Peavy to White Sox?


Recommended Posts

Buster Olney was on Mike and Mike this morning and he thinks it well get done pretty quick. He said the Padres really want MI talent.

I could see the deal being centered around Alexei Ramirez with Beckham taking over short for the Sox.

Any idea what the White Sox gave up? I'm wondering if G. Beckham is a PTBNL. If so, that probably takes them out of the running for Green. :clap3:

Also, I have a favor to ask of the mods. Now that it's official, can you take the question mark out of the title? Pretty please? :laughlol:

Only a rumor, but Aaron Poreda, Clayton Richard & 2 PTBNL's might be the deal.

Same thread cites a rumor that Peavy nixed the deal. Who knows?


MLB.com confirms that left-handed pitchers Clayton Richard and Aaron Poreda, who was a first-round Draft pick in 2007, are part of the deal.

The White Sox are taking a big bite. Peavey is owed almost $60M through 2012, and there is a $22M team option for 2013.

Not knowing who the other 2 players are, it sounds like a solid but unspectacular haul for Peavy. Poreda doesn't have a great SO rate, but he throws in the upper 90's and has pitched well in the minors. Richard seems like a possible 4th starter type. In the offseason, the Braves wouldn't give up Tommy Hanson to get Peavy, and Poreda's probably not quite the prospect that Hanson is.

    • PA intrusion wasn't all bad. He nixed the trade at the 2017 deadline that would've been Colin Moran (-0.2 career WAR) for Britton. 
    • I gotta give him some credit. Best O's teams in roughly 20 years
    • Didn't he have Trumbo already signed as a replacement for Davis?
    • Not to distract from the thread, but Duquette did not find Chen.   Before Duquette was hired, Buck Showalter spoke at some banquet and identified Chen as a pitcher the O’s were looking at seriously.  So, I’ll give DD credit for signing Chen, but not for finding him.  
    • Duquette basically sat next to Roch on a flight and basically said those words. I can't find the link but Duquette said there was only one person in the warehouse that thought signing Davis to that contract was a good idea. 
    • I’m kind of getting off point here, but the trade of Lopez did not cause these pitchers to be overused.   The bullpen actually pitched significantly fewer innings per game in the second half (3.65) than in the first half (4.08).   Akin, Tate and Krehbiel all were used more sparingly in the second half than in the first.  They may have gotten tired, but I’d say it had nothing to do with the Lopez trade.   Bautista was used a trivial amount more in the second half (0.41 IP/G vs. 0.40), though he tended to have longer outings than in the first half. Back to your point, I think if the team went to a six-man rotation, the trade-off would have to be that the starters would throw more IP/start than under a 5-man rotation.  Otherwise, you’re right that the bullpen will get overtaxed.    It’s encouraging to see that our starters carried a decent load in the second half of the season.  I hope to see more of that this year.  
    • Yeah, I think Dan deserves some credit here.  Good thread, WC. DD was a good GM despite having a hand tied behind his back almost at all times (no international scouting and signing in South American countries, Peter Angelos, Showalter, the Chris Davis fiasco, etc).  As mentioned, he did find some really good unknown players in Miguel Gonzalez and the little heralded Chen who were good performers.  He did what he had to do in order to keep the major league team in contention throughout most of the 2010s and I believe he did his best at drafting with a franchise that, under the Angelos reign, hadn't given too much to attention to the farm system. His fingerprints are still on this team, I'm not upset about it.  I liked DD, he was the first competent GM we'd had in a long time. I think this sums it up best.  He wasn't infallible, but his years here were mostly good.  Good teams to watch, sell outs at Camden Yards, playoff appearances, etc.  I would add to @glenn__davis's list that he gave in to Buck Showalter a little bit too much.  The Davis contract is evidence of that but I also feel like there were a couple of other times (I can't remember off the top of my head) where Buck got what he wanted, perhaps at the expense of the team moving forward.  Buck, as much as I liked him, too, made no bones about the fact that he wasn't interested in a rebuild or developing young players, etc.  He wanted his guys, his vets and I think that's another area where DD had a hand tied behind his back.
