Cubs After Peavy, Dempster

Eli GreenspanSenior Analyst INovember 6, 2008
According to Ken Rosenthal, the Cubs are seriously looking to acquire Padres ace Jake Peavy, as well as resign Ryan Dempster. Major league sources have informed Ken Rosenthal saying that the Cubs are now leading the race for Peavy. The Cubs have the money to do it, but it would take a lot of prospects to get a deal done. They might be forced to lose Jeff Samardzjia, Carlos Marmol, or Felix Pie, as well as young top prospects like Donald Veal, Tyler Colvin, and Ryan Flaherty. The Braves and Dodgers are the two other teams that are seriously considering Peavy, and the race has only just begun.
