MLB Rumors: Jake Peavy And The Chicago Cubs


Following yesterday's trade of 2B/OF Mark DeRosa to the Cleveland Indians for three minor league pitchers, Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune writes that the Chicago Cubs may revive the Jake Peavy talks and offers this potential package:

A combo platter of Jake Stevens [acquired in DeRosa deal], Ronny Cedeno, Felix Pie, Kevin Hart and Josh Vitters could interest the Padres, who are eager to get rid of Peavy's contract.

I don't know what is worse - that hypothetical trade proposal or Sullivan mentioning that Aaron Miles could bat lead-off for the Cubs.  Given the Cubs gave Miles two and $4.9 million yesterday while dealing a more effective DeRosa, I am scared for Cubs fans. Fortunately, the San Diego Tribune reports that Vitters and Hart were two propsects the Padres did expect to acquire in ealrier trade talks involving Jake Peavy.  Maybe throwing in a few more players in all the Padres want for the 2007 Cy Young winner.

Regardless of Jake Peavy trade speculation or Aaron Miles taking his no-pop/.329 OBP into the lead-off spot, all baseball sources agree the Cubs are ready to sign OF Milton Bradley to a multi-year deal.
