Over the weekend, professional rumor starters, a.k.a. reporters, said that the A’s had emerged as the front runners in a field that includes other postseason hopefuls, the Red Sox, Orioles, Dodgers and Cardinals, to land Jake Peavy, one of the top starting pitchers on this year’s trade market.
It makes sense for the A’s—adding a veteran pitcher to the rotation, that is. The A’s are at or near the top in almost every major pitching category among AL teams, but they still have a very young rotation. Pretty much every pitcher not named Bartolo Colon has been prone to ugly hiccups now and then (see: Jarrod Parker’s start on Sunday, for one). It’s also not a bad thing to have all the arms you can when you’re hoping to make a run at the pennant.
Right. About all that…
#Athletics off Peavy, moving onto other pursuits – bullpen, middle IFer. Will dangle some of players they would have traded for Peavy.

Now former Chicago White Sox starting pitcher, Jake Peavy, was traded to the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday in a three-team trade involving the Detroit Tigers as well.

Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz didn't hesitate when asked what he remembered most about newly acquired right-hander Jake Peavy.
Nearly seven years ago, the 37-year old Ortiz was in Japan with a group of major-league stars. He watched Peavy throw in the bullpen and told him he would win the Cy Young Award.
A year later, he was correct.
The Red Sox acquired the 2007 NL...

Jake Peavy to Red Sox-Jose Iglesias to Tigers-Avisail Garcia to White Sox
Jake Peavy was finally dealt Tuesday night (pending medicals). Boston is obviously worried about their rotation depth, due to Clay Bucholz’s current ailments. Peavy hasn’t been as effective this season as he was earlier in his career and he always carries an injury risk. With that being said, Peavy’s...
CSN Chicago is reporting that Jake Peavy was pulled from his start tonight with the Chicago White Sox. It doesn't necessarily mean that he is coming to Boston, but we can't rule that out yet.
Also, the Sox are still the biggest player in the Cliff Lee sweepstakes. We already know Bogaerts won't be dealt and no other names have been thrown out in the talks.
So, the Phillies blew an opportunity. The Boston Red Sox, according to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, gave acquired starting pitcher Jake Peavy from the Chicago White Sox. Heyman says that shortstop Jose Iglesias is included in the deal. This could mean highly touted prospect Xander Bogaerts will be called up...
So we saw the Jake Peavy trade last night, perhaps facilitated some by the latest wave of Biogenesis suspension rumors. Are there any more relatively big names to be dealt? Who got the better package for their ace - the Cubs with Matt Garza, or the White Sox with Peavy?
I am not a believer in Jose Iglesias - at least, in his bat. I thought that the Red Sox did well to flip...
The Detroit Tigers guarded against the expected suspension of their
shortstop, Jhonny Peralta, by adding a gifted young replacement,
Jose Iglesias. Call it the Jake Peavy trade. Or call it Biogenesis
Trade I. Biogenesis Trade II is expected Wednesday.
