"Jake Peavy to the Braves?
Also from Jerry Crasnick on ESPN radio, also no link yet: the Padres are close to sending Jake Peavy to Atlanta for Marcus Giles, Horacio Ramirez and Jarrod Saltalamacchia. This would make some sense: Schuerholz has never been afraid to deal top-drawer prospects (of which Saltalamacchia used to unquestionably be, if he isn't after a weak 2006 at the plate) for impact players. And this does a lot of things for the Padres: fill their 2B hole, replace Peavy (kind of), and put another potentially solid catcher in the system now that George Kottaras is property of Boston. It also allows the Padres to keep Scott Linebrink or use him in a trade with the Red Sox.
For the Braves, it tells you that Schuerholz is going for it: one season out of the money isn't going to put him on some rebuilding regimen. I don't Peavy is enough to put them back up with the Mets, but he could certainly make things more interesting."

There goes any chance of us getting peavy or giles. Assuming this goes happens. Nice trade for the braves, peavy is the kind of guy who could get them back to the postseason.

Makes good sense, Giles is from San Diego.

I edited the title of this thread since this is still a rumor. Once it becomes official, I can change it back.

That's seems to be a very good trade for both parties.

I thought I had the question mark on the title, guess I forgot it. Thanks for fixing it.

Unless Peavy has a bad wing, it's an awful deal for the Padres.

I agree

Unless Peavy has a bad wing, it's an awful deal for the Padres.that is my take. The fact that the Pads are willing makes me think he is an arm injury waiting to happen.

that would be like the Reds sending Phillips/E. Ramirez/Votto

While this deal would look to leave the Padres a bit short in the starting pitching department, it would give them a prime 2B and catching prospect. If San Diego can go out and sign some pitchers this winter (supposedly they're near the top of the Barry Zito list), then I could see the deal working out from a team perspective.

Peavy to the Braves is the sort of move that used to elicit the "Oh no, they've got him" response from me (e.g. the rich get richer), but this sort of move terrifies me a lot less now that Leo Mazzone is in Baltimore.

Roger McDowell can teach him how to hock a magic loogy
