mlbtraderumors.com has been posting rumors which indicate that Peavy has a decent chance of being traded in the offseason due to SD's rebuild philosophy.

Any ideas as to where he might land? Most posters on that site are talking about the Cubs, Yankees & Braves but I think the Cubs/Yankees talk is more due to the amount of fans there that post to the site.

He won't be coming to AZ, that's for sure.

My gut feeling is Atlanta, if he stays in the NL. Otherwise, Boston.

What would be SD's priority to get in return ?

Talent? Laughing

My guess is they'll want at least one middle of the order bat who can play the OF, plus at least one solid pitching prospect... If the Braves give up one of Jason Heyward or Jordan Schafer, plus a couple of solid pitching prospects, I think they'll have a good shot at Peavy (who's from that region)

I'd think they want someone more established, no ?

I think they're going to shred that team and punt 2009.
There have been rumors of a) cutting the payroll and b) selling the team.
Dumping all expensive guys for minor league talent seems like a first step.

In that case, they are going to want to get 4 or 5 guys in return for Peavy. The bar was already set in the Haren trade. Wink

As I said, I don't see Peavy being traded to Arizona...

I heard someone say SD is going to want to package Khalil green to get rid of his salary as well... Atlanta is my guess as well.

Let me throw out Milwaukee as a possibility. The Brewers will have Sheets and Sabathia's salaries come off the books, will need to add at least one upper rotation type, and have dealt with the Padres in the past. I could see them making someone like Weeks available as a centerpiece to a deal. I think Peavy's signed through at least 2012 for $59 M (with an option/buyout for 2013), which actually makes him somewhat affordable in terms of the going rate for starting pitching.

The current Pads owner is being forced to sell 49 percent of the team due to a divorce settlement.

Talk here locally (I live in San Diego) is that they want to get some good young talent in return.

What's the Brewers farm like? I should remember from the discussion at the time of the Sabathia deal, but I don't recall whether LaPorta was one of a few good prospects or one of several.

LaPorta was traded for CC.

The Brewers have some talent, but I don't think they match up well with SD. The articles I've read say the Padres want a centerfielder who's ready for the majors soon and two pitching prospects who can step into the rotation in the near future. The Brewers don't have that.

ATL still makes the most sense, if they trade Schafer along with two of their solid pitching prospects (especially if they include Hanson). I think a lot of other teams will get involved in this, but in the end, my money's on the Braves. The Brewers are long long shots here.

Not to mention that I don't think Peavy would waive his no trade to go to MIL

So tying into Peavy, I was discussing the idea of a Peavy to Dbacks trade with a friend today. We basically agreed that the only way it would happen is if Scherzer was part of an approximate 3-player package that would go to the Padres. That made me think... would you trade 2 players + Scherzer for Peavy (for 3 years)?

I said no, not because a Webb-Peavy-Haren 1.2.3. wouldn't be ridiculous, but b/c I'm not entirely convinced that in that 3-year span of Peavy that his numbers would be a great improvement over what Scherzer could do in the next 3 years...

I would like to know your thoughts.

The Padres are rebuilding from the bottom up. I don't think they'd care about trading in their division if they get a greater return from a division rival than any other trade partner.

I do hope the Dodgers don't get involved, because I don't want to see the Padres become ridiculously better...
