    Peavy talks ...possible

    Now that Marquis is gone and the CUBS opened up some more cash, we could still go after Peavy. The Padres are looking for a middle infielder and a starting pitcher to start.

    Cubs could trade Sean Marshall (SP), Jeff Stevens (SP), and Ronny Cedeno (MI) for him

    Wouldn't this just add to the excitement and then in the end lead to a bigger let down?

    Re: Peavy talks ...possible

    Would be great though

    Zambrano, Harden, Peavy, Dempster, and Lilly -
    then having *Gregg, Samardzija, Cotts, Wuertz, Gaudin to relief with Marmol and *Gregg closing

    Cubs continue to look for pitching; Peavy in focus? :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Cubs

    Rotoworld said the new Pads ownership isn't as worried about moving Peavy, so their asking price could be even higher.

    The money that was freed up by dumping the contracts of DeRosa and Marquis went toward signing CAMB, as he shall now be called. Peavy might end up with the Cubs, but it won't be because the club has extra cash.

    Yep, the Padres sale probably puts any trade on hold until the new owner is in place.

    I don't see why they can't afford Lowe? Peavy would be just as spendy even after the trade I would think.

    Pettite on the other hand, is well, old...and off the juice, not really sure he is worth a whole lot. I wouldn't mind giving him a shot though!

    well lowe thinks hes worth 5 years and $80 million. he wont get close to that from the cubs. I would really like to see pettite. Tim Redding was a decent starter for the nationals...
