Default B. Prospectus=> Peavy for Big Z?

According to John Perrotto at Baseball Prospectus Peavy for Big Z would not be a big surprise. Sounds like speculation, nothing in the works. This is probably the most ridiculous thing I have heard in a while, and I read a lot threads at WSI. Journalism standards really have seemed to drop in the last 15 yrs.

You do realize that BP is run by die-hard Cub fans, don't you?

I'm waiting for their next wish list item:

Beckham for Bradley and Soriano. Straight up, no money eaten by the Cubs.

Baseball Prospectus isn't journalism. Sports journalism isn't real journalism, but Baseball Prospectus isn't even sports journalism.

So, let me see if I understand this: Kenny Williams went on a virtual crusade to get Jake Peavy into a White Sox uniform -- simply so KW could then send Peavy to the Cubs for Carlos Zambrano?

Damn, I never even thought of that strategy!

Of course, I gave up drinking to the point of hallucinating many years ago ...

How about we swap ballparks while we're at it?

Wow, talk about one of the dumbest things I have ever heard. Laughable.

We'll absolutely take Zambrano.

The Cubs can have Linebrink and Jenks. We'll eat the Z $ also.

Then they can see Peavy, Zambrano and Buehrle hoist the World Series trophy at the parade on October 29, 2010.
