I'm trying to figure out why he wouldn't accept the trade. It's not Chicago, as he's made known he'd play for the Scrubs. The Cell and Wrigley are both hitter-friendly parks. The Sox are committed to winning every year. We apparantly wouldn't be giving up much, thus leaving a competitive team for Peavy to play on for the future. His contract is still good for four years, and if the Sox guarantee his last year, I don't see why coming to the AL would be a big deal.

If the trade goes through would Peavy have the no trade clause in his contract with the Sox then?

well there's some confirmation that he really hasn't made up his mind yet. you'd think the players involved would be the first to know. what time did Poreda update his status, just out of curiosity?

I think someone mentioned a reason earlier: he may prefer to remain an NL pitcher because they don't have to face the DH, and that can translate to a better ERA and better stats.

Agreed, but the Sox offense is old and bad, it's probably the main reason, outside of him wanting to hit, that he'd say no to an average team like the Sox.

From what I am understanding is that if Peavy gets traded the 22 mil option automatically kicks in and Reinsdorf gave to ok to make the deal knowing this. I could be wrong I guess, I have been many times before

Yeah, but he's not getting W's with the Padres.

What a weird division the NL Worst is. Players just circle from team to team around there, and no one gives a ****. Does anyone actually want to compete in that division?

He updated it about 5 minutes ago. It showed up on my feed (yes, I'm his facebook friend).

Seriously, if Jake would come if his option is picked up and the Sox decline, it befuddles me. By my count, they'd have a sum total of 0 big money players under contract for Jake's option year, giving them significant flexibility to structure team payroll around it. And by then, who knows what'll be happening with the economy, MLB contracts, etc?

Im going to the Cubs Padres game tomorrow night here in San Diego. Peavy and Zambrano are slotted to start. If peavy doesnt take the trade im going to be throwing batteries at both him and zambrano.

Don't know if the NL thing is coming from Peavy or his agent.

But for what? His contract is for 4 years and a lot of cash. Even if his stats go through the roof, does he really need to sign another huge contract at 31 years old to support himself? Besides, isn't the league your pitching in factored into any contract discussions? I would think so. It's not like contract discussions take place in a vacuum.

Well, that would be assuming they don't lock up Danks and Quentin.

This guy sounds like a tool. Who cares if your ERA is a little lower in the NL. It is all relative, and he has just a good of shot at winning in the AL. Actually better since there are only 14 teams. I really doubt this goes through. As I previously said, when a story breaks this early they usually fall apart. Except the Griffey deal of course.
