I didn't mind getting rid of Javy after the way he ended of the 2008 season. In so many ways, Javy was like the pitching equivalent of Rios. Loads of talent, ****ty attitude.

Yea, Javy had to go after 2008. That statement he made in September with the White Sox trailing by half a game about going to his house in Puerto Rico pretty much sealed the deal. At one point in September in a game against the Indians, Javy was choking as per usual and when Cooper came out to visit him Javy could be seen yelling at Cooper and AJ.

As to the internet reports KW was spotted in Altoona, if he was, it wasn't to scout. Altoona has not played at home since last Saturday and won't be returning until the 30th.

I was so disappointed when the Sox got rid of Javy, I made a killing betting on games he played. If it was meaningless, he was the second coming of Cy Young (winning style). If it mattered he was the second coming of Cy Young (losing style).

Yeah, but you don't give up an arm like for a pile of ****.

Your boy Keith Law earlier tonight on AM 1000 said Peavy should net the White Sox "a much bigger haul" than the Cubs got for Garza.

good comparison. It was just a poorly executed trade. Swisher needed to go to...just more poor execution.

Well, both of those guys are examples of good talent that wasn't maximized by the organization. Swisher in particular.

No comparison. Thornton 2-4 years ago, you'd have a point.

There are not even any good rumors at this point. THIS IS BORING.

I'm curious why Seattle was scouting Peavy yesterday.

I'd love to get Mike Zunino or Taj Walker for Peavy and cash.

I doubt they trade Walker, Hultzen or Paxton for pretty much anyone.
