ESPN’s Jayson Stark and Gordon Edes reported Tuesday afternoon that the Cardinals were interested in acquiring veteran right-handed starter Jake Peavy from the last-place Red Sox, with Stark predicting that a trade could come together quickly. But it doesn’t sound like there’s a fit.

The trade deadline is rapidly approaching and Rick Hahn already has his poker face on.
Jul 8, 2014, 1:53 PM EST

Ryan Dempster posted a disappointing 4.57 ERA in 171 1/3 innings last summer for the Red Sox and did not get a postseason start, but he was still expected to open the 2014 campaign in Boston’s rotation.

Jake Peavy so enjoyed riding around in a six-wheel-drive amphibious truck at Saturday’s Red Sox World Series championship parade that he went ahead and purchased the thing. No, seriously … So @JakePeavy_44 is fired up because he bought this boat. Yup, the whole thing. This is our Ducking City! http://t.co/EQqhwpiDcE — Boston Red Sox (@RedSox)…
