Tom Krasovic of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports:

“We've had advanced discussions with the Cubs and Braves, which are Jake's priority teams,” General Manager Kevin Towers said Thursday night, “but at this point in time, I do not see a potential deal with either club.”

The Yankees and Angels could be next in line, but that doesn't necessarily mean Towers' job will become easier.

David Pinto suggests Kei Igawa, Ian Kennedy and an outfielder for Peavy. Even if that outfielder is Austin Jackson, that seems pretty cheap to me.

Imagine a rotation of Sabathia, Peavy, Wang, Joba and Pettitte/Sheets/Burnett/Lowe/Hughes/Mussina, though. Wow. That said, though, any talk of a deal with the Padres is highly speculative and, at this point, highly unlikely. We can still dream, of course.
