Peavy brewing for Milwaukee? The Milwaukee Brewers energizing their team and their fans by trading for a stud pitcher? They did it with CC Sabathia last year, and they could do it with Jake Peavy this year. We're told the Brewers are exploring whether to bid for Peavy, and they could emerge as the most realistic trade partner for the San Diego Padres. After the Padres gave Peavy a no-trade clause, they asked him for a list of teams to which he might prefer to be traded.

ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Cardinals turned potentially decisive leads into harrowing and entertaining sequences Saturday in Game 3 of the World Series. Much of that stemmed from their inability to capitalize on rallies in the fourth and seventh innings. But that set up the zaniest finish, as Allen Craig was awarded home plate on an obstruction play called on Will Middlebrooks at third base after an errant throw by catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia with two out in the ninth inning to give the Cardinals a 5-4 victory over the Boston Red Sox and take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.

ST. LOUIS - It has been 11 years since the World Series last visited Southern California. If you're a Dodgers fan, these are pretty good times. Your team just got within two games of the Series, and baseball's biggest wallet remains wide open. If you're an Angels fan, these are fair times. Your team has a pitching staff riddled by question marks, but you can enjoy the best player in baseball, Mike Trout. If you're a San Diego Padres fan, these are maddening and miserable times.

Tony Reagins checked out of the Bellagio without a deal for slugger Mark Teixeira, without a starter to fill out the rotation or a clear-cut closer, and without three triple-A pitchers who were plucked from the team's farm system in Thursday's Rule 5 draft. But the Angels' general manager left baseball's winter meetings feeling as confident about his chances of re-signing Teixeira as when he came, and with an attractive rotation candidate: San Diego ace Jake Peavy.

BOSTON  - Jake Peavy hasn't forgotten the first words Jonny Gomes said to him on his first day in the Fenway Park home clubhouse after his trade from the Chicago White Sox. "I asked how Jonny was doing, and his quote to me was, 'Just a day closer to the parade, Jake. Doing well. Just check this one off the list.' "It took me a minute to realize what that meant," Peavy said Monday. "I said, 'Oh my God. He's talking about the World Series parade.' This is the last day of July.

On the West Coast, you're on the clock from the moment you wake up. The trade deadline hits at 1 p.m. our time, time enough for a cup of coffee and a few hours of chaos. Kevin Towers, the general manager of the San Diego Padres, awoke Friday at 6 a.m. He had been at his Petco Park office until midnight, and he was back in the office at 7 a.m. Six hours to the deadline, and Towers thought he had a pretty good idea of what might happen.

Tigers Manager Jim Leyland had a big announcement to make before Game 4 of the American League Championship Series on Wednesday, and he even prefaced it as such. "Huge lineup change," Leyland said, before adding: "Really, I don't know if it's huge or not. " Whether it was the new lineup or the inefficiency of Red Sox starter Jake Peavy is debatable, but the revamped Tigers scored more runs in the first four innings than they did in the last three games in a 7-3 victory. The Tigers evened the series at two games apiece, and Anibal Sanchez, who threw six hitless innings in Game 1, faces Jon Lester on Thursday in Game 5. "I don't want to sound like this [lineup switch]

Dodgers General Manager Ned Colletti said Thursday as the July 31 non-waiver trading deadline approaches that he isn't optimistic his team will make a late-season splash similar to the acquisitions of Hanley Ramirez, Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford and Josh Beckett last year. “I don't see it happening, there's not that type of group of players out there,” Colletti said. “It's a really thin market, more than in past years.” Colletti said while he remains interested in bullpen help, teams vying for the second wild card in both leagues have narrowed the list of those looking to deal.

C.J. Wilson is beginning to understand how Ringo Starr felt when the Beatles drummer, worn out after the 18th take of "Helter Skelter," flung his sticks across the studio and screamed, "I've got blisters on my fingers!" Wilson had to bow out of Tuesday's All-Star game because of a blister on the middle finger of his pitching hand. The Angels left-hander, who has battled blister problems for years, was replaced on the American League roster by Chicago White Sox right-hander Jake Peavy . "I can't begin to explain how frustrating it is to have an issue with a tiny little part of your body," said Wilson, who is 9-5 with a 2.43 earned-run average.

Chicago White Sox right-hander Jake Peavy won't make his next minor league rehab start because of muscle tenderness and irritation in his surgically repaired right shoulder. Peavy lasted only two-thirds of an inning, giving up three runs and four hits, Monday in a rehab start with double-A Birmingham. He returned to Chicago on Tuesday for an MRI exam, which showed no sign of major problems. Peavy will be on anti-inflammation medication for six days and won't throw until Friday.

Jake Peavy finally won and all it took was a minor adjustment in his delivery. Peavy allowed a run in seven innings, Milton Bradley homered and Brian Giles had a season-high three RBIs in the San Diego Padres' 9-4 victory over the Houston Astros on Friday night. It was the first win for Peavy (10-5) since June 19 against Baltimore. He was 0-4 in his previous five starts. Manager Bud Black said Peavy worked with pitching coach Darren Balsley on some mechanical adjustments, and it seemed to work.

From San Diego The kingdom could be theirs, and theirs alone. There are no market monopolies among the major league teams this year, but there could be one next year. If the Chargers move from San Diego — most likely to Los Angeles — the Padres will become the only team in the majors without competition from the NFL, NBA or NHL. That might be about the most positive light the Padres could put on trading their best player over the winter: Adrian Gonzalez wasn't going to be here in two years anyway!

The day is coming, and probably soon. The Cleveland Indians will promote catcher Carlos Santana , and we'll start to find out whether the kid the Dodgers traded for Casey Blake two years ago was a surplus prospect or the next John Smoltz or Jeff Bagwell , a long-term stud sacrificed for short-term help. The Dodgers did just fine, for their purposes. They got Blake to help push them toward October, and with him they advanced to the National League Championship Series in consecutive years.
