Deja Peavy?

According to Bill Center of the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Brewers are rumored to have interest in trading for Padres ace Jake Peavy. Though this is highly unconfirmed and possibly impossible, lets try and break it down a little bit.

The first obstacle is Peavy waiving his full no-trade clause to come and play here in Milwaukee. This probably won't be a big deal, as the Brewers have proven they are a contending team, unless he has some prior injustices against the city.

The second is the ability of Kevin Towers and Doug Melvin to hook up on the content of players coming to San Diego. Towers shot for the moon when he asked Atlanta for the likes of Tommy Hanson, Jordan Schafer, Yunel Escobar, Charlie Morton, Jason Heyward, etc (clearly not all of them, but you get the picture).

Finally, do the Brewers as an organization and us want to give up more prospects/MLB ready players for another picther? Clearly the Sabathia trade worked out well, but as ya'll know, he is no longer with us. Peavy, under contract through 2012 with an option for 2013, is not in the same boat and may require more, as he would serve much more as a rental.

Who would be given up? The name of Gwynn is still sacred in San Diego, but there would obviously have to be much more with him. If the Cubs could sneak by with a package of Josh Vitters and Sean Marshall, the Brewers would probably be able to assemble something.
