He is, but that can't stop the team from getting a 26 year old SP with front line starter potential. He'll bring something back in return if he was traded because the Sox got Tanaka that would add a ton of stability to the rotation long term. The Sox have a lot of promising arms but none of them are Buchholz/Lester type prospects up to this point. They could all still flame out or wind up as back of the rotation guys. Tanaka would be a huge CYA pick up with more upside than pretty much anyone in the minors other than Owens.Montana Fan said:Drek, don't you think Peavy has the potential to be a pillow type player as you've been talking about elsewhere? If healthy I think he could get a QO next offseason. Heck, James projects him at 11-7 and 3.31. I might rather have those numbers and a supplemental pick over trading him.
