Jake Peavy Rumors: Friday

Chris De Luca of the Chicago Sun-Times has a few notes on the failed Jake Peavy-Cubs trade talks.

He says Kevin Towers kept putting Sean Marshall on the table, but the Cubs never agreed to it.  I received the same info in talking to a source yesterday (see the 5:02pm update).  Cubs GM Jim Hendry wasn't amused with Towers mentioning names of other teams' players to the media.

De Luca adds that it was the Cubs' 2010 payroll that was the real sticking point.  They would've added Peavy's $15MM, plus seen bumps for Alfonso Soriano, Ryan Dempster, and Kosuke Fukudome totaling $8MM.
