Heyman On Eckstein, Peavy, Pedro

SI.com's Jon Heyman has a new column up...

  • The Mets apparently had interest last winter in signing David Eckstein as a backup for $1-2MM, but he preferred to take $850K to start at second base for the Padres.
  • Heyman looks at the Jake Peavy situation.  He learned that new CEO Jeff Moorad "didn't believe the economic downturn and slumping late-winter market would inhibit suitors for Peavy, who has $63 million and four years left on his contract."  That said, we know Moorad is willing to keep Peavy this year.  And Peavy may be happiest in San Diego, according to Heyman.
  • Pedro Martinez has fielded calls from several teams since the season began.  Heyman speculates on the Dodgers, Indians, Phillies, Brewers, Pirates, D'Backs, and Mets as possibilities.  And what about the Cardinals, who just lost Chris Carpenter for a while?
