I'm glad someone brought this up because I never thought that 2 years at just under 30 mil for Peavy was all that close to a bargain, like Jake and others were so willing to proclaim. Given his injury history, and the degree of severity of his lat injury, I even feel like the Sox may have got hosed a bit. I know there are reports out there that other teams wanted Peavy in the offseason, but how much of that is agent talk and how much was actually GM's wanting to give him a 3-4 year deal or more than 30 mil for 2 years is anyone's guess.
