According to the Union-Tribue out of San Deigo, Padres GM Kevin Towers is already in talks with some teams.
Towers said he has heard from clubs interested in trading for ace pitcher Jake Peavy. “We're having talks,” he said.
The GM said he wouldn't be surprised if the Peavy talks heat up next month.
Obviously, the Mets don't have much to trade out of the minor league system. Maybe a package of Luis Castillo, Aaron Heilman and Nick Evans can swing it (obviously joking).
Still, he won't cost as much as CC Sabathia, but the Mets already have an ace on their staff. I just can't see them adding another front-line starter while the bullpen is still a mess. But hey, you never know.
