Seems like the Braves are the early leaders in the Jake Peavy trade talks.
According to MLB.com, the Braves are preparing a package of players to pitch to the Padres in return for the 2007 Cy Young winner. Peavy has a no-trade clause, but is said to be open to waiving it to play in Atlanta. Peavy is from Alabama.
A bunch of minor league prospect have been rumored, along with players like Kelly Johnson or Yunel Escobar.
The Braves seem poised for a good year, as they have a bevy of prospects who are just about major league ready. Watch out for them next season.
I really hope they don't land Peavy. I'd be much happier to see the Yankees trade for the 27-year-old. Obviously, I'd prefer the Mets, but I don't think they have the minor league talent to pull that off.
