It’s been about a week since San Diego Padres General Manager Kevin Towers declared that even if they started discussing a Jake Peavy trade with another team again, they would not be doing it publicly. Um, well…
Even now, with Hoffman seemingly out the door, the Padres remain open to trading Peavy, whose salary would chew up nearly 30 percent of the 2009 payroll, as long as it makes baseball sense. Towers has said a much-discussed proposal from the Cubs “would fill several holes” on the roster. signonsandiego.com.
As our friends at Wrigleyville23 said, let’s fill those holes.
