MLB Trade Rumor: Jake Peavy Traded To Chicago

San Diego Padres' ace Jake Peavy is rumored to be on his way to the south side of Chicago pending his agreement to waive his no trade clause. In return, the Padres will receive four players headed by pitchers Clayton Richard and Aaron Poreda and two PTBNLs.

My reaction is meh. The Padres are in need of middle infield and outfield help. If one of the PTBNLs is 2B/SS Gordham Beckham then I love the deal. Given Beckham is inelgible to be traded sooner than one year after being drafted, this is the thread to which Padres' fans will cling because the two pitchers are not going to change the offensive dynamic of the team.
