Mike Sweeney a Padre?

MLB Trade Rumors: Padres Eyeing Mike Sweeney:

The Padres "have expressed mild interest" in Mike Sweeney, according to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick.  The problem would be finding a fit for Sweeney.  First base or left field would be the logical choices but between the presence of Adrian Gonzalez and Sweeney's fragility, both seem a long shot.

At least we aren't talking about bringing  Mark Sweeney back. I'm not sure if I could handle that.

They also say that the X. Nady deal is moving very slowly.

I was listening to the Mighty XX last night and Matty V. was filling in for Darren Smith.  During the Werndell wire, Matty was just like "Can the Padres stop teasing us with X. Nady?  Just bring him back already!"  Lil' jbox moved when he heard Matty V's voice.
