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.
