Peavy and 40 Man Roster


-Here is a video on Peavy, pretty encouraging-


- The Cubs will have to make room on the 40 man roster if they are to sign Bako or add a utility guy like Nomar, Uribe, or Aurilia. My pick for a guy to be traded or cut is Ronny Cedeno and Rich Hill. Cedeno has been linked to the Padres, Mariners, Royals, and now the Pirates have some interest according to a baseball exec. I would like to see him traded for Heilman from the Mariners or Teahen of the Royals. I expect Bako to be signed to a minor league deal with an invite to Spring Training, I much rather have Koyie Hill as the backup.

- Andy Pettitte was signed by the Yankees for 5 million dollars that can reach 12 million with incentives. I would have loved for the Cubs to offer a similar deal but if the get Peavy or Sheets I would be happy.

Based on that video, if its true. The cubs wait to add Bako and Uribe/Millar/etc until they get Peavy... Why... they will trade Olson, Hart, etc who are players taking up spots on the 40 man roster. The cubs... after the trade, will be with about 38players taking up spots on the 40 man roster. Cubs trade cedeno for heilman which is back around 38, add bako and uribe/etc.
