Angels, Dodgers On Peavy's Short List

The Dodgers are on Jake Peavy's short list of trade destinations:
“Jake has a strong preference to stay in the National League,” [Peavy's agent, Barry] Axelrod said. “It is hypothetical, but Jake, by any measure, has had a great deal of success in the National League. He has a comfort level with knowing how to approach hitters here.”


Axelrod made one concrete stipulation to any trade scenarios: “Jake would only approve a trade to a team with a solid chance of winning and a winning tradition. Those teams in the National League may be in locations that are more acceptable, or would be.”

He said “the ability or opportunity to win is very important to Jake, and hopefully some sort of coincidence with his and his family's lifestyle.”

Among the cities Axelrod mentioned were Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles and St. Louis.

Peavy and his wife Katie have three boys, one an infant, and this year moved into a home north of San Diego. Because of Peavy's intention to keep his family in San Diego for at least part of the year, Axelrod acknowledged that the Anaheim Angels are one AL club that would draw extra consideration.

Via Gaslamp Ball, which points out that Chicago's "winning tradition" might need some work.

Wood, Adenhart, and what?
Dunno. That's what makes it interesting... I'm not sure anyone has the prospects to get a deal like this done.
Ah, but it Peavy has a no trade, that gives him some power. The Angels are geographically the closest team to his home.

If he sniffs an opportunity, he might force San Diego to deal with the Angles. Wood or Kendrick, Adenhart, and Trumbo?
Oh, Christ, if Trumbo was the third in that deal, I'd do it in a heartbeat. I honestly expect nothing from him, ever.
