Peavy trade discussions include Red Sox Middlebrooks.
Hahn also could keep Peavy, a leader on the pitching staff, and Rios, while trying to rebuild the roster in other areas. There's no financial necessity for Hahn to move these higher-salaried veterans.
At least 10 scouts already on hand Wednesday at U.S. Cellular Field.

Keep trolling. You are asking for a vacation. It's "bona fide" also.

That's funny considering that this time last year, the Sox were set to aquire Youkilis from Boston because Middlebrooks was waiting in the wings to take over for him.

Middlebrooks looks like a big bust. He also Ks too much and rarely walks...exactly what we don't need. Pass on him as a centerpiece for Peavy.

Peavy is not an ace, was not the best guy on the market, will not net us a package of prospects close to what Garza got, and it's not like I'm the only one saying it. I so sick and tired of being called a troll or even a cubs fan for stating my opinion, which is an opinion being mentioned nationally by several people every day. Yeah, that last comment is sarcastic. But with the way people are ****ting on me, I'm gonna say it with a little attitude. Because I'm not the one who's wrong.

Just save the nose rubbing til after the trade...and then we'll know who's right.
In the meantime, what does Atlanta (team of interest #3, 4 if you count Oakland, which I don't) have in the way of prospects, as they seem to be in the game now.

Jose Peraza, a low A shortstop, might be a match

The Braves farm isn't very good currently. Especially position prospect-wise. Boston/St Louis/Arizona have the best matches.

Hopefully the Braves will be willing to overpay, for the somewhat local kid who grew up watching Maddux and Glavine. It would make for a feel good story.

The Hudson situation looks like a lay-up for Hahn.

He better not **** this up.

He better be using it for leverage. The Braves farm is not pretty. Only one ATL prospect made the Sickels recent top 75, and it was Lucas Sims at 65.

Brandon Beachy will make his final rehab start tomorrow.

People won't sure where he would fit in. They sure do now.

frankly, it doesn't look to me like any of these teams want to give us top 50s. Braves are fine if they'll pay with a few top 150s (if they have those). WE can take pitching prospects. May have to move one of our starters in the offseason for some position players.

I think you are undervaluing Peavy in a seller's market with not much out there. Jake has an additional year after this and will almost assuredly garner a qualifying offer which equates to an additional draft pick immediately after the first round. The notion that Jake is going to only net you prospects in the 150's is silly. Don't believe the Bland talk. Arizona, Boston, St Louis, Oakland, and Atlanta all have interest here. Value will be had.
