    Yankees interested in deal for Peavy

    American League a possibility for righty as talks stall with NL clubs
    By Robert Falkoff / MLB.com

    Even as they pursue free agent starting pitchers CC Sabathia, Derek Lowe and A.J. Burnett, the Yankees could also have an eye on Padres' right-hander Jake Peavy.

    FoxSports.com reports the Yanks and Padres have had "numerous discussions" about Peavy, according to a Major League source. The Braves recently announced they were pulling out of trade discussions for Peavy.

    With Peavy having a full no-trade clause and expressing a strong preference to stay in the NL according to agent Barry Axelrod, a trade to an AL club could get complicated. The Cubs remain involved in trade speculation regarding Peavy, but that could end if Chicago is successful in re-signing right-hander Ryan Dempster.

    FoxSports also lists the Angels as a possible AL destination for Peavy.

    I doubt Peavy will waive his no trade clause to play in the AL. He likes to hit and NY wasnt one of his choices.
    Yankees dont have much on their farm anyways.

    I thought I read he'd be open to waiving it to go to either the Angels or Yankees.

    Anyways don't really like the Cubs scenario because they don't have any good minor league talent. Yankees might have some interesting talent and it appears that they are going for a strong playoff push after missing the playoffs.

    He said he'd waive it for the Yanks or the Angels.

    That said, I don't think the Yankees have the farm pieces to get a deal done.

    They've got some good pieces to work with I'd say

    Phil Hughes (still a potential good starter who hit a bump in the road)
    Brett Gardner (incredible wheels and good strike zone discipline)
    Jesus Montero (their best hitting catcher but in A ball)
    Ian Kennedy (back rotation guy, stock has fallen though)
    Mark Melancon (considered their future closer)
    Austin Jackson (best athlete and prospect, hell of a good hitter and player)

    hell you could even throw in Robinson Cano who is decent defensively and has a good bat

    so there are farm pieces to work with and they'd make a better offer with these guys then the stupid Braves did with their worthless offer.

    They really dont have much on their farm because they trade them all away for vets they have gotton lately....much like they are tryng to do here.

    I hope they tell the Yanks they dont have **** and no thanks. However, maybe a couple of their best prospects(Jackson and Melancon) plus Robinson Canu? They may be stupid enough to do that....Steinbrenners kid is an idiot who thinks he knows baseball.
    But im sure Towers will want a pitcher in the deal.

    Who knows

    Like everyone else the Yanks are putting on their poker face, all the while knowing Jake Peavy makes them legit World Series contenders again. WE HAVE TO land a can't miss prospect in this.

    I dont see any in that list, the only ones with MLB time have all been dissapointments, hence the Yanks willingness to trade them.

    The problem is that while technically the Padres don't have to trade Peavey, they will trade him. And they have put themselves at a HUGE disadvantage by making it known that they simply cannot afford to pay his salary this season. Now teams will lowball them and call their bluff, knowing that there is virtually no chance they keep him and we will settle for lesser prospects.
