Sources: Craig Counsell being pursued by the Padres

New, 28 comments

Secret Source tells us that the Padres have made offers to Craig Counsell and are interested in having him start at second base.

We probably remember Counsell best from his D-Backs days and most recently, he's been with the Brewers organization.

I for one would welcome Counsell with open arms flailing wildly and sporadically above my head.. 

[UPDATE] Thinking about it a bit more.... This could very easily be a situation where the Padres are looking to bring somebody in to really compete Matt Antonelli into finally taking the second base spot and leaving the option open for Counsell to actually play shortstop for us. If it works out that the younger guys take the middle infield, Counsell could provide a nice veteran utility bat off the bench.
