I saw this post on MLBTR about the Padres' outfield situation. Basically, they want a better left fielder to sure up their outfield. Immediately, I thought MATSUI! or Damon. Of course, the Yankees would have to keep part of their salary, but we could probably get a decent return, along with the added roster flexibility. MLBTR mentions Wilfredo Ledezma and Clay Hensley as possible trade candidates. I would be happy with either one of those guys as part of a package, but we would need more than one of those two. I have a feeling they wouldn't want to part with Kevin Kouzmanoff, but there's always a chance, considering he's blocking top prospect Chase Headley (I'm assuming Kouz could play first). Not saying anything will happen, but I think the Yankees should at least explore this.
