STFU Jake Peavy

I hate to do this to a guy that I love, adore, respect and hope to God that someday (soon) finds himself wearing those familiar Cubbie blue pinstripes.

But Jake Peavy, you've been awarded today's STFU award.

Just please, stop teasing Cubdom with the idea of the 2007 NL Cy Young Award winner mowing down Cardinals, Astros, Mets and Dodgers. Please.

"Obviously, Chicago was a team that I did have an interest in playing for, and I respect [general manager] Jim Hendry and the organization," he said. "I respect a lot of the players they have and feel like they have a good bunch, and obviously [it's] a great city. [Those] were reasons I identified the Cubs as a team I wanted to be a part of if I had to move on from San Diego."

Thanks, Jake. I understand you want to be in Chicago. I do, too. But I have to wait 'til next Sunday after the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament in St. Louis.

I could be really, really witty right here. Instead, I'll recycle that one line I used in yesterday's post that really just sums up this whole saga.

"At this point, Peavy's the girl you want to date and kind of wants to date you, but she's got a boyfriend and you're addicted to Internet porn."

Yep. Sounds about right.
