Giles won't be a Red Sox

Brian Giles won't be a Red Sox this season ... or, probably, ever:

Giles exercised his no-trade clause earlier this afternoon, nixing the waiver claim the Red Sox had made on the Padres’ 37-year-old left-handed hitting outfielder, according to a baseball source.

The primary factor was family reasons, as Giles wants to remain close to his children, who live in San Diego.
