Jake Peavy Vetoes Trade to White Sox
The deal that would send Jake Peavy from the San Diego Padres to the Chicago White Sox could hit a snag because of Peavy’s unwillingness to waive his no-trade clause. Peavy’s agent, Barry Axelord, informed ESPN.com’s Jerry Crasnick that Peavy prefers that National League.
Personally I wouldn’t blame Peavy for vetoing the deal. If you’re going to be traded, wouldn’t you want to go to a contender. Not that he couldn’t make the White Sox a contender, but a move to Atlanta, the Angels, Mets, or Cardinals would be more attractive options. What I would really like, taking off my Red Sox hat for a minute, if he were to go to Toronto. I’d like to see them go for it much like Milwaukee did last year acquiring C.C. Sabathia.
