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.
