    It would take a lot, not only because of how good Peavy is but he is locked up for awhile. Kemp, McDonald, and Lambo could be enough to get it done, but I'd imagine the Padres would want another top prospect as well, most likely an arm. Using the Dan Haren deal as an example, that's what the market rate would probably be except Peavy is already locked up.

    I think there is a good chance he'll get a 3 year deal from someone, maybe 4 if he's lucky. This past year was injury plauged but the 3 seasons before that he was pretty healthy and his performance was fine. I think with the way teams are desperate for pitching he will be able to get a pretty good deal from someone.

    Personally I am in favor of picking up his option. There's not much out there on the market after CC, just other injury prone guys along with the likes of Jon Garland. I think its worth gambling on Penny that he stays healthy. McDonald looked good in limited action but I don't know if throwing him into the rotation is the best thing for him. Kershaw is legit but he can't be counted on for 200+ innings yet. Who knows what Schmidt will bring and our other pitching prospects are nowhere near close to being ready.

    I'm sure if we gave the guy a 6 year deal at 13 per he'd stay!

    But yea Lowe is as good as gone. One of the better FA signings we've had in recent history that is for sure.

    True on both parts but Tbrown is right, Lowe is not happy here. We are going to need to add 2 starters. Resign Manny(or add a OF with power), ass a 2nd or 3rd basemen, and ship out Jones and Pierre. It's going to be a busy offseason.

    Just brainstorming...

    I would really like to see Martin at third everyday. A well rested RM all season long, could put up some pretty good numbers. Keep DeWitt at second, and sign a decent defender behind the plate.

    Eh I don't like this idea very much. Coaches and such always talk up Martin's potential at 3B but let's be honest all that talk is based on IF practice. Everybody can look good taking IF.

    Martin could very easily be a subpar defender at third, and there's no guarantee he explodes offensively after being moved. Sure it will probably help, but is it worth moving him and having a subpar player at catcher? I don't really think so. Above all Martin takes care of the pitching staff well, he had a down year defensively behind the plate but he's still better than most and we had one of the best pitching staffs in baseball.

    Martin will more than likely move away from catcher at some point, but I don't think would be smart to due so in the near future.

    Here's a blurb regarding DeWitt and 2B

    The position change that DeWitt had in the middle of this season from third base to second base probably won't be permanent. He said he scrapped the idea of playing winter ball to better learn how to play in the middle of the infield.
    Interesting, it is clear that DeWitt seems himself as a 3B. Personally I think his bat plays better at 2B.

    I'm not saying I think he should be moved 100% but he looked damn good defensively in the small amount of time he did play there this year. Maybe once or twice a week to start wouldn't be a bad idea?

    I agree, his bat is very average at 3rd...
