Do we have a record going on for the number of viewers (members and guests) viewing a thread?

FWIW, Axelrod hasn't spoken to Peavy since yesterday afternoon.

I still think if he really, REALLY didn't want to come to the Sox/the AL he would've rejected it from the beginning.

Christ almighty, would you just take this stupid negative crap elsewhere? You don't know any more what Peavy's thinking than anyone else, so stop with the definitives.

The only way I'll come out of this angry(I'll certainly be depressed for a day or two, hell probably the rest of this horrible season) is if we learn that Uncle Jerry and his merry band of owners played a role in this falling through. This info will probably be kept private, but someone will leak the info eventually.

Frankly, I don't think this has anything to do with moving his family to Chicago. If this were the Cubs, he would have already accepted and the entire North Side would be singing "Go Cubs Go" this afternoon.

It comes down to whether Peavy wants to pitch in the AL and play for Ozzie. I have no idea what he will decide. I hope he comes here, but if he declines, that is his right.

Why the hell is the agent talking to the media before his client? He sounds like a keeper.

To call him a ***** because he doesn't wanna pitch for the White Sox just shows your ignorance.
And I say those players who refuse to be traded to another league, are also *******.

Adds fuel to the "its a negotiating stance" aspect of his comments that Peavy's leaning away from the deal.

Which is almost exactly what Griffey said last year. I don't blame the guy for wanting to think about it.

If KW has been working this deal for 11 months, why is the NTC a stumbling block now? They couldn't have figured this out before?

And where the hell do you get off making definitive statements like he won't?

I fully expect you to link to these posts in your sig, if Jake Peavy accepts, so this way people will know what it means in the future when you "call 'em like you see 'em."
