There are swirling rumors all over Philly that Peavy is going to the Phillies for minor league pitchers and in turn the Phillies would trade Peavy to the Cubs for Mark De Rosa.
The move covers the Phillies butt in case Utley doesn't get back in time for the season opener at second base as well as hints that they'll be putting De Rosa in left and not be offering Burrell a contract.
Once again, this is just a rumor...but it sounds like it is close. The only thing that I haven't heard about is the fact that the Cubs want to off Marquis in the deal too to make room for Peavy's salary. There are probably some loose ends still being tied up.
Just thought I would pass it along.
