I think you are undervaluing Peavy in a seller's market with not much out there. Jake has an additional year after this and will almost assuredly garner a qualifying offer which equates to an additional draft pick immediately after the first round. The notion that Jake is going to only net you prospects in the 150's is silly. Don't believe the Bland talk. Arizona, Boston, St Louis, Oakland, and Atlanta all have interest here. Value will be had.
