Re: Official Trade Deadline Thread
I liked Peavy when he played for the Pads. He was a fiece competitor who gave it everything he had. However, he strikes me as a max effort pitcher whose best days are now behind him. With Arroyo in his last contract year, Bailey in his next to last, Latos the year after that, and Cueto's durability in some question, the last thing the Reds need to do is trade a good young pitcher for past performance, a high price tag and a short term contract they are not likely to want to extend.
IMO, the biggest difference maker for the Reds would be a bullpen arm. If Peavy would accept a move to the pen and his cost were not too high, I would consider that deal. In view of the salary being taken on, I certainly would not give up significant major league players or prospects. The possibility of such a trade seems unlikely to me.
