The Padres have reportedly been shopping shortstop Khalil Greene to several teams. One team is the Angels, who may be willing to part with Reggie Willits in a trade. Acquiring Willits would give them the long term outfielder they need. Many think the Padres could also land Erik Aybar, who could definitely help the Padres as well. In 136 games, Willits hit .293 with 0 HR, 34 RBI, 27 SB, and an OBP of .391. He would make for a great leadoff guy for the Padres, and a solid center fielder when Jim Edmonds leaves. Greene, who batted .254 with 27 HR and 97 RBI, is also drawing interest from the Cubs, Cardinals, Red Sox, and Orioles.
