Padres unlikely to add pitching(The San Diego Union-Tribune)
"I don't know if our two organizations match up. We really haven't had any discussions about Boomer since January. It doesn't look like he'll probably pitch in a game until the middle of March."
- Padres G.M. Kevin Towers

One Padres player the Red Sox inquired about this past offseason was leadoff man Dave Roberts, who two years ago became a catalyst in Boston's run to the World Series title. Towers has said he will keep Roberts, who was among the best leadoff men in the majors who made at least 400 plate appearances last year. Further, when the Padres and Roberts agreed to a one-year guarantee in December, Roberts received assurances that the club would retain him through at least June, said the player's agent, John Boggs.

"We have a verbal understanding that they won't trade him or think about trading him until the (July 31st) trading deadline. I've got a verbal understanding with Kevin Towers that Dave won't be traded . . . unless somebody wants him at the trading deadline. I'm under the understanding that won't change."

-"The Stealer's" agent

Of course they meant it at the time. It sounds like the Padres won't part with much to acquire Wells at this juncture, and will wait for him to disrupt the Sox clubhouse enough that he is handed to them.
