Red Sox after Jake Peavy?

According to the Boston Herald, the Red Sox will make a run at dealing for Jake Peavy this offseason.

The asking price is going to be monstrous, but Boston certainly has enough young arms to swing a deal. Peavy, 27, has said he prefers the National League, though industry sources believe he won't veto a trade to an AL power. The Padres are thought to be asking for two pitchers and a position player, most likely an outfielder.

MY TAKE ON THIS: I don't think that any one of us are that enthused about giving up any of our established kiddie Korps...Lester, Masterson, etc. Outfielder? Probably Coco Crisp, even though he finished very strong. I don't think we'll give up on Ellsbury, since he is pegged as our future center-fielder but had a very disappointing finish.
