    The Astros will trade Wandy Rodriguez, Brian Moehler, and two AAAA players for Jake Peavy and Marcus Giles. :D :D

    Marcus Giles was released by San Diego early last year. If you mean Brian, then maybe. Highly doubtful But if you how they might be able to trade a released player and all, you might know something.

    Do we have AAAA players at this point? Feels like we don't.

    ...the best off-season coup for the Astros since Clemens/Pettitte!

    Make it so, Drayton!

    That's all we have. Certainly not many prospects.

    I was calling the so called prospects not even AAAA worthy.

    DANA POINT, Calif. - Jake Peavy is going to be a Brave or Cub in the next few weeks.

    Padre GM Kevin Towers said yesterday, "The train has left the station."

    Translation: There is no doubt his ace will be traded.

    Towers said he had moved far enough along in trade conversations during the just-completed GM meetings to be confident that Peavy will be dealt before the Dec. 8-11 Winter meetings in Las Vegas.

    ....

    Towers spoke to Peavy's agent, Barry Axelrod, on Wednesday night to inform him of the progress and to ask Axelrod to get assurance from Peavy that it was OK to finalize a trade to one of these teams. Towers said, "We got the thumbs up."

    Or the Braves. Let that story be incorrect. I live in GA, I don't need anything making Braves fans happier. If we had the prospects, he would be an Astro.

    Just a hunch, but I think Wade is trying to involve more teams to get something that is attractive for the Padres and Peavy. I wonder if the Padres would give the Astros a list of players from teams they'd be willing to accept in a package?!?

    Realistically, Peavy could veto any trade that doesn't land him in Houston if he wanted to pitch here that badly.

    Except, according to the article, Peavy said he would approve a trade to the Cubs or Braves.

    Wonder what they asked for? They gave us a list and we said no, didn't think there was that much talent available in the minors for us to say no to...
