Can You Stand Another Peavy Update?

http://www.sportsline.com/mcc/blogs/entry/6270335/11665079

The latest news, the Braves and Padres are extremely close, though some speculate that Peavy prefers coming to the Cubs.

Under terms of the deal discussed by the Braves and Padres, San Diego would receive shortstop Yunel Escobar, Class A outfielder Gorkys Hernandez, one of two starting pitchers -- Charlie Morton or Jo-Jo Reyes -- and either relieverBlaine Boyer or one of two minor-league left-handers (one of which is believed to be Jeff Locke).

 

However, now the spotlight is close to swinging to Peavy, whose preference is said to be in Chicago with the Cubs. However, internally, the Padres view the Cubs' offer -- believed to include outfielder Felix Pie, infielder Ronny Cedenoand left-hander Sean Marshall, as being nowhere close to that of the Braves.

He's right, that deal is nowhere near the Braves offer. So the Cubs only hope, as many have maintained all along, is that Peavy flat out requests a trade to the Chicago Cubs.

This tidbit is buried in the post:

The Braves have been pressuring the Padres for an answer by Friday, when the free agent market opens, because they need at least two starters -- and they want to know whether Peavy will be a Brave before they dive in. They are expected to pursue A.J. Burnett, Ryan Dempster and others -- and sign maybe one if they acquire Peavy, and two if they don't.

How Ironic would that be? Dempster and Peavy together.....in Atlanta.  I still dont think Peavy going to Atlanta makes them a playoff team, theyve got a ways to go to catch the Mets and Phillies.

Hopefully this will be resolved soon, for all our sakes.
