I didn't realize my cut and paste would make this difficult to read. Much easier if you click the link.
Peavy actually does excite me. I think he's had a really good year this year.
However, remember, we still have the sexy trio of Lilly, Harang, and Cap for 1 more year. Combine that with Kersh, Bills, and likely RDLR, we'd need to dump one of those vets to bring in a stud #2
I'd love to outbid the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for Greinke's services next year and show them who's boss again.
We could deal one of the Lilly, Capuano, or Harangs if we wanted to eat some salary. They're all serviceable.

That is why you are the Koreman

I was thinking the same thing.
Lets see if he implodes pitching for the playoffs in Anaheim first
I expect the Dodgers will seriously discuss every offensive player of value including Hamilton, Napoli, Berkman, LaRoche (if the mutual option is declined), Youk (if option is declined), and Victorino. I can't imagine that Loney will be our firstbaseman next year. My hunch is we will make a push for Napoli, but he'll decide to go elsewhere to stay behind the plate and we'll end up with LaRoche. I think we will then resign Victorino for way too much. We may try to move one of our starting pitchers and sign Grienke, Peavy, or Dempster but my hunch is we will stand pat.

It wouldn't be a bad line-up. Sure, I'd much rather have Napoli at first and Hamilton in left, but I doubt that's going to happen.
I guess I'm just hoping for the obvious pick ups. Greinke or Peavy , Hamilton and Napoli. I have a feeling that our new ownership is going to flex its muscles and make at least 1 big splash.
