Padres can't plug holes until Peavy is traded

Padres' plans being put on hold

The whole Peavy situation is keeping Towers from addressing team's needs this off season.

But not knowing if the team can or will move Peavy and his $11 million contract for 2009 has all but left Towers in a standby mode until the future of the 2007 National League Cy Young Award winner is decided.

"That's pretty much it," Towers said. "It's certainly a large sum of money we would be moving. Once that's decided, we will have a better idea of what holes we would be plugging."

Maybe this is why pessimism is at an all time high.  We are only hearing about our few good players leaving and we haven't acquired any one who has actually improved this 99 loss ball club.

Once that fresh meat is loaded into the locker room, maybe our spirits will be lifted.
