Default Peavy: I'd waive no-trade clause to go to the Astros

Pitching ace Peavy says he'd be open to joining Astros | Sports | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle

The problem with this is that the Astros have already traded away their good prospects over the last three seasons or so, sometimes in bad trades. This would be a great trade. I'd even part with Hunter Pence. I'd rather them take Carlos Lee or Miguel Tejada, but I think it's doubtful the Padres would take their contracts.

He would also approve it for Atlanta, St. Louis, Dodgers, and Cubs.

The Cardinals could dangle Colby Rasmus, but our farm system is probably not as deep as the Braves.

That's true....


Also, the Braves could more than likely trade Jordan Schaefer and a Pitching Prospect for Peavy.....

Houston's just three or four players away from really controlling their destiny. It'd just be better if Peavy were a free agent, and the Astros just need to look for a few free agents that can help them. There is actually interest from Mike Hampton in coming back to the Astros, but we haven't heard anything new lately. Right now, the Astros need to get their farm system built back up again and leave their untouchables, especially Pence, right where they're at. If they can somehow get Jake without parting with anyone too valuable, then that would be great and he certainly would be a great addition to a rotation that needs a strong 2 and 3. And don't rule out a three-way deal, either; that certainly is possible.

That would be great for the Astros but who could they give in return? Another big arm would really help.

Like I said, it wouldn't be popular, but I'd part with Pence if that's who San Diego wanted. Problem is Drayton is so scared of doing something to **** off the fans even if it would make the ballclub better.

If they could pull it off, Peavy would be a great score for the Astros. A rotation including Oswalt, Peavy, and Wolf would be very effective for '09.

It would be nice, but let's see what Wolf decides to do. I would take that rotation if the Astros didn't have to give anything up.

The Giants could offer Sanchez and one great or two good prospects... Pads save money and better off long term, Giants use some of their cap and end up with the best rotation in baseball.

The Franchise the ace, Johnson two, Peavy as a three and Cain as a four (Zito five). and I see the possibility of two 20 game winners. Big hitters are waiting in the wings and this deal would not preclude sisgning a power hitter. This rotation would not need much offense and Peavy would be very effective in the park by the bay.
