Who wants Wil Myers

I’ve been beating this drum for a while now, but I’m going to continue saying it — the biggest priority for A.J. Preller should be trying to find a trade partner for Wil Myers.

And I personally think with where the budget is at, he really can’t do much else until he’s able to move Myers’ contract.

It would not be surprising at all if Preller is running around the Winter Meetings begging teams to take Myers.

And maybe that’s not fair to say of the outfielder. Myers is not a terrible player, but he is for what the Padres agreed to pay him.

I don’t care if they have to attach a top prospect to him, Preller needs to move him and as much money as he can to any team willing to take Myers.

Most likely it would have to be a rebuilding team that can take on some money and is looking for a good prospect or two.

Teams that fit that mold include the Detroit Tigers, Kansas City Royals (money may be a problem for them), Baltimore Orioles, Seattle Mariners, and maybe the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Preller needs to be beating down the door of all those GMs at the Winter Meetings trying to make something happen.
