Jake Peavy to the Cubs certainly looks like it's going to happen

peavvv.jpegThe Cubs are the only team in the running for right-handed strikeout enthusiast and Cy Young Award-winning pitcher Jake Peavy. And according to Chris De Luca's update from the winter meetings, the deal that brings Peavy to Wrigley Field could be resolved within the week.

"'There's one ballclub we are talking to, so we'll see what's there,'' [San Diego Padres GM] Towers said. ''We should have a pretty good picture of where we're at certainly by Thursday.''

Since the general managers meetings last month, Towers and Cubs GM Jim Hendry have engaged in steady discussions centering on Peavy. One source close to Hendry characterized the Cubs as ''very close'' to closing the deal.

Theirs for the taking   [Sun-Times]

I am glad that this is close to being done. I have been expecting to turn on ESPN and see that my team has finally got this amazing pitcher. This would complete the best rotation in baseball. Then the Cubs can finally get that lefty bat and make the World Series run once again.
