I'm kind of late, but this seems like an awful deal for the Padres. I understand that Gordan Beckham is probably untouchable, but he would've been the perfect guy for the Padres to get. A top of the rotation guy with Peavy's ability should be able to get you much more than 4 mediocre pitching prospects. They desperately need some young middle infield talent, and in my opinion Peavy should be able to get you a guy like Beckham.

I'm sure they would've liked to get Beckham, but he was certainly off-limits. The Pads were under pressure to cut payroll (by a LOT, iirc). They get 4 young pitchers (2 with good upside, 1 with solid bottom-of-the-rotation potential) and shed $50+ mil in the process. Not a bad deal, especially for a guy on the dl for the last 2 months or so.

They'll be picking high enough in the draft to get their hitters there, anyway. As long as they avoid those Matt Bush-type picks.

All that i'm saying is that should have, and could have gotten more.

QFT they waited too late to move him, he should have been moved in the offseason when they where offered more.

They tried but Peavey handcuffed them with his no trade clause,, In the long run I think the Sox lost out on this trade, as Peavey has a violent delivery that causes injury issues, plus how will Peavey help the Sox in 2009? he is still iffy coming back this season.

i don't think peavy will do that well in the AL, he doesn't dominate outside of petco and has a bad history against AL teams.

He has a career 3.84 ERA on the road. I suspect he'll be an AJ Burnett type pitcher in the AL.

His stats are fine in interleague play to date. 20 starts, 3.29era, 120 ip, 33 bb, 113 k, 1.17whip.

I would have preferred to keep him in the NL, but he should be getting more run support. I was a proud peavy owner until a month ago, dealt him for Zobrist and a #1 Round Draft Pick (keeper league 8th rd equivalent). I personally didn't think he would be back this season.

He had far better control than AJ. He won't post sub 3 ERA but I think he will be more like Beckett in Boston.

On the White Sox telecast, the announcers said the hope is for Peavy to be ready at the end of August (8/25). There's a 3 series set that goes Boston/NYY/Min that management hopes they can use Peavy for.

The White Sox don't play in a tough division now, and it doesn't appear as if the AL Central will be much tougher next year. Trading for Peavy makes the White Sox clear favorites, and gives them a great 1/2 combo for short playoff series.

Regarding injury history, I know it seems like Peavy is always out but he really does pitch quite a few innings. Not counting this year, his lowest IP total since 2003 is 166 innings. Last year he threw 173 innings, and the 3 years prior to that pitcher 200 innings+.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike
