Sounds like Norris wouldn't mind getting traded to San Francisco

Jon Paul Morosi was forced to wrest his attention away from the Tigers for a few days and came to Houston. While in town, with a steady eye on Detroit, he wrote about the possibility, nay, likelihood of Bud Norris getting traded.

I’ve seen stable, veteran players get moved to new organizations. Sometimes you don’t understand why it’s not you. So, it’s been tough ... Now that my name’s the one popping up, it’s a little different feeling. 

That's interesting. It sounds - from that quote, admittedly taken a little bit out of context - like Bud Norris' feelings were a little hurt when he wasn't included in a trade. When Morosi mentioned San Francisco as a possible destination, Norris peed a little bit:

It gives you goose bumps when you think about it. Obviously growing up there, being a big Giants fan — and I rooted for the A’s, too, in the area, but I was more of a Giants fan...It would be a dream come true for me to play for my childhood team.
