More news on the Peavy circus-
- Kevin Towers has now said that they want young controllable pitching and middle infielders package with together to get Peavy. There is no mention for a CF though I think Felix Pie could intrigue them. The reason they want middle infield help is so they can package Greene in with Peavy. Since Towers want middle infield help the Cubs could throw out some names like Cedeno, Font, Bobby Scales or even Theriot along with Pie and 2-3 good pitchers young pitchers. It is also stated that the Astros do not match up well considering Towers desire for young pitching. No word on what the Cubs could offer or if they have talked about a potential deal but it is still early and Peavy will not be dealt by tomorrow.
