Found August 02, 2013 on Suicide Squeeze:
The Battle of the Sox drawer just got more interesting We all knew that this trade was possible but it has hit like a ton of bricks. Jake Peavy is changing his Sox color from WHITE to RED, In a three team, seven player trade, Jake is off to the Boston Red Sox. It is a little confusing so I will try my best here to wade through all the information. Jake is off to the Boston Red Sox Detroit sent  Jose Iglesias to the Red Sox, along with  pitcher Brayan Villarreal. Avisail Garcia comes to the Chicago White Sox from Detroit with a pit stop in Boston.  Avisail will start with the Charlotte Knights but they do not expect him to stay there long. (@AvisailGarcia34) Coming to Chicago from Boston is Minor league infielder Cleulius Rondon(age 19) and pitchers Francelis Montas( age 20) and Jeffery Wendelken.(age 20) That is the simple sort of it all. You can find Avisail on twitter and I He is already getting tweets from Chicago fans welcoming him on board. You can reach Jake at @JakePeavy_44 **My Thoughts It has been along day and with being a huge Jake fan I am devastated to know that tomorrow he will not be there. I was so glad that I got  up early  to watch him pitch his last time in a Sox uniform.  It does not mean that my support for Jake will stop. I will still support him in what ever way I can. We have some good young kids as I call them, needing our support. It is rebuilding time, and I think we pretty much know we won’t be playing post season ball, BUT it does not mean that we can’t enjoy the season. Look for the positive stuff and look forward to next year and this group coming together for a great 2014 I really have not slept the last couple of days with the trade window being open, I am really hoping I can sleep tonight and have a fresh prospect tomorrow. Just a big THANK YOU so my #chisoxsorority sisters for their love and support tonight. Your support means the world to me, Especially tonight. See you on the field Cricket This article has been read (3) times

Jake Peavy Continues to Overcome Terrible Eyesight, Pitch Well Despite Being Legally Blind

BOSTON — Jake Peavy has his sights set on a World Series ring. The Red Sox hope he’s using his corrective lenses.

Peavy makes strong first impression

The Guru Contributing Writer New Red Sox starter Jake Peavy was impressive in his Boston debut Saturday night. When Peavy wasn’t muttering to himself on the mound, he was mowing down Diamondbacks.

So the Red Sox were active last night, pulling off a three-team, seven-player deal involving the White Sox and Tigers that, at its core, saw Jake Peavy coming to Boston and Jose Iglesias shipping to Detroit.

Jake Peavy: What the Trade Means, What he Meant

Red Sox excited by acquisition of RHP Jake Peavy

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 Trade Brightens Red Sox’ AL East Outlook, Rays Struggle With Matt Moore Injury

When the scorching-hot Tampa Bay Rays beat the Red Sox on Monday night, the AL East futures odds briefly changed, with the Rays moving ahead of the Red Sox as the division favorites.

Jordan Danks Recalled to Take Peavy’s Roster Spot

With the Jake Peavy trade going down, a roster spot opened up. Since Blake Tekotte was optioned to AAA yesterday to make room for Andre Rienzo, the Sox have recalled Jordan Danks from Charlotte to give the team another outfield option.
