Let me guess: it involves Ken Caminiti, Andujar Cedeno, Steve Finley, Roberto Petagine, Brian Williams, Derek Bell, Doug Brocail, Ricky Gutierrez, the bad Pedro Martinez, Phil Plantier and Craig Shipley? No? Well, dang:

The Padres are said to be open for business, with Justin Upton, Craig Kimbrel, Tyson Ross, James Shields and Andrew Cashner, at least, available. The Astros have already made a huge splash at the deadline adding Scott Kazmir and Carlos Gonzalez Gomez. They are, apparently, loading for bear. Or Angels.
