Default Peavy talks to wrap up this week?

Padres GM Kevin Towers said that if he does not complete a trade of Jake Peavy to the Cubs at these meetings, he will probably announce that he is keeping his ace to start the season.

"We have made progress, but if it is not worked out with the Cubs, I don't want to go into Christmas with so many holes and still working on this," Towers said.

Towers is probably bluffing, no? There's no sense of urgency with the Cubs or any other team that has interest in Peavy, so Towers might be trying to create some here.

Pretty much only the Cubs seem to be in on Peavy this round, so maybe this is a last ditch effort by Towers to get someone to deal for him before he has to lower the expected return for Peavy.
