It's not a likely scenerio, but plausable. After the season, you're looking at a year of a guy that's been hurt for significant time 4 of 5 years. I know what you think he's worth and why, but I think emotions are a part of that. When he's on, he's phenomenal. But this isn't a case where there's a hitch that a team thinks it can correct. Whether or not he's that Peavy for the next team is a total crapshoot.
You think emotion is part of my analysis? LOL.

The Rangers #2 starter, Derrick Holland has never had a WHIP below 1.2
And, again, if nothing materializes, keep him for next year.
As DickAllen points, money shouldn't be anywhere close to a major concern.
He's our best trading chit, presuming he gets healthy. He's better than most of the GOOD pitchers on contenders. So is Crain, but not as valuable as he's a reliever. Others, like Rios, aren't going to be better than the good hitters on contenders...they will be better than a hole the contender might have, but they won't pay that much just to plug a hole.
You couldn't be more right about Peavy. Ever since the start of 2012, he's been a top-of-the-rotation starter when healthy. I'm completely baffled that people think otherwise. I guess it's just the usual self-loathing from Sox fans. I can't think of any other explanation for it. The numbers don't lie.
