Ace in the Hole

The San Diego Padres CEO says that the team would likely start the 2009 season with star pitcher Jake Peavy on the team.

The news comes less than a week after a deal with the Cubs blew up.

"We are no longer actively pursuing any trade for Jake, which is not to say someone won't approach us," Alderson told the San Diego Union-Tribune. "We said from the very beginning ... that we would not make a trade unless it made baseball sense."

Peavy will make $11 million as a Friar in 2009.
