Peavy has no interest in Yankees, AL

As for now, Scott Boras is hiding out backstage. But the ever-gracious Kevin Towers did stop to speak to reporters.

Attention fans of the New York Yankees: Forget Jake Peavy.

Forget. Jake. Peavy.

Towers made it clear that Peavy has no interest in playing in the American League. Towers has even gone so far as tried to come up with a trade with the NL West, something he would rather not do.

“I had brief conversation with Ned (Colletti, the GM of the Dodgers) but some of the names I mentioned might have scared him off,” Towers said. “It’s hard to make a deal within the division.”

Towers said, in essence, that the Padres will either trade Peavy to the Cubs or hold onto him. Their preference is to trade him, otherwise they risk having one player take up 25 percent of their payroll.

Jim Hendry stood about 30 feet away from Towers talking about the same thing, albeit with less specifics.
