Red Sox claim Brian Giles

Looks to me like the Red Sox put the claim in to block the Rays and Angels who both could potentially use Giles as an extra outfielder in their post season runs. Taking into account the fact that Giles could block a trade with the Red Sox, this looks more like an Epstein metagame move as opposed to loading up the team.

I'd say pretty decent chance Giles stays with the Padres.
