What if Peavy IS traded?

February 7, 2009

If Peavy IS traded, then here is the next trade I would like to see the Padres make.

Kevin Kouzmanoff and Travis Denker for Dan Uggla and a pitching prospect like Ryan Tucker or Jose Ceda (who originally was in the Padres farm system).

For the Marlins, this trade gives Jorge Cantu a chance to move to 1B where he is not a defensive liability, gets rid of the soon to be very expensive Uggla and his mediocre defense and adds a good young ML 3B and a good young 2B prospect in case Bonifacio can’t get the job done.

For the Padres, this trade adds a legitimate 30 HR right handed bat to the middle of the lineup to protect Adrian Gonzalez and a power pitching prospect who could move into the bullpen immediately.

I have had my say. Now what do you think?
