Peavy finally says yes to Chicago
By Joe McGehee Staff Writer
The Chicago White Sox acquired two-time All-Star and 2007 National League Cy Young Award winner Jake Peavy today in exchange for left-handers Aaron Poreda and Clayton Richard and right-handers Dexter Carter and Adam Russell. White Sox General Manager Kenny Williams has a history of getting his man, and the 2009 trading deadline proved to be no different.
Peavy, who has a full no-trade clause in his contract, had originally turned down a trade that would have sent him to Chicago’s south side earlier in 2009. Luckily for Sox fans, Peavy changed his mind, and will join the Sox starting staff in the heat of the 2009 pennant race.
