Red Sox May Trade Jake Peavy To Cardinals

Allen Craig And Jake Peavy
Rumors are swirling that the Red Sox and Cardinals are close to a deal that would send starter Jake Peavy to St. Louis. Last year's World Series losers are in desperate need of help in their rotation—which has been decimated by injuries of late. No specific word yet on who would come back to Yawkey Way in the deal—although there are rumblings that it could be 29-year old OF/1B Allen Craig. If you remember, Craig's return from injury during the post-season was supposed to propel the Cardinals to a championship. The oft-injured Craig is hitting just .246 this year, with 7 HRs and 43 RBIs. Of course, that would make him one of the studs in the Red Sox line-up. Make the deal, BenCher!
