A month ago the Braves were willing to provide the Padres with a package highlighted by Escobar. But because they used Brent Lillibridge to acquire Javier Vazquez last week, they no longer are willing to entertain thoughts of dealing Escobar, who one veteran Braves player considers, "the best shortstop in the National League."http://hotstove.mlblogs.com/archives/2008/12/braves_still_not_ready_to_revi.html Bowman basically says the Padres would have to initiate talks in order for them to even consider trading for Peavy. Even then they would not be willing to include Escobar. If this is true I'm back on the "Get Peavy" bandwagon.
