Peavy to White Sox?

27 posts in this topic

The Padres and White Sox have agreed on the terms of a potential trade that would send All-Star right-hander Jake Peavy to Chicago, two sources told MLB.com on Thursday, and the ball is now in Peavy's court.

Peavy, who has a no-trade clause and must approve any deal, reportedly met with Padres manager Bud Black after Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Giants to discuss the White Sox interest in the Padres ace, according to a report in the San Diego Union-Tribune.

"I only know what you guys know," Peavy said late Wednesday when asked about a potential deal.

Peavy has stated that his intention is to remain in San Diego and it is believed that if he were to agree to a trade, his preference is to remain in the National League.

The 2007 NL Cy Young Award winner is in his eighth Major League season. He has spent all of those with the Padres and has a career record of 89-67 with a 3.21 ERA. He is 3-5 with a 3.82 ERA in nine starts this season.

Two players believed to be in deal are left-handers Clayton Richard and Aaron Poreda, a first-round Draft pick in 2007 who would be the kind of front-line starter the Padres would desire.

Richard, 25, has no record and a 4.33 ERA in 14 appearances for the Sox this season, including two starts. Poreda, 22, is 3-4 with a 2.53 ERA in eight starts for Double-A Birmingham. He has allowed just 32 hits and struck out 50 in 46 1/3 innings.

A considerable part of any trade negotiations could be the money remaining on the contract Peavy signed in December 2007.

Peavy, who is making $11 million this season, will make $15 million in 2010, $16 million in 2011 and $17 million in 2012. The Padres hold a team option for $22 million with a $4 million buyout.

The White Sox are 17-22 and in fourth place in the AL Central, but are only 5 1/2 games out and are looking to improve. Their GM, Kenny Williams, has shown himself to be aggressive in acquiring players. Current White Sox he acquired include pitchers John Danks and Gavin Floyd and outfielder Carlos Quentin.

Danks came from the Rangers and won 12 games last season. Floyd, who came from the Phillies in a 2007 deal for Freddy Garcia, won 17 games. And Quentin hit 36 home runs after arriving from the Diamondbacks in a minor deal.

Peavy was nearly traded in last offseason to the Cubs, who pulled the plug on a potential deal at the Winter Meetings in December. The Padres were actively shopping Peavy because they were trying to shed payroll to get close to the $40 million mark targeted by club chairman John Moores.

Peavy is is coming off a complete-game victory Sunday over the Reds in which he allowed one run with eight strikeouts and no walks. He threw a career-high 92 strikes in that game, against 29 balls.

an upgrade for sure. I don't think he's quite 2007 form, but he's now the K leader in the NL.

full no trade clause and has said in the past that he wants no part of the AL

He will prolly veto the sox due to cellular field. We could throw Cuddy at em, Giles is hitting .166 and the youngster they brought up isnt much better. Cuddy's 8 mill vs. Peaveys 11.....just a thought.

Ahhh I hope those big dollars the White Sox are ABLE to pay him don't cloud his memory in that case. The Twins couldn't afford him, if they could they would still have Santana. Oh no not the Cuddy argument again.

You can't tell me if we want to contend we need a TRUE number 1 pitcher. Right now we do not have anything close to that.

Cuddyer 8 Mill to roll out 6 days a week 9 innings vs 11 mil to a pitcher to throw 6-7 innings 2 times a week. Makes perfect sense.

Peavy also talked with White Sox reliever Scott Linebrink, a friend of the National League Cy Young Award winner and teammate from 2003-07. Linebrink said that Peavy asked very pointed and direct questions during their Wednesday afternoon conversation, but left the chances of Peavy coming to the White Sox at 50-50 when Linebrink spoke with the media Thursday.

"I don't know," Linebrink said. "I couldn't say one way or the other. It's his decision. It's his family. He has to do what's best for them. I would say that given the trades that have not come to fruition, he's kind of running out of spots to go. This may be a chance for him to get out of San Diego.

Peavy turned it down because the Cell would have exposed him. Peavy's numbers are largely due to Petco. He wants nothing to do with the AL and the DH as well as having to pitch in a hitters park

would you want to leave sunny San Diego and bikini bodies to go to Chicago.....doubt it.

I think he didn't want anything to do with the designated hitters in the AL. He is just another gutless National League pitcher who would rather stay with a team that lost 100 games last year as long as he can pad his stats and keep the paycheck rolling in by pitching in the Grand Canyon that the Padres play in. Just goes to show that the real league is the American League!

The guy still bleaches his hair too. I guess he didn't want to copy Alex Rodriguez and get his hair frosted. Freakin fruit cakes!

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
