I just heard an interview with Barry Axelrod, Peavy's Agent, and it was focused around the possibility of the Padres dealing Peavy. I don't think this is a smart move on any count, He is the centerpiece of what they should build around, a proven ace. I don't want to see him dealt for a bunch of top prospects with the chance that none of them ever become proven stars. What are your thoughts? It seems like there is a lot of smoke out there and that is normally not a good sign of things to come.

If we get a bunch of top prospects than you have to deal Peavy. We have no minor league at all. We need talent. One ace won't do jack on this loser team. Make it happen and take some chances or keep doing what we are doing and go another 40 years without a championship. It would suck because he is my favorite player but at this point its whats best for the team. Jake Peavy could get us a ton of prospects or even young established major leaguers. And if someone doesn't over pay for him , than you don't trade him.

It depends on what your plans are for the next three or four years. If you think your team is a couple pieces removed and you think you can reasonably get those pieces, you keep him.

If you feel like you have to tear this team up and rebuild it from the ground up, you could probably get a boatload of minor league talent for Peav.

That said, I'd be VERY sad to see him go. He's a terrific ballplayer and SO much fun to watch, but he also deserves the shot to win.

from today's UT. I doubt they go into FA at all this year. and it looks like they are going to rebuild so as much as I dont like trading Peavy, from a basball perspective it makes sense. with Peavy's age and relatively inexpensive contract, they should get at least three top AAA or AA players for him, but watch them screw it up haha

finally, the michael barrett experiment is over too

Peavy talks under way
Towers said he has heard from clubs interested in trading for ace pitcher Jake Peavy. “We're having talks,” he said.

The GM said he wouldn't be surprised if the Peavy talks heat up next month.

Simmons for bench
Another vocal major-league veteran, Ted Simmons, likely will be joining manager Bud Black's staff as bench coach. Simmons, the bench coach for the Brewers last offseason, recently met with Black. He had worked as a special assistant to Towers before becoming the bench coach to his friend Ned Yost, the Brewers manager fired last month.

Denker added
The Padres Friday claimed second baseman Travis Denker off waivers from the Giants. Towers said the 5-foot-9 right-handed hitter will join a group of second base candidates along with Matt Antonelli, Luis Rodriguez and Edgar Gonzalez. Denker, 23, hit .243 with one home run in 37 at-bats for the Giants. He has a .376 career on-base percentage in the minor leagues.

“He's got a chance to be an offensive player,” Towers said. “I don't see us going out and getting a second baseman.”

Denker is the 10th player claimed off waivers by the Padres this season, the most in the majors.


Catcher Michael Barrett was outrighted off the 40-man roster into free agency.

How many "Cinderella" story like the Rays success this year in recent history of MLB? So far I can only remember the Marlins came from nowhere to win the WS...My point is that the percentage of you keep on signing castoff players or sign players from the street and hope they become champions is extremely low or near nonexistent...

Pads fan, stop being a sucker to their money game and act more like a fan who wants to win...

P.S. I go to the Petco and hope to see a competitive team going for a win, not some fish taco or some Randy Jones's ballpark food.

Bottom line is our minor league sucks and until that changes, so will the Padres. ....and what does fish tacos or BBQ have to do with anything? Are you saying real fans don't eat hotdogs at ballgames?:rolleyes:

Trading Peavy wont make this team better, it's that simple. Unless we get the top 2-3 position and pitching prospects and some established YOUNG players in return; it'd have to be a deal that helps the team NOW not in the "future".

That being said trading Peavy is like saying we should've traded Tony and im shocked Padre fans think this is the way to go. You dont get rid of your best pitcher (and one of the best in the entire league). Even on this crappy team he still put the team in positions to win almost every start, he just had lousy run support.

This team needs to plan for the future because there is no quick fix for this team. If we do it right and get legitimate players and prospects it could be the turning point for this franchise. Look at the Rays. They did it through their minor leagues. Those Rays are currently dismantling the mighty Red Sox and are on their way to a World Series. Or you can sit around and watch Peavy give us a chance to win every 5 days as we fight to avoid 100 losses. Sounds great to me.

As a Dodger fan I would drive him to the airport if they got rid of him.

It would be a huge mistake. Some Pads fans here (not all) make fun of the Dodgers for spending too much money. At least they try to win, not throw in the towel. That is kind of sad, dont you think?

probably because they will make a totally asinine deal and take a peanut and cotton candy vendor and some bill james computer stat geek that sandy can talk shop with.

they should come out of this deal with a top flight center fielder, a middle infielder and a catcher.

This team is 1 year removed from fighting for a playoff spot and 2 years from winning back to back division titles. This team got severely hurt by injuries to key players.

I wouldnt trade Peavy, period. Call me naive or bullheaded or whatever but he is the face of the franchise along with Trevor.
This is why SD fans gets a bad rap, as soon as thing go sour they want to get rid of every good player (you can see it already with the LT talk above) and think that will fix things. I cant guarantee keeping Peavy will make us champions but you or no else can guarantee trading him will.
What I can assure you is that with every Peavy start the Pads have a legit chance of winning those games.

But wouldn't you agree that if we plan to rebuild the fastest way to do that would be to get a dream deal for Peavy? I do believe if the Padres really wanted to, we could go spend a little dough and we could make a run, but we all know the only dough the Padres have is in the Friars belly. Sign Manny and keep Peavy. Manny is so good , I could get very, very excited about the thought of him with Adrian and Peavy. But lets face it, that won't happen.

I think it's going to happen and the house of cards will collapse. Chris Young is not ready to be the #1. If they're looking for prospects. They'll need a new front office because they don't know how to scout for talent.Plus I just don't want to get nobody's on my photos, bats, balls, etc.... You might as well convert the Padres to a minor league team. My two cents.

what would a dream deal be for you?
for me it means getting established players that will help immediately and their top prospects. Peavy is a proven commodity, getting anything less in return does nothing for me. If we get legit stars at, say, a #1 or 2 P, starting CF, C, and 2B PLUS their top prospects i wouldnt accept a trade for Peavy.

If Peavy is gone, so am I. Lets go ANGELS!!! will be what i start saying.

But If he is gone, I hope its to the Dodgers. As much as I hate them, I would love to see Peavy absolutely destroy the Padres 5 times during the year for being such greedy cheapskates.

If he is gone, we can guarantee at least 115 losses.

this is a blurb from a story in the Arizona republic newspaper on Randy Johnson.

http://www.azcentral.com/arizonarepublic/sports/articles/2008/10/17/20081017dbrandy1017.html

It would not surprise me to see him and Maddux in the rotation next year based on the old "san diego discount".

that FO is retarded if they go in that direction.


What if he and the Diamondbacks can't come to an agreement?

Johnson said during the season that while he still enjoys pitching and competing, the rigors of traveling and being away from home had worn on him. That would seem to suggest that he might not want to pitch elsewhere - or, at least, that the number of teams for which he would be willing to play would be limited to those on the West Coast.

Along with owning a home in the Valley, he also has a place in Southern California, so pitching for either Los Angeles team or San Diego could be considerations.



the SDUT story today quotes Towers as saying he wants pitching and will only shop Peavy to the NL due to his no trade clause (another moronic move). unless this is like April in the NFL in which its called "liars month" KT should zip it about discussing trade strategy.

note: article says houston doesnt match up well with what Pads want so it could multiple trade partners. also like the idea of including Greene in the trade.

http://www3.signonsandiego.com/stories/2008/oct/17/padres-padsweb1718101/?padres


edit: added a classic comment to the article

i'm not a big baseball guy, but this has to be the stupidest soundbite Towers has ever said. We're looking for pitching, then why the hell are you trying to trade the best pitcher on your rotation that you have on contrct for another 4 years, for another pitcher that is ready or almost ready for the show. that's like saying i don't need a driver i have my son who has a permit. then you are trying to resign a way past glory days closer instead. it better be a two for one deal 1 starter 1 closer if you're going to get rid of peavy.

You thought what? Anyways, about my reference to the World Series, I was refering to the Rays. But sure, let's use Philly for example. Most of the Phillies are homegrown just like the Rays, right? Neither of which has a big payroll. In fact Philly is 13th and Tampa is second to last! That means the Padres spend about 30 million more than the Rays do to finish in last. Meanwhile the Rays and Phillies battle in the World Series. I would say we have a problem in the farm system, wouldn't you? Just like I said before, San Diego is a small market, therefore we all know, unless Moores sells this team we will not spend money. So we need to succeed through the draft and by building the farm. Do some research. Where are the teams at now with the highest payrolls? I thought so.....It's time to wake up San Diego, we are not the Yankees or Red Sox and never will be. But we could definitely pull off what these two teams in the World Series are doing.

I thought so? You thought what? Anyways, about my reference to the World Series, I was refering to the Rays. But sure, let's use Philly for example. Most of the Phillies are homegrown just like the Rays, right? Neither of which has a big payroll. In fact Philly is 13th and Tampa is second to last!

I think it would be dumb to deal him to a division rival. Although I wouldn't mind some of that young talent the Dodgers have.

Does it really matter if they keep Peavey or trade him? The tight ass Owner/GM will never keep the quality players he did get in trade and they will end up leaving too. The Padres are more interested in making money than fielding a winner.

Trading Peavy would be a huge mistake!!I hear what you are saying.....but we lost 99 games with Peavy and he pitched great. We need a handfull of talented players for us to get anywhere close to a championship team. The fastest way to do that would be to get an awesome package for my favorite Padre , Jake Peavy. It is sad but it probably is the right move. Unless of course, the Padres find a way to mess it up. But in theory it is the right thing to do. (IMO)

Well from the looks of your avatar, you shouldn't have to worry about the price of a ticket to the game, you don't have to believe anything I say, but you also don't have to go to the games. As a fan you are allowed your opinions on the team and the direction they are headed just the same as I do. I wasn't making excuses for them, just making an observation about a statement I don't believe was ever made. I'm mad as hell about the direction they are headed, but I will stick with them to the bitter end.

if they are gonna trade peavy, send him to the Angels, i will glady drive 70 miles to watch him start for a winning team, where the parking is 5 bucks, tickets are cheaper, and they WIN.

well unfortunately i have an unconditional love for the padres (unless they were to leave) so pretty much im stuck watching them suck the next 5- 7 seasons. Maybe we'll get lucky but the dodgers look like they are getting it right and arizona is way better than us right now. It's going to be 3 seasons before we have anything that resembles a team and really it could be 5 seasons or more as long as baseball has no salary cap the teams with money will keep winning and those without will keep losing... see the royals. Tampa bay had a rare year this year. The padres need to get a load of minor leaguers for peavy and pray that 2 turn out to be good which could happen then they need to get a good amount of minor leaguers for giles when they trade him and hope for 1 to be good, then get matt bush an mattantonelli up here see what they can do and maybe just maybe we'll get a surprise season. Gerut showed some nice slugging but lets see what it does for 162.

Your GM is being smart, Marquis would have given you half a season and the Phillies third party offer was nothing spectacular. If I were the Cubs GM, I would gladly have given up Marquis/Derosa(to Phillies)for a Peavy. The Cubs should have been willing to part with Kevin Hart plus another player to get this deal done.

I don't think Marquis was gonna be part of this deal, I think in order for the cubs to take Peavy's contract, they needed to find someone willing to take on Marquis' contract.

He was part of the deal as a direct trade from the Cubs to the Pads, Jim Hendry wanted to unload his payroll here. BTW, the deal is not dead...just on hold again.

Good question, what I do know is that the Cubs would have been able to dump 5M of the Marquis salary. I'm not sure if it was the Pads offering to directly pick up the remainder or if the Phillies were somehow covering the rest as a third party. From what I'm hearing this morning, your GM wanted 1-2 additional players. We need another SP to replace Marquis, the Cubs should sweeten the deal by offering Felix Pie as well.

Edit, I should have done more homework prior to posting this morning. Here is a pretty accurate assessment of what took place:
