Rumor Mill

  • Phil Nevin met with GM Kevin Towers and manager Bruce Bochy, in the wake of the trade that almost sent him to Milwaukee for Jeromy Burnitz, and said that he wants to stay with the Padres. It now looks like the Padres are unwilling to trade the affordable yet productive third baseman. (The Sporting News, 12/1/00)

  • With 20-year-old Sean Burroughs waiting in the wings, the Padres are fielding offers for third baseman Phil Nevin from as many as seven teams. San Diego is talking to Toronto (Vernon Wells), Milwaukee (Jermoy Burnitz), and Seattle (Brett Tomko or John Halama), as well as Boston, the Yankees, Philadelphia, and Houston about Nevin. (San Diego Union-Tribune, 11/7/00)
