Paul Sullivan's article in today's San Diego Union-Tribune talks about the Padres wanting to add an impact bat, along the lines of Corey Hart or Lance Berkman.
Closer Heath Bell, on Berkman:
“I think a change of scenery would be good for him. We’ve done worse (defensively) with the outfield position. I don’t think he could hurt us that much. He could play there four days a week and Adrian (Gonzalez) could get a day off (at first base) once a week.”
