Peavy Coming to Chi-town - But Not the One You Think

ESPN's Peter Gammons are reporting the White Sox are close to a deal that will net the NL ace. There's no word yet what the Sox are going to give up on the deal and of course Peavy could always veto the deal with his no-trade clause.

If Peavy was smart I think he would do what he could to stay in the NL. I envision that first Josh Beckett like year of adjustment for him. It could be messy until he figures out AL lineups.

That is reportedly why he turned the trade down, because he wants to stay in the NL. I don't get it personally. Sure, there will be some adjustment time, but he is a good pitcher and he will figure it out. And it is not going to cost him any money.

He is guaranteed something like $12 million a years though 2012, and there is a $22 million option for 2013 which will surely have to be guaranteed as part of any trade.
