I actually think it's more of a blessing if Peavy stays a Padre. His home ERA/WHIP are quite pristine and pitching against NL West competition also boosts the rationale to take Peavy. Of course, he had gotten perhaps the worst run support in the Majors but I also think their bullpen is sturdy enough to hold leads if necessary. I still voted for Hamels, BTW.
