Cubs "seem" to be Peavy front-runners....

Padres GM Kevin Towers on XPRS-AM (Double XX SportsRadio) Monday afternoon...

Some highlights...Towers implies that Jim Hendry is the GM that he has talked with the most....saying that the Cubs -- "at this moment don't quite match up with what his needs are" -- but  he wants to "consider expanding talks to a third team."

He implies that right now, he's asking for a lot from the Cubs...and he realizes that "such a trade wouldn't work for Chicago -- it wouldn't be worth it for them." 

Strangely enough, Towers says..."...the earlier we can get a trade done, the better..." But in the same breath he says...."...no rush, no time line."  (I interpret this as an implication he'd  like to get a deal done with the Cubs, and he's ready to wait until Hendry can find the proper trading partner)

Later in the interview, he said -- "If  the right deal doesn't happen, we'll start the season with Jake."

Afterwards, the hosts didn't take much stock in that assertion. I didn't, either. The Padres  want Peavy off the books, and the Pads will say anything to keep the fans with pitchforks away from Petco. I  thought Towers sounded weary...the hosts thought so too.....

My guess is eventually, Peavy's a Cub.

I'll take that meal, Al.
