Peavy to Braves or Cubs?


Recommended Posts

05:43 AM ET 11.07 Jake Peavy is going to be a Brave or Cub in the next few weeks. Padre GM Kevin Towers said yesterday, "The train has left the station." Translation: There is no doubt his ace will be traded. Towers said he had moved far enough along in trade conversations during the just-completed GM meetings to be confident that Peavy will be dealt before the Dec. 8-11 Winter meetings in Las Vegas. The Braves remain the front-runner for Peavy. However, the Cubs are trying to obtain Peavy and re-sign Ryan Dempster. That would enable them to form a dynamic rotation, with that duo plus Rich Harden, Ted Lilly and Carlos Zambrano. The Dodgers also have weighed in on Peavy. But the Padres would expect a greater return on Peavy from a division competitor, and the Dodgers seem more focused on either retaining Derek Lowe or chasing CC Sabathia than trading for Peavy.
