Assuming they don't get both (gulp!), who would you rather see as a Dodger? Peavy or Sabathia? At least Peavy would -- presumably -- cost them some of their better young players.

We've hopped on Peavey's ass a few times. I'd rather have Scherzer.

Quote:
The executives spoken to say they anticipate a Braves package being built around pitcher Tommy Hanson and outfielder Jordan Schafer, who both peaked at Double-A last year, plus a middle infielder, either shortstop Yunel Escobar or second baseman Kelly Johnson.

Another AL GM said, "That is really a good deal if San Diego can make it."



Meh. I called this like two weeks ago

KLaw on the Peavy rumors

http://insider.espn.go.com/espn/blog/index?entryID=3659188&searchName=law_keith&campaign=rsssrch&source=law_keith

Quote:
That package includes Atlanta's top pitching prospect (Hanson), an established big-league middle infielder (Escobar or Johnson), and another of Atlanta's top five prospects (Schafer). It's completely out of line with the prices paid for other top-flight starters in the last two years, including the most directly comparable deal in Haren, where the A's took bulk prospects over established major-league players. And that's before we consider the questions about Peavy's elbow.

If San Diego is looking for that much big-league and prospect value in return for Peavy, odds are he'll still be a Padre at Christmas. The Padres have an opportunity to move quickly here as the lone seller before free agency brings a flood of high-end pitching, as Sabathia, A.J. Burnett, Derek Lowe, Ryan Dempster, and Oliver Perez will all be available without requiring teams to give up any prospects at all. If the take from Sherman's sources on the asking price is accurate, the Padres will have to lower their demands to get a deal done -- and Padre fans should lower their expectations as well.


Other than that conclusion, he takes a look at the Haren/Sabathia/Harden/Santana trades. Likens a possible Peavy deal most to the Haren deal.
Says Peavy is more of a ? mark than Haren was since he experienced an injury, declining K rates, rising BB rates, and takes advantage of pitching half his games at Petco.
