Meh, still like Brinson as the team's - espscially that roster's - fourth OF with the Cubs' coaching. My guess is the Padres aren't going to view their super cheap starting CF, now becoming known as one of the best defensive CFs and overall OFs in the league for super cheap, as Cubs fan would like them to. It's not like there are a ton of guys in the league who have Margot's current skillset, contract situation, and pedigree, sowhat's their incentive to take such a light haul? Margot on the trade market is someone who would attract pretty much every team in baseball
Some other weird, non-Brinson/Margot CF trade options:
Michael Gettys - Padres' AAA CF, longtime prospect had a .261 IsoSLG and hit 31 HRs playing mostly CF but all 3 OF spots
Bradley Zimmer - Freaky size/speed with good power, never healthy in the MLs maybe the Indians run out of patience
Delino Deshields Jr - Last two might be non-tender candidates?
Franklin Barretto/Jorge Mateo - A couple former or current top prospects lost in the shuffle? I feel like the A's have a bat to trade for, I like Treinen for the pen if they can get him cheap
