The Braves have been on the prowl, and according to most sources are favorite to land San Diego's Jake Peavy.
But the Chicago Tribune the Cubs are among the teams Peavy would agree to waive his no-trade clause for according to the San Diego Union-Tribune and if they don't re-sign Ryan Dempster, they might be able to pry Peavy loose from the Padres.
In a perfect world, they could acquire Peavy with a package that included not only two or three prospects, but also Fukudome, whom San Diego tried to sign last off-season. Of course, with $42 million remaining on Fukudome's contract, he's now a much tougher sell. Peavy missed a month this season with an elbow strain, so it's a bigger risk than picking up Harden's option was.
