Cbs Sportsline reports that the Peavy deal is close to done. If this guy, Scott Miller, is right, the home team would give up Yesco, Gorkys, probably Morton and either Boyer or Jeff Locke.
That would be no steal, but a good deal for the Bravos. Established aces like Peavy just done come along very often. And to get him without giving up Hanson or another of the organization's top pitching prospects, and for a very reasonable salary, would be an excellent way to start the offseason for Wren.
Yesco could be a star. So could Hernandez. Morton might be a good middle of the rotation starter. Boyer? I'm not sure why they'd want him over Locke. Apparently the Podrees want bullpen help now. In exchange for one of the top starters in baseball, you make that deal. No doubt.
