Here is some rumors and news from today-
-Lets start off with some Peavy news. Peavy would need "a lot of convincing" to go to an AL team. Sorry Yankees. Houston has reportedly made a call to the Padres about Peavy but none of the organizations have talked players or deals, just media speculation. Buster Onley thinks Peavy will be dealt in the "weeks ahead." I think he will get dealt by December 1st. Some other good news on the Peavy front is the Padres have stated that they want 2 young pitchers and a MLB near ready CF to patrol large Petco Field. The reason this is good news is the Cubs have several good young pitchers( Sean Marshall, Angel Guzman, Jeff Samardzija, Randy Wells, Donald Veal, Jose Ceda, Kevin Hart, Rich Hill, just to name a few). The Cubs also have several young speedy outfielders that would be ideal for Petco( Felix Pie, Sam Fuld, Andres Torres, Josh Kroeger , and Tyler Colvin). So the Cubs have the goods that the Padres are looking for. I would start off by offering them Kevin Hart, Rich Hill, and Felix Pie and hope they bite!
- It seems the Jim Hendry 3 year extension is very close according to Bruce Miles of the Daily Herald and Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times. Good for the Cubs and Hendry!
- MLBTR has their "Offseason Outlook: Chicago Cubs" post on their site today. I suggest you check it out!
See how it compares to mine-
