It's over. They lived, they loved, they all said things they can never take back, but in the end, it was never to be. Jake Peavy will not be a Cub.
Kevin Towers and Jim Hendry danced all night but in the end there's only one person to blame—Jason Marquis. That's right, the Cubs passed on a chance to land the best
free agent pitcher under 300 pounds, because they didn't want to eat more than 50% of Marquis' contract.
Or to hear Peavy's agent put it—the Padres are insane and asked for way to much. The Cubs were pretty much the only option for them to move the pitcher and now Peavy will likely be starting for San Diego on Opening Day. So good job all around.
What else happened today?
