Peavy trade update

Kevin Towers has apparently cut the list of possible Peavy trade destinations to three -- the Cubs, the Braves, and the Dodgers.

Towers says he expects this to be resolved within the week.

I have to think that, at the end of the day, the Braves will be the team that ends up with Peavy.  I think Towers playing chicken over Tommy Hanson, but at the end of the day, will accept Jordan Schafer, Yunel Escobar, and a non-Hanson pitching prospect or two.

The question then, I think, is what they are going to do with Adrian Gonzalez, given that they have a first base prospect knocking on the door, and given that, with the team seemingly going into strip-down-and-rebuild-mode, Gonzalez is the next significant veteran trading chip they could use to restock the farm.
