Giants Targeting Uggla, First Baseman?

The Giants are looking for some offensive help, and will try to acquire either a second baseman, most likely Dan Uggla, or a first baseman, probably in the form of Derrek Lee or Paul Konerko. Both first baseman have full no trade clauses, but might be willing to waive the clause because they would be moving closer to home. Because all three of those players had good offensive years, it would cost them a top starter, probably Matt Cain.

I doubt Lee or Konerko would waive their no-trade clause, considering they both made the playoffs, so Uggla is their best bet. However, I wouldn't put it past the Cubs or White Sox to at least ask their players about waiving the clause.
