It has been reported that the Padres are shopping Jake Peavy and are already exchanging names with other clubs.

I think the White Sox should be in on these discussions. We have one and probably even two holes in our starting rotation if you count Contreras' injury and the Javy hopefully being gone.

You can never have too much starting pitching. What kind of package would we have to give up? Is Peavy suited to pitch at the cell?

Loading up the wagon to get 1 player has not produced the best results for the Sox. We did that to get the pitcher everyone wants too dump now.
WE'd also likely create holes in the pitching staff.
After all, Diego won 60 games with him.
And for those who don't like Javy because he's not "clutch", Peavy is a strange choice for a replacement.

Option C - We dont have the assets to get one of the best pitchers in baseball.

Sadly we don't have what it takes to get Peavy. We may, but I don't think it's worth it. Plus other teams can offer better than what the Sox can.

However, I'm almost positive Kenny will be inquiring about Jake. Hell Kenny even asked about getting Santana last year when he was on the market, even though it was all but guaranteed that he wouldn't get traded within the division.

If they were, it would be a short discussion.

We do have the assets necessary to acquire him, but it'd be far too expensive to acquire him.

Danks, Floyd, Quentin and Alexei would all be mentioned in the packages requested for Peavy.

If we want Peavy, we're going to have to give up full-time players on our team right now. We just can't afford to do that.

He's a great pitcher who also benefits from pitching in the NL West and at sea level in a pitcher-friendly park for half of his starts.

In addition, the Sox would have to give up too much to get him.

Perhaps the Padres would trade Peavy for Paulie, Fields and Poreda. :tongue:

Lets see...

He would never waive his NTC to come here.

The Sox don't have the prospects to get that trade done.

I don't see the front office wanting to take on the length of Peavy's contract.

they won't get Peavy. It just said on ESPNEWS that the Sox are not one of the teams he will waive his no-trade clause for.

We'd have to give up way too much and we don't have enough in our system to reload after we lose what we would lose.

We don't have anything left in our system.

They'd want our young everyday players (Quentin, Ramirez, Floyd, Danks).

Peavy doesn't want to go to the AL.

There's already a Peavy thread. Why did you start this?

Yes, what I meant was when we get rid of those players (Q, Ramirez, Floyd, Danks, etc...) we don't have the farm system to replace the everyday players.

Peavy doesn't want to go to the AL.

That IS the rumor.
