The mlb.com Hot Stove Blog is reporting that the Cubs are close to completing a multi-team trade (perhaps involving the Phillies) that will bring in Jake Peavy.
That would give them a starting rotation of:
- Jake Peavy
- Carlos Zambrano
- Rich Harden
- Ryan Dempster
- Ted Lilly
What's that, 4 #1 pitchers and a #2 making up their starting five? If there were a time for a Scott Bakula/Quantum Leap "oh boy," this'd be it.
Good thing we have Jeff Suppan.
