From the GM meetings in Florida, it is being reported that Jake Peavy would accept a trade to New York--although he would prefer National League teams first. According to the Star-Ledger, Peavy has identified "at least five National League teams - the Braves, Astros, Dodgers, Cardinals and Cubs," athough he has preference to Atlanta.
What does Peavy's addition of the Yankees mean to us?
Probably nothing other than it's one more blue chip pitcher to go after this winter. The Padres price for Peavy would be steep--perhaps too steep for the Yankees. But with CC, Burnett apparently not interested in the Yankees, Peavy might be the only blue-chip option, and Cashman might have to seriously mull it over.
