"Another source said on Tuesday that Maddux (3-8, 4.21 ERA) would prefer to be traded to the Dodgers if he were to leave San Diego. Maddux, who went into Wednesday's game with 350 career victories, spent half a season with the Dodgers in 2006, going 6-3 with a 3.30 ERA in 12 starts. As far as trading within his own division, Towers has no qualms at all with dealing with another team in the National League West. "I personally have never been opposed to trading within the division," Towers said. "You can't have a fear of it or it will come back to bite you. If you have confidence in the input you're getting from your people and the player you're getting in return, you're fine."
