C'mon, don't you know that every GM in MLB has it in for the Sox? They get bonuses for screwing the Sox and crushing their fans.

Congratulations.

So, if Jake actually accepts, you'll be the first to admit that your posts are ****ing crazy?

Honestly he didn't really say anything of interest. Just how he doesn't know what he'll do, he had to talk to his family and think about it. That's it really.

Thank you.

That Rosenthal article actually made me feel a lot better. Talking about contractual things like picking up the option, changing the partial NTC to a full NTC, etc. Those make it sound like it's about the negotiations rather than him not wanting to come. For example, if he's willing to come if they pick up the option, then there's a possible compromise (say they increase the buyout in the option year). If he just didn't want to come to the AL, that would be a harder threshold to get over.

Plus, if these factors are still being negotiated, I'd fully expect the agent to say "right now I'd guess he won't come, but we're still talking" just to maintain PR leverage on the Sox.

What's Linebrink doing? He should be flying out there right now to pull Peavy's ass onto a plane to Chicago.

Do you really believe he is gonna accept this? The guy doesn't want to come to the AL. It's as simple as that.

Good question. However, I think the agreement is probably in principle, nothing in writing.

I'm just a bit miffed as to why the Pads would agree to this KNOWING Peavy's desire to stay in the NL. It all seems a bit strange.

He has a no trade clause and can pitch wherever the hell he wants to. If he wants to pitch for the Cubs, Braves, Brewers, or wherever, than that's entire up to him. If he doesn't want to pitch for the White Sox then he doesn't have to. There are players that like the AL better and players that like the NL better. To call him a ***** because he doesn't wanna pitch for the White Sox just shows your ignorance.

I'd still like to send him a fruit basket if it goes through. Hell, I'd send him an entire bushel.
