ST. LOUIS (AP) - Jake Peavy could have been starting Game 3 of the World Series for the home team.
Dealt from the Chicago White Sox to Boston as part of a three-team trade in July, Peavy was being pursued by the Cardinals last summer.
Peavy says Friday: ''I know it was a pretty serious conversation I guess they were having in St. Louis.''
With the Series tied at a game apiece, the 2007 NL Cy Young Award winner will start for Boston on Saturday night in his Series debut at age 32. Joe Kelly takes the mound for the Cardinals.
