How about a little more Jake Peavy chatter, courtesy of Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune? Krasovic sums up the situation: Peavy and GM Kevin Towers hope the Padres will contend and trading the ace will not become an issue. But with Peavy earning nearly 30% of the payroll and the Padres looking questionable, there's a good chance this will come up again near the trade deadline.
Krasovic adds that the Dodgers and Cubs "interest both the Padres and Peavy." He says "a person close to Peavy said those two remain the most likely choices for a trade." Peavy still prefers the National League, though I can envision a potential match with the Angels a few months from now. Here on April 6th, what's your Peavy prediction?
