Seems like this keeps happening with ace type pitchers. Happened last year with Santana where the Mets got a bargain on him, and now the Cubs, if they do get him, will probably get him cheaper than some of the first offers.

Teams should learn from this, and in the future if dealing an ace type pitcher, take the best deal you get as soon as you can, because interest just seems to fade from then on. I think they Padres should have dealt him before free agency started, because now agents can make teams think they have a shot at signing a CC or Burnett when they really dont, and it makes them not as interested in Peavy.
