Itâ€™s the White Sox.
Los Angeles, CA -(RPRN) 5/21/2009 – According to Padres personnel, Peavy met with Padres manager Bud Black late Wednesday night to discuss a trade overture from the Sox.
Peavy, whose consent would be needed for a trade to any club, declined all comment after meeting with Black.
Within the clubhouse, though, Peavy referred to the situation as â€œsomething to think aboutâ€ yet also restated his desire to stay in the National League. One of Peavyâ€™s teammates said he believes Peavy respects the Soxâ€™s aggressiveness in pushing for him but may have reservations about pitching for Ozzie Guillen, the White Soxâ€™s volatile manager.
The Cubs and Padres were deep into trade talks in December, but the Cubs walked away, said Padres General Manager Kevin Towers. The Padres are about $5 million above the $40 million player payroll that Towers said the clubâ€™s majority owner, John Moores, has mandated for this season and could hit that number by moving Peavy, who is due $11 million this season.
