    Re: What's it going to take to win the Central?

    Bailey, Alonso, Stubbs, Frazier, Moloney Give them 4 of our top 5 prospects "NO WAY"

    Sure I'd love to get Peavy for our rotation but two problems arise; First, his contract is heavily waited toward the back-end, which leaves very little leeway in negotiating long-term contracts for our core young players. Secondly, Peavy would not waive his no-trade clause to be shipped to Cincinnati. He's a great pitcher but I think the chasm they call Petco deflates his statistics. If we were the Cubs or Cardinals he'd probably think long and hard, but we are not, so obtaining him is highly unlikely and for that package I wouldn't want him.

    What would Hairston bring that the the table that we don't already have on this team or available at AAA, nothing, so I'd pass on him as well.
