Obsessive Peavywatch: Enter the Brewers

Chicago Cubs

Peter Gammons believes the Milwaukee Brewers will go after Jake Peavy when he undoubtedly becomes available later this year. While the source of his belief – current Brewer Bill Hall – likely has no more inside information into the matter than I do, the fit is there.

The Brewers rotation is thin, and they’re likely to be just competitive enough this year to be in the trade market midseason. Further, even after acquiring CC Sabathia midseason last year, the Brewer farm system is still incredibly deep. They’ve got the pieces – certainly moreso than the Cubs – to acquire a pitcher like Peavy.

Naturally, the Brewers front office is now denying the rumor, which means it’s totally true. Yikes.
