Peavy Talks.

Here is the latest on Peavy.

- It seems that the Yankees are going to get involved now but Jake does not want to go to an AL club according to him and his agent.

- Towers said "Chicago didn't give us any deadline and I imagine we'll continue to talk, but it is definitely going to take a third team to get something done there" Dempster remains the be Jim Hendry's #1 priority but the Cubs will not go 5 years. IF the Cubs lose out on both, Randy Johnson looks like he will be in Cubbie blue.

- The San Diego Union- Tribune had this to says-

*****"Jake Peavy was in Puerto Rico last week with Hoffman, Young and several other ballplayer friends, including the Brewers' Ryan Braun and the Yankees' Derek Jeter. Another friend called Peavy to ask if he had heard that Peavy soon might be dealt to the Braves.

Peavy's response left one person present to conclude that Peavy, whose consent is needed for a trade, will not be going to Atlanta anytime soon, even if the Padres and Braves were to agree to a trade. "I think he wants to go to Chicago," the friend said.

Former Cubs stars Rick Sutcliffe and Mark Grace are friends of Peavy who speak fondly of their experiences with the Cubs.

I don't see why you guys keep liking TEAHEN. There is no up side the last 3 years his BA and OBP has
gone down. He's no better than Fukudome was last year. And not as good defence either.
R RBI OBP BA HR SB
Teahen 66 59 .313 .255 15 4
fukudo 79 58 .359 .257 10 12

And with all these free agents
IBANEZ
ABREU
BRADLEY
ANDERSON
DUNN
GRIFFY(OFFER ONE YEAR ONLY)
HINSKE
KOTSAY
NIXON

ANY LAWYERS OUT THERE
SEC is charging Mark Cuban with insider trading (Martha Stewart) if he is found guilty (jail time or not) would he still be allowed to own any sport team?

I think it would be more of a convenient excuse for the MLB owners to block him than a legal issue preventing him from owning the Cubs... cause its been reported all along that Cuban's youth and attitude will rub the "good ol boys" club the wrong way.
