The Big Tease

With proposed Jake Peavy to the Chicago Cubs losing steam on the 3rd day of the winter meetings, some Cubs fans have to wonder if the trade will go the way of the dinosaur, much like the Brian Roberts talk of 2007.

Right now, the Cubs don't need Peavy. The truly don't. He would be a luxury on this team. Not matter how you look at it, even if Ryan Dempster regress' a little, the Cubs will have the best rotation in the NL Central next season. But when you can add a pitcher of Peavy's caliber, a former Cy Young winner, sometimes you just have to pull that trigger. Sometimes, you have to mortgage the future a bit. This wouldn't be another Brock for Broglio trade here. At least, you hope it wouldn't.

As far as the Chicago White Sox? All seems to be quiet. Not a peep, not a whisper, nothing. One has to wonder if Kenny Williams has even made a phone call or two.
