Peavy prefers the NL

He also prefers Jagermeister. Sure, I would prefer the NL, too, if I were a pitcher. Who wouldn't? I prefer ice cream to broccoli. Convertibles to mini-vans. Fresca to Sprite. Paparadelle to spaghetti. A big flat screen to an old tube. Pool to ocean. Sun to rain. Grey Goose to Jagermeister. Anyone else to Red Sox.

Buster has the latest:

The San Diego Padres have begun the process of sorting through initial trade conversations about All-Star right-hander Jake Peavy, and to date, their talks seem to have been with National League teams; Peavy has a no-trade clause and prefers to play in the NL.

One team -- perhaps St. Louis -- is discussing the possibility of expanding the package beyond Peavy to include shortstop Khalil Greene, who is under contract for 2009 for $6.5 million. It would make sense for the Padres to move Greene, who is coming off a disappointing season in which he hit .213 with 10 homers and 35 RBIs, a year after he hit 27 homers and drove in 97 runs. Greene, who turns 29 next week, is eligible for free agency after next season, and in moving Greene in a Peavy
package, the Padres would create even more payroll flexibility as they look to acquire more consistency in their offense.

We'll take that trade.

And the National League pennant again.
