Could Jake Peavy be Headed to the White Sox?

12:05pm CST

According to ESPN News Services, Barry Axelrod the agent for Jake Peavy, doubts that Peavy is going to sign off on the proposed trade between the Padres and White Sox.

Axelrod apparently talked to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick and told him that Peavy has a "strong preference" to stay in the National League.

Sounds like this deal is slowly dying. Stay tuned....

According to Corey Brock of, there apparently is a potential deal being discussed between the San Diego Padres and, no not the Chicago Cubs, but the Chicago White Sox.

There's no indication what players would be coming back from the White Sox, but there are a few stumbling blocks that could bring this deal to a screatching halt. First, Peavy has a no-trade clause in his contact which means he gets to decide where he goes and second, Peavy has made it clear that he wants to stay in San Diego or at the least in the National League.

Keep an eye on this story, because if this deal is in the works it comes at a very interesting time especially with San Diego in the middle of a five game win streak.
