San Diego Padres closer Heath Bell is still just that -- San Diego's closer.

While the Giants claimed Bell on trade waivers earlier in the day, Bell tweeted the latest news about his situation:

However, the teams have until 1 p.m. on Friday to work out a deal and Bell has neither a no-trade clause nor five and 10 rights allowing him to block a trade, so it's still possible.

IF the giants get Bell, does this mean "The Beard" is gonna be out longer than 15 days, if not would Bell except a set up roll. The Giants have one of the best bull pins in baseball, so where do thay go from here... move someone to the starting rotation, then thay hve to get rid of a starter[Zito] or do they trade someone from the pin?

or, the padres could just reward him to the giants, meaning they get nothing other than not having to honor his contract (this happened several years ago when the white sox claimed alex rios from the blue jays). however, that's not gonna happen.

they would have to work out a deal. you can't trade draft picks in baseball, so it would be players or cash. the padres would, however, get draft picks if they kept bell, offered arbitration, he declined and signed somewhere else.

What would they get (the Padres) from anyone claiming Bell off of waivers? Draft picks? Would the Giants lose anything?
