Linebrink for Glaus?

WestCoastBias recently made the following comment in response to an MLBTR posting:

Could Kevin Towers pull off a Linebrink for Glaus swap? That way Kouz could tear up in AAA for a full year. There's been rumbling in the past that the Padres have the money for a big trade and this could be it. KT could add a prospect to sweeten the deal. Chase Headley perhaps? It was rumored that Linebrink/Headley was offered for Sheffield so it's reasonable to expect that to be a solid bounty for Glaus as well.

This would be a trade that would add extremely valuable players to both sides. With Ryan out, JP will want a legitimate back of the bullpen arm and Linebrink can fill that. For the Padres, Glaus could be the power threat they need to go all the way. A 1-2 right side/left side punch by him and Gonzalez could be deadly and too tempting for KT to pass on.

I'm intrigued. As noted in the original posting, Glaus makes $10.75MM this year and $12.75MM in '08. Although injury prone, he's obviously reliable for big numbers and the Blue Jays are all but out of it. We've got the cash. Do we have the cojones?
