Well, Nolasco isn't comparable to Peavy but he's got positives Peavy doesn't (less contractual obligation, less injury risk, lower trade cost).
Other competing options on the market include Bud Norris and Lucas Harell of the Astros, Scott Feldman and Travis Wood of the flubs (who are both having good years, surprisingly), all good options that won't have a high price.
As more teams drop out, more will be available. The Angels might give up, putting someone like Jason Vargas out there. And depending on how it shakes out the next few weeks in the NL East, you can probably add Cliff Lee to the list.
