White Sox Talking Trade With Padres For P Peavy

A team from Chicago is showing interest in trading four players for Jake Peavy – but for now, it’s not the Cubs.

It’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 “something to think about” yet also restated his desire to stay in the National League. One of Peavy’s teammates said he believes Peavy respects the Sox’s aggressiveness in pushing for him but may have reservations about pitching for Ozzie Guillen, the White Sox’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 club’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.
