Um, I'd say he obviously has bigger fish to fry at the moment than go to the gym. I wouldn't read too much into that.

I'm REALLY starting to think that Towers just played KW to up the asking price for teams interested in Peavy at the deadline.

It's called a GM chess match and KW is the pawn. I have no doubt Hendry has been in touch with Towers since this trade was agreed to.

Peavy wants that last year picked up.

Now that the Sox fanbase has been electrified perhaps they have some leverage here.



But to their credit, the Sox have shown no compunction about letting us down time and time again when expectations over a deal are high. As much as I hate it, it probably contributed to the 05 ring in a few ways.

He has the no trade clause in his contract. It is solely up to him to decide what the best move for him is.

Maybe he bought a Bo Flex?

Yes. We COMPLETELY know that. With all of these multiple sources we surely know what he is thinking. Why does it suck so much to be the lowly White Sox?

Maybe Kenny asked him to not make it official until after 1:00pm CDT so the official announcement could be made at the game.

Oh my god, dude, at least let the man actually make a decision before you lambast him for it.

Except KW has apparently been working on this deal for a year now.

If there's an agreement, wouldn't that be illegal?
