Are the Indians looking to sell?

Hey everyone, visiting semi-fan (I jumped on the bandwagon a few years ago) and die-hard Padres fan who finds myself in a very unusual situation: The Padres haven't opened with torrential suckage. Naturally, this has gotten hopes high (prematurely, perhaps, but all the same). Also adding to the hope is the statement by our new GM that the Padres will probably look to add at the deadline-- middle infield, starting pitching, and outfielders, the most common name bandied about being that of Roy Oswalt, with some mutters about an Adrian Gonzalez/Dustin Pedroia trade.

 

Not to rub it in, but you guys haven't been having a banner year thus far-- augmented by key players having slow starts. I'm curious if the Tribe is willing to sell? The Friars recently reloaded their farm system, and I'm sure they'd be willing to deal some projects, especially to acquire a real difference-maker.

 

I'm sure y'all are sick of hearing people ask to have Grady Sizemore, but I love this guy and think he'd be a great addition--especially if we could snag him at a reduced price due to his recent slump. What kind of recompense would you want if you were to trade him? Just out of curiosity.

 

Now, this is my first post here, so don't be too harsh-- I'm just checking in on some possibilities. Thoughts?
