Obsessive Peavywatch: Kevin Towers is Talkative

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 […]

Where Peavywatch and Hendry Hearts Pitchers Meet

As we have previously suggested, now that Marquis has officially been moved, Jim Hendry is likely to resume serious talks with the San Diego Padres about Jake Peavy (EEE!). The Chicago Sun Times agrees, citing “those close to Hendry.” The article goes on to suggest that Derek Lowe is probably too expensive (fine), and that […]

Peavywatch: Non-Moorad Ownership Saying No to a Peavy Deal?

It’s a sad day in Peavywatch-land. First there’s Rosenthal’s suggestion that the Cubs have only a 10% chance of landing the ace pitcher from the San Diego Padres. And now there is a suggestion, that when the Cubs and Padres closed in on a Peavy deal at the GM meetings last month, it was the […]

Peavywatch: Cubs Have 10% Chance of Landing Jake Peavy

Fox sports’ baseball analyst – you know, that guy with all kinds of access but who is rarely right – Ken Rosenthal was on “Sports Central” last night on WGN radio to discuss, among other things, the Chicago Cubs recent moves and prospective moves. Though he talked at length about the Mark DeRosa trade and […]

2009 Draft Order and Free Agent Compensation

Go here for the 2009 Chicago Cubs Draft resource. This will include order, results, minor league designations, and articles. As more free agents sign, the 2009 draft order becomes closer to getting set. Right now, the Chicago Cubs still have their first round pick – Milton Bradley was a “Type B” free agent, so the […]

Aaron Miles and the Man He Replaces

Many years ago – well, two, I guess – when I was but a humble poster on Chicago Cubs message boards, I was absolutely incensed at one of Jim Hendry’s signings. The Cubs were looking for a second baseman to replace Todd Walker/Tony Womack/Neifi Perez/Horror. Walker had played relatively well in his time with the […]

Panic! Jake Peavy May Not Be Traded

The AP is reporting that Arizona Diamondbacks CEO Jeff Moorad resigned last night with the *express* purpose of trying to acquire an ownership interest in the San Diego Padres. Are you ready? PANIC!!! The only reason the Padres were so intent on dealing Jake Peavy was because of a serious cashflow problem. A new ownership […]

Adding Peavy and Bradley Would Make Cubs… 2nd Best?

The Chicago Cubs are expected to announce the signing of outfielder/crazy guy/great hitter Milton Bradley sometime next week; and with the trade of Mark DeRosa to the Cleveland Indians for three pitching prospects, it should be universally accepted that they are looking at resuming talks with the Padres about Jake Peavy. With two additions like […]

The Cubs Are Going to Re-Target Jake Peavy

Jim Hendry can say that trading Mark DeRosa to the Indians for three (mediocre) pitching prospects was made irrespective of any other efforts to acquire Jake Peavy. And he has. But he followed it up with: ”We certainly wouldn’t close the door on anything,” general manager Jim Hendry said when asked about the desire to […]
