Padres still haven't set 25 man Opening Day roster after noon deadline

The Padres and the rest of the MLB teams were supposed to have their 25 man roster set at noon today.  Padres GM A.J. Preller is a maverick as we know, so here we are several hours later, the only team without their Opening Day roster set.  It would seem that Preller is working on a last minute deal that would, both cut the roster and make the team favorites for a World Series Championship all at once.

Carlos Quentin and Cameron Maybin are two players the Padres have been to be shopping.

"I guess (Carlos) Quentin was a total failure at first. From what I’ve heard, they’ve been shopping Quentin and (Cameron) Maybin aggressively, even willing to pick up a chunk of money. Early on in the spring, Quentin was moving better. Best case, you get half a season out of him."

While noon appears to be a soft deadline, one would assume that they'd need to start the game tomorrow with only 25 guys, but I wouldn't put it past Preller to sneak a few more in the game.
