I think this guy will be excellent next year. Everything about his season just seems to feel like Roy Halladay '04 or Jason Schmidt '05, i.e. proven studs who just went through a miserable year, with tired arms or other mysterious ailments. Both those other guys bounced back very well the following year. I don't think there's any reason Peavy couldn't bounce back next year and have the kind of season he's had in the past; and you will be able to get him at an excellent value next year, as well.
