Jon Heyman says the White Sox and Padres have agreed to a Peavy trade, and await Peavy's approval. MLB.com's Corey Brock agrees. Ken Williams, always operating under the radar. Now we get to see just how much Peavy hates the AL.
Peavy is owed an additional $8.35MM this year, $15MM in '10, $16MM in '11, $17MM in '12, and a $4MM buyout for '13. Total: $60.35MM guaranteed through 2012. It is surprising to see the White Sox willing to take on such a commitment to a pitcher.
Via Gonzales on Twitter: "Waiting for approval from Peavy on SD trade, according to source."
Well that stinks, I still think Jake Peavy is making a mistake and his stats will still decline. The ownership also screwerd us, if the Cubs had a owners, Peavy will be a Cub instead of a White Sox.
Who can the Cubs go after now to help there ball club,
