    Peavy talks are back on for the Cubs

    Talks are heating up once again. Now that the sale of the Cubs looms near, Hendry will soon be back in negotiations with the Padres.

    Re: Peavy talks are back on for the Cubs

    The last article out here was a week ago and mentioned that the Cubs were trying to pull together the pieces to acquire Peavy. The Pads are going to be bad this year, it would make sense for them to dump his salary if they can get what they want. If they don't get proper value they'll just keep him for opening day. He's the only player that was a draw last year.

    Re: Peavy talks are back on for the Cubs

    My only concern is that Peavy is a fly ball pitcher. If the wind is blowin' out he is going to get lit up. I would stick with Marshall in the 5 spot.

    Would a former Cy Young winner really be the #5 starter? Man the Cubs must be stacked with pitching.

    Re: Peavy talks are back on for the Cubs

    He would probably be the #2 (Big Z, Peavy, Lilly, Dempster, Harden) but I like the idea of having two lefties and Marshall, I think, is going to have a break-out year this season. (Big Z, Lilly, Demp., Harden and Marshall).

    Re: Peavy talks are back on for the Cubs

    If the Cubs got Peavy he would be the ace.

    Peavy
    Harden
    Zambrano
    Dempster
    Lilly

    Thats just sick.

    Re: Peavy talks are back on for the Cubs

    Almost as good as

    Dave Stewert
    Mike Moore
    Bob Welch
    Storm Davis
    Todd Burns




    If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can find
    them - maybe you can hire: The A-Team.

    This Cubs team will actually have two aces. Zambrano your Ace of Hearts(on his sleeve) and Peavy the Ace of Diamonds(Cy Young).
    Zambrano will get the Opening Day start. He'll lose or get a no decision but he will be there opening day.
    Peavy will be the #2 starter then Lilly and Dempster.
    Harden is to fragile to be the #2 put him at 5 and if he misses a start throw in Marshall or Gaudin.

    This looks ideal to me. I like it a lot! Go get Peavy, Cubbies!

    If we pull this off, hopes will be off the chart for this season!


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Peavy talks are back on for the Cubs

    If we pull off this trade for peavy i will be extatic....our offensive may of lost the post season for us but with a pitching staff like that we wont need much offense...that is as long as the bullpen does its job!!

    Re: Peavy talks are back on for the Cubs

    Absolutely no way the Cubs would've traded for Garrett Olsen, if they didn't intend on making the Peavy deal...only a couple more months before "Go Cubs Go" becomes my ringtone again!

    Re: Peavy talks are back on for the Cubs

    They're going after him... Let's hope they get him!!! SICK rotation...

    oh... and Harden will NOT be the #5... He's potentially got the best or 2nd best(if we get peavy) stuff in the staff.
