San Diego Padres trade short stop Khalil Greene to St. Louis Cardinals for someone or another. We'll figure it out later. Get him away from us.

And so it begins. Reports tell us that Khalil is moving on to St. Louis for whoever the Cardinals might be able to give us later that won't cost us any money. Sure. We'll take that bag of maple bats. Why not?

Greene is due $6.5 million next season. It is unknown whether the Padres assumed any of his remaining salary in the deal.

My guess is, oh hell no. Isn't it a scary thing what the economy will do to you? Trading away short stops who haven't quite lived up to promise to St. Louis? Something about this is vaguely familiar
