Burnett is not even in Peavy's class. Why anyone is considering giving Burnett more than a two or three year deal is beyond me. He has never gone back-to-back years where he has posted 30 starts and 200 innings.

The primary reason he has not gone to Chicago yet is the Cubs either don't have or are unwilling to part with the talent the Pads want in return. I have also heard that Peavy wants a new deal in exchange for waiving his no trade.
