Rotation Location Hints At Likely Peavy Trade

Peter Abraham of The Boston Globe (AKA John Henry's Journalistic Plaything) indicates that the set-up of the Post-All Star Red Sox rotation suggests a trade of Jake Peavy. Starting this Friday, Boston will send the following starters to the mound: Clay Buchholz, Rubby De La Rosa, Jon Lester and John Lackey. Anyone in particular missing from that roll-call? On top of that, Brandon Workman would be ready to take the "scheduled" July 22nd start of Peavy in Toronto. This deal seems pretty certain—assuming some contending team wants the (somewhat) resurgent Peavy.
