Looks like Mick Jagger called this one. From the Boston Herald’s Michael Silverman.

There are rumors swirling that the Sox and San Diego Padres are in serious negotiations regarding Sox left-hander David Wells (above).

The Sox are interested in right-handed reliever Akinori Otsuka and outfielder Dave Roberts, while the Padres are intent on keeping Otsuka, especially with Trevor Hoffman likely gone.

The Padres do not intend to flip center fielder Mike Cameron, who they just acquired in a trade with the Mets. The Padres have wanted to acquire Cameron for some time and reportedly were relieved they didn™t have to give up Otsuka to get him.
