So much for the theory that Jake Peavy was only willing to be traded to a National League team:
“Boston was a place that I told the Padres I would certainly be interested in playing,” the 28-year-old said. “I don’t know if there were any talks. I gave the Padres a list and Boston was on that list. Boston was a place I told the Padres I would be interested in playing at. Set that straight for sure.” Full Count.
That, of course, doesn’t mean that the Chicago Cubs weren’t/aren’t his preferred destination, if he is to be traded. It just means that the possible pool might be quite larger than previously thought.
Of course, if he keeps pitching like he has been in the WBC, no one is going to want him anyway.
