of Ensberg's contract and for the Pads to take a shot at getting the Ensberg of old to re-emerge.

    The last time the Padres got a 3B from the Astros, he became an MVP.

    Maybe Tim Purpy has gone ahead and traded Hunter Pence for Dan Wheeler from Tampa Bay.

    It's not a bad idea, we need a setup man now for Lidge.

    :cool:

    OK; it's after 3pm. Whatever this press conference is about is done now, if it's about a trade at all.

    Enquiring, impatient, instant-gratification minds want to know!

    If we did make a trade, I hope we were not fleeced.

    If we traded Ensberg, the other team was definitely fleeced.
