According to Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Padres are in discussions to send Jake Peavy to the White Sox.

"According to Padres personnel, Peavy met with Padres manager Bud Black late Wednesday night to discuss a trade overture from the Sox:.

It is apparently a four-player offer. Jake Peavy will have to accept a trade to go to a team and he said, it is something to think about. Also Krasovic says Peavy "may have reservations about pitching for Ozzie Guillen."

Corey Brock of MLB.com ask Peavy about the rumor and he said "I only know what you guys know, Peavy was talking about the media.

Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune, says scouts from the Padres were at the White Sox games last weekend in Toronto.

SI's Jon Heyman still believes Jake Peavy prefers to stay in the NL. Heyman also mentions he still likes the Cubs or Brewers as teams he will be traded to.

It is believed to be the Padres will ask for 1 of their top pitching prospects ans 1 could be Aaron Poreda, other players that might be included are pitchers Gavin Floyd or John Danks, and a centerfield or second baseman (they have a lot of those 2 positions).

If I was Jake Peavy, I will not go to the Chicago White Sox because they have no offense, will have no run support and I don't think they will make the playoffs. Its like being a Padre, no run support and no playoffs.

I still think the Padres should wait until the ownership for the Cubs is settle because I think they can get a better package that includes top prospect 3B Josh Vitters who is lighting up Single A ball right now, Jeff Stevens who is pitching really good in Triple A with a era in the 2's, Randy Wells or Sean Marshall who both can pitch in the rotation and out of the bullpen and a outfielder Brad Snyder, Jason Duboise. I don't think Jake Fox is a good fit for them because they have 2 third basemans and want someone who can field. I still think Jake Fox will be trade to a AL club who need a bench player or a DH, some time in the future.

I really hope this does not happens, but if it does, Jim Hendry will have to look a different direction.
