Angels Among Jake Peavy's Approved Destinations

The Padres opened bidding on Jake Peavy earlier in the week, and with a no-trade clause, it looks like most of his approved destinations are in the National League — except for the Angels.

Axelrod made one concrete stipulation to any trade scenarios: "Jake would only approve a trade to a team with a solid chance of winning and a winning tradition. Those teams in the National League may be in locations that are more acceptable, or would be."

He said "the ability or opportunity to win is very important to Jake, and hopefully some sort of coincidence with his and his family's lifestyle."

Among the cities Axelrod mentioned were Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles and St. Louis.

Peavy and his wife Katie have three boys, one an infant, and this year moved into a home north of San Diego. Because of Peavy's intention to keep his family in San Diego for at least part of the year, Axelrod acknowledged that the Anaheim Angels are one AL club that would draw extra consideration.

I know the Angels are or have been rumored to be clearing payroll space to bid on C.C. Sabathia, but this could be an enormous opportunity to pick up an ace at a substantial discount. The Padres don't have to worry about trading in-division or even in-league, and the Angels won't have to bid against the Yankees or Red Sox for Sabathia.
